It had been about three years since FGC had been back to Cicero's and a triumphant return it was. We split the night with our old friends 56 Hope Road (who you can catch us with in Chicago on Fri, June 13th @ Martyr's) and a rowdy good time was had.
FGC opened the night with a strong performance. We played crowd favorites such as The Charmer, Oye Como Va and Wrath of the Solids as well as some newer numbers like Guns of Ticonderoga and yet to be titled, New Tune 17. Casey Fitzpatrick, 56's sax player, joined us for a rippin' version of The Chicken, woohoo!
56's set was as hot as always and yours truly was invited to sit in for three blistering tunes including one of my all time faves, Glacier.
The night was a blast and it's always a treat to get back together with our old friends from St Louis. We are also very grateful anytime we get a chance to hang out with the 56 crew and are eagerly awaiting our Martyr's show with them, which coincidentally, is Janis' annual 27th Birthday! Be there or be square.
