Monday night went to Armando’s club in Martinez. Went with my friend Bob Rose. Armando’s is a great music venue. Small place, maybe seats 50 or 60. Every seat is the best. Everyone is friendly.

Listened for two hours to a band including former Tower of Power lead guitarist Jeff Tamelier and former lead singer Larry Braggs. My god what music. At various times Braggs sounded like Curtis Mayfield, Al Green and he finished with James Browns’ Sex Machine. Other times Braggs sounded like himself, and that was splendid. The band called itself Funk Truck or something like that. I think the name changes according to their whim. Cover was 20 bucks. Best live band I’ve heard in years.

You should check out Armando’s.
