Last Thursday night I caught Tony Petersen, who is the drummer in Annette DaBomb’s Bomb Squad bluesy jazz band, singing and playing a George Benson cover tune This Masquerade. He’s accompanied by Alan Zundelevich on keyboards, and a bass player who was filling in last week.
They were playing at the Gaslamp Speakeasy, and you can catch them there the next two Thursday nights and this coming Friday night. Don’t miss Annette before she leaves us at the end of the month.
Thursday night, I was able to catch the lovely Annette DaBomb and talented bomb Squad band members at the Gaslamp SpeakEasy. They are a total delight (and often quite playful) as they perform a soulful mix of blues, jazz and swing jazz, like the Frank Sinatra cover song The Lady is a Tramp in this first video. Accompanying Annette are Tony Peterson on drums, Alan Z (Zundelevich) on piano, and Doug Brunelle on bass, clarinet and flute.
Here is a blues tune: Aretha Franklins’ cover song Evil Gal Blues
And last, but not least, that great cover song Fever, first performed by Little Willie John and later sung by Peggy Lee, Elvis Presley, Ella Fitzgerald and many others.
Every Thursday night you can hear this beautiful lady’s voice at the Gaslamp SpeakEasy (from 9p-1am), singing a mix of blues and jazz. I absolutely love her voice, and I’m thrilled to finally get some good video clips from her weekly gig.
Annette is joined with her Bomb Squad band members… Tony Peterson on drums, Doug Brunelle on bass (as well as the clarinet and flute), and Alan Zundelevich on keyboard. In this video, the band is performing cover song Got My Mojo Workin.
For Billie Holiday fans, Annette will melt you as she sings this cover song All of Me.
And in this last video, Annette and her Bomb Squad are performing Eric Clapton’s cover song Further On Up the Road.
