Reviews and News - August 2008
Review and Photos from 8/4/08
Note from Nina:
We were all feeling very lucky Monday night 8/18 as we saw each of the guys in the band walk into The Joint.
We were all definitely lucky Monday night. The guys were fantastic, rocking through some wonderful songs and enjoying every minute of it. True symbiosis - smiles all around. Everyone was movin' to the music - on stage and in the audience. Did I say we're all very lucky? :-D
Waddy Wachtel always not only puts on a great performance on guitar and vocals, but he also pulls together a great band and set list. Lots of love for our Waddy!
Phil Jones on crashing drums and Jamie Savko on burnin' vocals returned as regulars with the Waddy Wachtel Band. Al Ortiz came in from Phoenix to play thundering bass while Rick Rosas is still on tour with Neil Young. Jason Sinay offered up some incredible guitar licks and vocals, filling in for Brett Tuggle who's rehearsing for his tour with Lindsey Buckingham. Keith Allison gave us big smiles and wonderful guitar, vocals and harp on some songs as well. We also had a couple of special vocals from Blondie Chaplin, who's happy to join the band when he's not touring with the Rolling Stones.
Did I say happy? We got a short bit of the Stones' song "Happy" during sound check, and it set the mood for the night......... Happy - one and all!
Here's the set list:
"Jumpin' Jack Flash" (Stones) Waddy Wachtel lead vocals
"Shot Down in Flames" (AC/DC) Jamie Savko lead vocals
"Rover" (Led Zep) Jamie lead vocals

Have you heard the new Kid Rock song "All Summer Long" that's burning up the charts right now? You might have recognized the music wondering...... where have I heard that before? Well, it's a take-off of the Warren Zevon song "Werewolves Of London" which was written by Warren, Waddy Wachtel and Leroy Marinel. Yes, the Kid gave writer's credit to Warren, Waddy and Leroy. Another coincidence: Stacy Michelle, who sang with the Waddy Wachtel Band for a couple of years, is a background singer for Kid Rock on his live concerts. Kid Rock's cd has gone double platinum 'cause of the hit song "All Summer Long".
"The House Bunny" will be released this Friday 8/22. Waddy wrote the musical score for the film, and he'll be starting the score for his next film this month. Waddy's also been working on some other sessions, and I'll let you know about them soon.
WWB won't be performing the next two Mondays 8/25 and 9/1 - SORRY! We'll sure miss them. But it looks like they'll be back on Monday 9/8. I'm still waiting for final confirmation........ Keep checking back - I hope to know by tomorrow.
Oh...... And Waddy said last Monday night that he'll miss our Mondays as much as we do for the next 3 weeks. It's true. All the guys love rockin' with us.
See you sooooon!!!!
