Lafayette can steal your heart with his deep southern blues, romanticism and playful charm, and I try to catch him on Tuesday nights where he plays regularly at the Gaslamp SpeakEasy.
Here he is performing Sonny Boy Williams’ cover song Dr Feelgood, with his band members, Chris Terrell on drums and Ronnie Baumslater on bass. The lighting is better now at the SpeakEasy, but it is still tough to fully capture Lafayette who almost always wears black. When the lighting isn’t good, the video gets a bit blurry, but most of it is pretty good.
In this video Lafayette sings about that Little Girl of Mine. I’m not sure who wrote the song, or who was playing the electric acoustic guitar who was sitting in with them last night.
Every Tuesday night you can catch Lafayette Falkquay and his blues band playing at the Gaslamp SpeakEasy. Lafayette is one of those southern bluesman you don’t get to hear often enough, so its always a treat for me to listen to him perform. Here is a video from last night with Lafayette singing Going to Louisiana, supported by Chris Terrell on drums and Ronnie Baumslater on bass.
Lafayette was playing his usual Tuesday night gig at the SpeakEasy with Ronnie Baumslater on bass and Chris Terrell on drums. I’m afraid its pretty dark to really see this video (and that’s what makes the SpeakEasy such a great blues joint), but you can hear them and get a taste of Lafayette’s sound.
