Last Week’s Sauce: April 26th – May 2nd

We must be approaching festival season because the next gigs for three of the five bands in this week’s piece are at festivals. We’ve got a healthy dose of Grateful Dead this week with segments from both Burlington’s Dead Sessions and Zen Tricksters. We’ve also got a tune from RAQ’s return as well as Jim James lending some lead vocals to the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and a new My Morning Jacket tune that does not feature James on lead vocals.

HT Contributor Wade Wilby let me know that this was a good segment to include this week as friends of HT Adam King and Christina Durfee both contribute some top notch vocals. Nice Bobby impressions Kinger. Looks like this ensemble doesn’t have any future gigs on the books as of now.
