Last Friday night a heatwave of rolled in to New York City’s Brooklyn Bowl on a cold night. The heatwave came in the form of a progressive and psychedelic bluegrass double header with Cornmeal and Hot Buttered Rum. Naturally, there were a massive amount of sit ins and eventual “joint set” for the encore wherein the entire Hot Buttered Rum band returned to the stage with Cornmeal for “Be Kind Boys” and the bluegrass standard, “Will the Circle be Unbroken.”

Vernon Webb was at the show to capture the evening’s happenings through his lens.

In between touring with The Travelin’ McCourys, promoting his latest studio release, Bass, and popping up here and there as he is known to do, Keller Williams brought his Kids show to New York’s Brooklyn Bowl last weekend. As with previous performances, all was spot on as moms pretended to toot during “Mama Tooted,” a track from Keller’s Kids  release, dads laughed at said pretend flatulent and kids mocked them both while Keller the troubadour continued to play through the tunes that are ageless in terms of enjoyability.

Prior to the show itself, kids were encouraged to participate in a drum. They banged the assortment of percussive instruments while parents shone their pride for their offspring and their ability to not only make clanging noises, but to be cute while so doing.

Vernon Webb was on the scene with his daughter in tow and managed to snap a few shots in between the confetti, balloons and downright fun of the matinee.

As part of his recent residence at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl, Steve Kimock brought out a few friends, for the second of a two night stand, to help him bathe the crowd with the mystic guitar work and infamous groove for which he is known.

With a reissue of Pocket Full of Kryptonite, the collection of songs that included hits “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” and “Two Princes,” New York’s own Spin Doctors made an appearance at Brooklyn Bowl over the weekend. Following a set by James Maddock, the Spin Doctors rattled through hits of old that sounded fresh, and the band that rose from the famed Wetlands Preserve — and went on to national acclaim — returned to its roots as a band that is heavy on jam and it always was, friendly with hippies.

Vernon Webb was on the scene to catch some of the nostalgia through his lens.
