Two Man Gentleman Band + Plus Four

Wednesday night at the Pour House, I had a double treat.

I've enjoyed Miss Tess and the Bon Ton Parade many, many times.

This time she shared the bill with another of my favorite groups, er, I mean, duo.

The TMGB (Two Man Gentleman Band) last performed here about three months ago at Eye Level Art.

That was the last stop on the Gentlemen's tour and near the end of the Eye Level as well.

The music venue/art gallery later closed and the owner went back up to New York.

But Fuller Condon (a.k.a. The Councilman) on upright bass and Andy Bean, tenor guitar, are kicking off their new 2012 tour.

They have said if you yell out a theme, they can compose a song to match it. And they're darned good at it. "The Rabbit Foot Stomp" features bunny meat and "Fancy Beer" is when you're willing to spend a little more at the bar.

They just launched a full album CD called "Two At A Time" and it captures their talent and zaniness.
I also have noticed that both groups draw the local Swing Dance Association members.

They were out in force Wednesday.

They too enjoyed the double offering and literally danced the night away.

When the TMGB announced Miss Tess would join them at the close, it was the first-ever pairing onstage and the happy feet danced as the Swingers did their thing.

(Click on the images for more detail.)

It was early, early Thursday as we all started to depart the PoHo.

Drive carefully and be safe.

Play and dance in moderation.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm sleeping in for a while.
