Billy and Liza Join Crucial Reggae in Jam Cruise Tune Up
A number of shows took place this past weekend in Florida featuring performers preparing to embark on the Jam Cruise, which left the docks today. On Sunday at the Culture Room in Ft. Lauderdale, Bill Nershi and Liza Oxnard opened for Peter Rowans Crucial Reggae. During the course of the evening, Oxnard and Jillian Nershi performed with Rowan and Co. on No Woman No Cry while Bill Nershi added lap steel guitar throughout the groups set. While much of this performance focussed on reggae, Rowan also encored with a solo version of his composition Midnight Moonlight.The Former James T Kirk Releases Live Disc
TJ Kirk, which reunited at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco at the end of December, will release a live disc later this month. However Talking Only Makes It Worse is not drawn from these two shows but rather from a 1997 performance. TJ Kirk, originally called James T. Kirk before Universal Pictures which owns the rights to the Star Trek character asserted itself, features Charlie Hunter on 8-string, John Schott and Will Bernard on guitars and drummer Scott Amendola. The cover of Talking Only Makes It Worse presents images of James Brown, Thelonious Monk and Rahsaan Roland Kirk whose music the group covers.
