Colin Dussault's CD Release Party

This past Saturday the Elderly Brothers opened for Colin Dussault's Blues Project at the Savannah in Westlake, Ohio. We had a great time!

Colin drew a capacity crowd, which turned out to be the largest audience ever for the Elderly Brothers. The folks were friendly, receptive, applauded when they were supposed to, and didn't throw anything. After our set complete strangers told us we done good. Booze has that effect on people.

Colin and his band put on an amazing show. Any Blues/R & B band that does a number that features a Theremin solo is OK in my book. The show included Cleveland-area gospel singers the Prayer Warriors, a smokin' three-piece horn section, and some very tasty licks from a steel guitar player -- a member of Hillbilly Idol, according to Brother George.

This gig was the CD release party for Colin's latest, Not Tonight, I've Got The Blues, and the Blues Project's set consisted almost entirely of tunes from that CD. Great stuff. Do yourself a favor and buy a copy.
