I should have listened to Maria.  Last night’s roads were covered in slush, not ice.  Instead of driving to the Blues Jam I headed home after work. This is a good time to post the sketches I did at The Tractor Tavern last week since I have none from last night’s jam.

Orkestar Zirkonium, Balkan Marching Band

I love Balkan Marching Bands.  Orkestar Zirkonium is fantastic! They are a ten piece brass band.

And then came Five Alarm Funk!  The energy level did not drop for two hours straight.  Incredible.

Five Alarm Funk at The Tractor Tavern

We met several of the band members earlier in the night while trying to buy tickets for the show. Fortunately, since the tickets were sold out, we got on the guest list.
