Indie band performs strong set at Occupy T-Dot gazebo
Had the pleasure of meeting and jamming with poet / musician Jesus Las Vegas this afternoon at St. James, and also was introduced to Johnny Righteous and other members of the excellent reggae rock soul combo Down by The Riverside, a Toronto indie band, who performed at St. James gazebo today:
This aft Jesus Las Vegas played harmonica on some of my original tunes (Big Bear, Ecology) and a cover of One by U2, while I noodled out a few blues leads for his songs. Here's Jesus from Day One of Occupy T-Dot, reading three of his original poems and inspiring the people with his uplifting vibe:
