Would you believe this is my first blog post from Rodeo Bar? I'm surprised I haven't been there for music before. I tried to go to another 1st time venue for me, The Austrian Cultural Center for Peter Evans and some others. However, I was 1/2 hour late and denied entry. I was walking home and realized this would be a good walk-in. I asked who was playing and when I heard it had the word "country", I wasn't so sure. Then I heard it was Poppa Chubby and more like rock, so why not stick around.
It was a lot of fun. I liked the keyboard player a lot. I was dancing and enjoying. They did Cissy Strut and an instrumental Over the Rainbow. They did funk, blues, rock, and jazz. At one point, Poppa Chubby asked a woman in the audience if she wanted to sit in after the next tune. I immediately thought "singer". I was surprised when I saw her pull out a bass. She sang too and was great. It went up a level with her.
They started around 9:20ish and I left during that set at around 10:30ish, after putting $ in the tip jar of course.
