"1920s Dangerous Jazz...When I read about the type of music to be played, Tin Roof was where I wanted to be last night!
Ragtime. Blues. Mardi Gras. Saints Marchin' in. Yikes.
Add to that, members of the local Swing Dancers Club were there in force contributing to the merry musical mayhem.
Blair Crimmins & The Hookers filled almost the entire stage area.
The Atlanta-based group includes a 3-person horn section, stand-up bass and drums.
Crimmins played keys, a banjo, guitar, tambourine and cow bell.
Well, not all at the same time.
The many black lights can make you go ape as you look at the bright and shiny wall image and they cast an eerie glow on the bands and the crowd.
Nice touch for this funky - always entertaining - music venue in West Ashley.
Did I mention you also can expect gourmet hot dogs, unusual craft beers on tap and an endless supply of PBR?
Megan Jean & The KFB were playing when I arrived.
She announced that Crimmins & The Hookers had already played a short set and would be on again shortly.
Sounds like the role of "opener" was being flipped back and forth.
Worked fine with this music-crazed crowd.
I asked Megan about her blond hair and she laughed and said "Yeah, I changed it from black. I looked too much like someone else."
It was just that kind of night.
