Tater and The Wednesday Weekly bootleg

Tater and The Gravy Train from Mike Ekey on Vimeo.

Since 2007 I have had an unhealthy relationship with Harry's Country Club and the band that plays there just about every Wednesday.

Along with Old Crow in the Bourbon well and a new patio, Harry's also has Tater and The Gravy Train (which has endured three years of obnoxious heckling and requests from my table).

After a brief hiatus from the stage at Harry's, Tater returned with an acoustic show last night cementing the fact that winter is finally over and it is time to get a drink on the patio downtown.

Yes, we made him sing House - and yes, he also did the twangy version of Dancing Queen. The rest of his four hour set was a pure exercise in coming up with and performing deep classic country cuts.

Thanks to @stevis - @mariacater - @the_shovel and other non-twitter friends for drinking it up and enjoying the tunes.

We will be back next Wednesday.

(If you are able: Harry's is holding a great fundraiser for the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society tonight with Flanagan's Right Hook. $5 to get in and all sorts of beer specials.)
