God Street Wednesdays: Tres Heteros

Back in 1988, soon-to-be God Street Wine guitarists Lo Faber and Aaron Maxwell gigged on Cape Cod under the name Dos Heteros. The pair worked plenty of jazz-oriented material into their sets as they honed the skills and communication that would pay dividends the next decade. Lo and Aaron have revived Dos Heteros in what has now turned into regular gigs with the last one taking place at Mexicali Live this past Saturday evening.


Lo, Aaron, Bevo and Jason – Epilog

Lo and Aaron presented a nice mix of originals and covers for the occasion. The set started with the guitarists working through five songs as a duo including Goodnight Gretchen, Run To You and a fun take on Fats Waller’s Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter.  Next, the pair welcomed GSW keyboardist Jon Bevo to join them for a sequence we’ll call Tres Heteros (thanks Lynn). Aaron, Lo and Bevo covered Brooklyn by Steely Dan, B.B. King’s Sneakin’ Around and delivered a tender rendition of Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits plus GSW classic Driving West and the rarely played Bevo original Wall off GSW’s self-titled effort. Former GSW utility player Jason Crosby came out for conclusion of the set, namely a gorgeous Epilog, Dear Prudence and Mile By Mile -> Nightingale. Next up for Dos Heteros is a late-night set at Red Square in Albany that just so happens to start around the time Trey Anastasio’s show ends at the nearby Palace Theater.

We’ve got one other note for this week’s column. While transcribing my interview with God Street Wine from Jam Cruise has been an extremely slow process, 16-year-old journalist Tyler Curtis didn’t have that problem. Curtis spoke with Lo and Aaron at Mexicali Live on Saturday and posted his interview the next day on The Shakedown Blog. Lo and Aaron talked about the circumstances that led to last year’s reunion, the role of the GSW fan community, Jam Cruise highlights and more. Check it out.
