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 – George Duke & Dweezil Zappa, MonoNeon & skArmy

George Duke showed up to play Zappa’s classic Uncle Remus with Dweezil Zappa‘s band in 2010. (If you like George Duke, this behind the scenes rehearsal from1978 is kinda fun. Jump to 02:50.)

Ignore the clickbait title – it’s a killer groove by MonoNeon. He’s right-handed, but plays left-handed on an upside-down right-handed bass. Dude can cover Zappa, too.

skArmy covers Save Ferris‘s cover of Dexy’s Mightnight Runners‘s Come On Eileen is a good one to wrap it up.

Have a great weekend folks, gonna do something tomorrow.
