Dylanfest

 

continued

But as the night went on, the stage became more crowded, and the lovely lyrical tunes gave way to fantastic renditions of rockin' songs. My favorite was the Show Ducks, an ad hoc amalgam that included members of OBASOL, writer and saxophonist Steve Amick, and Jim Roll, who as far as I could tell was wearing red long johns and carrying a percussive stick adorned with a cowbell, tambourine, wood block, and high hat. They looked very interesting, and I was eager to see them perform.

Well, I'm here to tell you: show those ducks did. The two women singing up front sported feather boas and fishnet stockings. Amick sang through a bullhorn on "Maggie's Farm" while someone played "The cow says moo" on a Fisher-Price See and Say. They looked hot and sounded great. The crowd loved it.

Dylanfest is on Saturday, May 15, this year, at the Blind Pig. It always sells out, so get there early.    (end of article)
