Holy cow are we ready for the day of rest! Night 3 of the Rumble was just as rocking as the previous two!
Things started up with The Autumn Hollow Band (whose singer played barefoot – an offense that always skeeves me out!) – but their brand of alt-country was expertly delivered – with awesome guitar and upright bass licks to boot. Video 1 – Video 2
John Powhida International Airport had me in stitches with his from-the-stage Rumble trash talking (mostly aimed at Jenny Dee & the Deelinquents – telling the judges to listen up because he’s pregnant). J-Po’s legendary funked up set got hips shakin’ and took the night:
Spirit Kid took the stage last & delivered their jangly ’60s pop. I couldn’t keep my attention away from Ken Marcou’s serious tambourine chops. Best tambourine playing ever, hands down. Also, the rest of the band was awesome. Video 1 – Video 2
