The Drop Daily with RJ Bee

Late Night Jazz Fest on Festival Circuit. We have reached episode 4, where we’re going to go in depth on the late night music scene around the annual jazz festival. We start with the legendary shows on the Riverboat President, and trace that history and those performances to today’s typically-thriving late night scene that spans a lot of the city. We hear from people like Rob Mercurio of Galactic, Robert Walter, George Porter, Jr., Irma Thomas, Papa Mali, and more.

1996 Lexington Gin on Beyond the Pond. On this episode, Brian and Dave take on the Bathtub Gin from the 11/7/96. A jam that was ahead of its time, and is still one of the most memorable of all time. It was a week after their Remain in Light cover, and you can just start to hear the 1997 sound creeping in. As always, you’ll hear about new music and music inspired by the sound of this jam.

Osirecs: FeelFree! I want to give a shout out to a band that I’ve been listening to for 10 years, FeelFree. This is my brother-in-law’s band, so I’m biased, but they have great songwriting, tight playing, good jams, and awesome horn lines. This is good Summer music, so you should check them out.
