“Roobarb” and “Where’s Phil?” rock JamSpot in Wakefield

On Sat­ur­day,  May 7, two of TJ’s “3 Chords to the Stage” work­shop bands made their debut with a rockin’ per­for­mance in front of an enthu­si­as­tic crowd of fam­ily and friends. Billy Jenks, JamSpot’s Direc­tor of Music Pro­grams was the MC and host for the evening.

The first band to play was “Roo­barb”, fea­tur­ing Lau­rie on lead gui­tar and vocals, Randy on bass and vocals,  Steve and Craig trad­ing drum­ming and per­cus­sion seats through­out the per­for­mance, and TJ on gui­tar and vocals. Roo­barb played an inspired 30 minute set of clas­sic rock tunes from Tom Petty, Jimi Hen­drix, ZZ Top and Susan Tedeski.

Fol­low­ing Roo­barb was “Where’s Phil?”, a band cre­ated out of  TJ’s Mon­day evening 3Chord work­shop. Where’s Phil? fea­tures Glenn, Randy and Paul on gui­tars and vocals, John on bass, the almighty Johnny S on drums and vocals and TJ on gui­tar and vocals. The band played an eclec­tic set, putting their unique spin on songs from War­ren Zevon, Tom Waits, Tab Benoit, Elvis and Robert Palmer.

The 2 groups joined together to close the night with a rous­ing ver­sion of the Eddie Money clas­sic “Two Tick­ets to Par­adise”, which included a spe­cial guest Henry on guitar.
