Saturday Matinee – Bobby Banas, Booker T. & the M.G.s, Zontar Venus, and MonoNeon w/ Davey Nathan,

He was 30 years old when he ripped up The Judy Garland Show in 1964. From the Utoobage comments:
“The ‘Best Boy Dancer’ happened to be the choreographer for this dance. His name is Bobby Banas. He also played Joyboy in Westside story.”
I’d say the girl did a bang up job but she got no credit.

Al Jackson Jr., Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn, Booker T. Jones,
aka Booker T. & the M.G’s, groovin’ in 1971.

Zontar Venus. You’re on you’re own with this one. [h/t Gord S.]

Modern soulfunkgroove (with some serious technical music skills embedded).
MonoNeon: lead vocal, background vocals, guitar, bass;
Davy Nathan: keyboards, drum programming.

Guess that’ll do for now. Hope the summer heat is cooling down to a  more tolerable level for y’all, and remember: it ain’t the heat, it’s the humanity. See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Old Buckers, Roy Buchanan, Pete Anderson & The Swamp Shakers

Buckin’ and beer. Buck dancing is related to clogging, flat footing, step dancing, and this film from the 1950s refers to it as skiffle. You already know about beer.

Roy Buchanan, aka “The World’s Greatest Unknown Guitarist,” from a PBS documentary 1971. Buchanan was most famously associated with a 1953 Fender Telecaster nicknamed ‘Nancy’. In 1988 he was arrested for public intoxication and was found hanged from his own shirt in the Fairfax County Virginia Jail. He was 48.

Pete Anderson was “the very first true rocker in the entire former Soviet Union” and formed The Swamp Shakers in Riga, Latvia, in 2009. Anderson passed away in 2016, but The Swamp Shakers continue performing as a trio.

Getting kinda late, so I’ll wrap this up and send it off to the internest. Have a great weekend, we’ll have more fun tomorrow.
