I feel like a complete idiot for not seeing the Lefty Hathaway band before the AthensMusicCollective show. Seriously, I see Paul all the time at the office and I never knew that he could play the keys like that. Or sing so well for that matter! Yeah, I’m just dumb.
I was completely blown away by Paul, I mean, Lefty’s performance. A bit bluesy, a bit soul, a lot jam and a bit rock and roll, it’s a real treat to hear. The whole roots/jam thing is hit and miss with me but any time the guys onstage did a bit of improv, it seemed effortless. Those cats are funky. Take a listen for yourself. I think you’ll like what you find.
