The Pure Joy Of Jamming With Other Musicians

I had a blast last week.  It happens so infrequently, and this experience reminded me that I need to do this more often.  It’s the incredible feeling you get when you are invited to jam with other musicians, and I mean great ones like the Lost Cantina Band.

Mark Pierre (lead vocals), Paul Johnson (bass), Bruce Lamica (guitar, vocals), Kenny Stonach (drums),  John Adams (lead guitar), and Bud Devoe (engineer, photographer and videographer extroardinaire) are the Lost Cantina Band, and they were more than kind to let me sit in with them, as I’ve done a couple of times before, just for “you know what’s and giggles”.

There’s a weird non-verbal communication that happens when musicians get together.  I can’t even put it into words.  We don’t even have to talk at all.  We just start playing, and somehow we all know when to start, when to pause, when to be soft, when to crank it up, when to take the “solo”,  and when to say “enough”.  It’s probably the same if you are a basketball player.  You just know what the other guy’s doing without explaining it.  I guess that’s the best analogy I can give you.  But regardless, I totally enjoyed hanging out and playing, although I will say it was tough to keep up with them.  These guys are VERY, and I mean VERY good.   Makes me want to sit in on their next gig.  Hmmmm.. maybe if I beg them enough….

Would you like to find out where they’re going to be next?  Check out their website at   Go see ’em.  These guys ROCK. I mean, COUNTRY.  I’m very glad I FOUND the LOST CANTINA BAND.
