Wednesday night Antone's was rocking with a standing room only crowd. Headliner was Junior Brown who proved all over again that he can smoke a guitar. The first set lasted about an hour and a quarter and ended with a rendition of Roll Over Beethoven that simply brought the house down! If Chuck Berry had stuck his head in the door halfway through that number he would have shit his pants, then headed home and put his guitar on eBay.
The second set began with only a five minute break and this is where the fun really started! Junior Brown was joined onstage by Jimmy Vaughn and Redd Volkaert. Junior took up position on drums while Jimmy and Redd traded licks on Junior's guitar. Finally settled into the perfect combination with Jimmy on vocals, Redd on Guitar, and Junior on drums.
One final note, Redd Volkaert plays the Continental Club on Saturday afternoons at 3:00 - no cover.
