Our final Blue Monday gig.

Highway 99 Blues Club - December 18, 2006

We (Harmonica Playboy & the Midnight Movers) hosted our final Blue Monday gig at the Highway 99 Blues Club on December 18th. This wrapped up a two year run at this gig for us. There several memorable nights during this period, but also many nights when we played to a practically empty house. A different band, consisting of members of the band Author Unknown, will be hosting the jam on Mondays starting in January.

We had a pretty good turnout this night, at least as far as the number of players that showed up. A lot of the regulars (such as Spoon Dickie, Bill Harper, and Chris Stevens) made an appearance, and we were treated to rare performances by harp players Kim Field, Mark Dufresne, Jeff Hertzog, and John Deely, vocalist Dana Luppinacci, plus guitarist Anthony Estrada.

Heres some gig photos for ya'll:
