I dropped in at the Salmon Bay Eagles last night to see the guitar showcase hosted by the Eagles and Chris Stevens' Surf Monkeys.
The show featured the Surf Monkeys (Mark Dalton on bass and Russ Kammerer on drums) backing up guitarists Chris Stevens, Rod Cook, and the Preachers guitarist Tim Sherman. I was invited by Tim to sing a couple of tunes during his set, and split shortly afterwards, so I only caught two sets of music.
One tune that stood out to my ears was the Surf Monkeys' version of "Spoonful" that featured a haunting slide solo by Rod Cook. The enthusiastic crowd was treated to plenty of surf and blues instrumentals also.
Here are a couple of photos from the show for y'all:
