Jazz & Funk
Went to the Continental Club to see Mike Flanigin play in the Lounge. Mike plays Thursday thru Sunday at 10 pm every week. He’s a great Hammond B3 Organ player. He said his backing players vary from night to night. Last night he was playing pretty jazzy stuff. Other nights it’s more bluesy and funky depending on who’s backing him up. The Lounge is next to The Continental Club and above the tattoo shop. It’s a great place to listen to the music and hangout. Basically, it’s a big hip living room, with a bar.
Mike also plays in Barfield – The Tyrant of Funk, another of the Continental Club’s regular bands. They hold down the Tuesday 10 pm slot. I haven’t seen them yet, but I listened to their record and it is some funky stuff.
