New Year’s Eve @ Fat Cat: Avi Rothbard Trio
While most venues seemed to advertise and sell their New Year’s Eve packages for a lot of money and required reservations and/or standing in lines, Fat Cat might actually seemed to be way more accessible than their regular Saturday night. And the same $3 admission as always. And no fuss. Very refreshing.
And actually great music as well: Avi Rothbard (guitar), Jared Gold (organ B3) and Pete Zimmer (drums). I thought they sounded great!
They played, among other things, the Jitterbug Waltz, You Go To My Head, I Don’t Stand A Ghost Of a Chance With You, Midnight Blue, Sunny, Road Song, Just Friends, Feel Like Makin’ Love and some originals.
As they took quite a few requests, I tried to make one for Wives and Lovers, but they said they had played it in the first set (which I missed)
I was happy to start my year with them!
