Volto Live!

Volto are playing in LA once again, as usual at the Baked Potato(!) this Thursday the 9th of February. You know the drill, if you’re there, check them out, if you’re in the remaining 99.9 percent of the population, don’t go…..

It would be nice if for once someone would give a report of what the shows are actually like, maybe even some pics or sounds.

ive seen volto 3 times and they are pretty much a jam band playing covers of old tunes and occasionally there own originals. some hendrix, zeppelin, stevie ray vaughn, jeff beck, etc. each one in there (obviously DC too) is a studio/professional musician and they know their shit.

blair is always there, maybe i should kidnap him and go braveheart-torture on him to get some new album info…or backstage passes.

to further describe the sound…danny is playing on a small kit (relatively small….still has double bass drums), wood finish, really nice. the songs he does in there are obviously more mellow, so you get to appreciate his technicality and variety of sound more…a lot off jazz type music.

two shows ago at the knitting factory he had a drum off with the guy from suicidal tendencies (ron something….) danny was obviously holding back but it was still cool….they were doing ‘good times, bad times’ while trading off drum solos periodically.

Stevie Ray Vaughn? Hot damn. I’d really like to hear a recording of that.

yea it was good…they did Texas Flood…John Z nailed the solo.

Oh and to the guy who posted the blog…there’s no place called the “Potato Factory” you are confusing it with the Baked Potato and the Knitting Factory
