Reviews and News - April 2010
Note from Nina:
The Waddy Wachtel Band will NOT be performing at The Joint this Monday 4/12/10. I’ll let you know as soon as the next gig is confirmed.
Highlights from last night’s gig 4/5/10 at The Joint......
Just being in the audience at a Waddy Wachtel Band gig is definitely a highlight of the week for everyone there! But I can’t tell you EVERYTHING ........ You’ve got to come experience it for yourself. Here’s a bit of a peek at what went on.
The first set was fantastic..... beginning and ending with Brett Tuggle singing lead vocals on 2 Beatles tunes. Not many people know this, but Brett once had a band called The 4 Lads From The Valley - who played all Beatles songs. Brett nailed both tunes last night, and after he sang “I Am The Walrus” everyone was tingling.
Also in the first set.....
- Waddy Wachtel’s lead vocals and guitar on “Lawyers Guns And Money” were fantastic. That was one of the tunes he played on with Warren Zevon, and Waddy makes it come alive again!
- This is funny..... Someone asked me the name of The Band song WWB played in the first set. “The Shape I’m In” He said he didn’t remember The Band ever playing anything so intense. Well, we’ve got an incredible band here, folks!
A new song was added at the beginning of the second set - “Start Me Up” with Jamie Savko doing a great job on lead vocals. You know WWB started us up for a dynamite set. It was great - and a great addition. We had an earthquake here in L.A. Sunday, and the band was having a little rehearsal when it happened. Waddy said they’d just finished “Start Me Up” when he felt his chair still moving. (Yes, Waddy does sit down .... occasionally. :-) ) He went: “Whoa! What was that?” Well, it’s kind of like what we all feel at a WWB gig...... everything keeps moving!
WWB kept electrifying everyone through the rest of the night, including a very special rendition of “Just Like A Woman” by Waddy giving everyone goosebumps, and a rockin’ “C’mon Everybody” by Keith Allison making everyone sing along.
The set ended with “Won’t Get Fooled Again” - with Waddy Wachtel, Phil Jones, Rick Rosas, Jamie Savko and Brett Tuggle showing what exceptional performers they are, and creating ...... another earthquake! We loved it! Waddy was so hot on guitar that he burned through 4 picks on that tune. I think the cheers from the audience woke up everyone in the neighborhood. Yeah!!!!!!!!
