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.
