[Harp-L] Sunny Girl/Iceman/RJ Harman Gig in Detroit
With the Superbowl as a backdrop, this past weekend was a lot of fun.
I played w/Sunny Girl and her band on Saturday Night at a fancy restaurant in
Detroit area - the place was packed.
Unbeknownst to Sunny Girl, I arranged to have RJ, along with Vicki, fly to
Detroit to take part in the festivities.
They met, got along great, and the second set opened with an a capella
version of a Gospel tune by Sunny Girl, followed by RJ Harman doing his solo version
of "Nine Below Zero" and the Beethoven "slight of tongue" Howard Levy
transcription. I then played keyboards while Sunny Girl sang "Misty" with RJ on
harmonica. Finally, the whole band took the stage w/Sunny Girl and RJ for "Rocket
88", Carlos Del Junco style.
As a teacher, it was a thrill to bring my two most talented students
together. The future looks quite interesting, as I plan on working with both of them
more directly as a unit concept.
With a little luck, a VCR amateur taping of this portion will be converted to
CD format and then posted on a website for all to enjoy.
