A word about last weeks Motor, We had a cancellation and we put it out on facebook on Wednesday and nothing panned out. Then on Thursday morning we got a call from funk percussionist Gabe Gonzalez and within hours we had a show with an amazing vocalist Tasha Owens, guitarist Mike Smith, and bassist Darryl Lee. They each brought a sample of projects they were working, which we played during the show and they played live in studio. It was so by the seat of pants yet turned out great. I hope your able to listen to the podcast and see what people can do when they work together.
