night I am launching a 4-day tour to Portland, Hood River, Bend and Blodgett (outside
Eugene) with a side project that St. Louis-based guitarist/producer Teddy Presberg
and I have been working on over the last month. These tunes are totally different
than anything you've heard The Great Salt Licks and I do. Teddy recently moved back
up to Portland and is flying up his organ trio from St. Louis for the tour. These
guys cook! The night will be very diverse musically, spanning folk, roots, and a
weird combo of Rock/Soul/Trance that will make you want to boogie.
Each night will start off with
some nice duo folk stuff from songwriter Billy Shaddox out of Salt Lake City.
Then I'll do
a set with Teddy and the organ trio will backing me up on several bew tunes I've
been writing up in the bus, plus a few GB standards. The GB set will have a different,
churchier vibe given Teddy's guitar style and the organ player's nasty chompy womp.
Then Teddy and the Resistance Organ Trio will bust out their funk/soul/rock/groove/trance
set and I will sing vocals for a bunch of their tunes.
So come out down for some rockin' groove-oriented 80's dance
party 70's soul licks.....we may even throw some Led Zepplin in there!
Here's a teaser of a Teddy + GB tune off his album Apocolypse
