If I were able to clone myself I would have used my other Matt to capture a lot more video from the Paul Simon tribute at Bar Four this weekend. Sadly, this little tidbit of Jessi Robertson’s take on “Mrs. Robinson” was all that I got.
Oh well. I’ll just have to refer to my memory banks to revel in the musical goodness from this killer LC Tribute — Matt Cranstoun’s bluesy “Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes,” Bryan Dunn’s pop-rocky “Me and Julio” (I whistled on that one) and tribute organizer Paul Basile’s dark and melancholy “Homeward Bound,” which felt like a Leonard Cohen-Paul Simon love-child.
Those were just a few. People really need to keep their ears open for the next LC tribute. They are always very, very good.
The very next night, I did a reprise of “Boy in the Bubble” with the band. Dan Jeselsohn and Taylor Floreth accompany me on this classic from Graceland. And yes, I am dressed as Sergio Ramos, defender for Real Madrid and the Spanish national soccer team. Can’t you tell?
