Perpetual Groove Joined by Barefoot Manner Duo

Jeff Garland (washboard) and Shawn Chase (mandolin) of Barefoot Manner sat in with Perpetual Groove at the Last Call in Athens, Georgia last Friday. The two emerged early in the set to join on a cover of Paul Simons I Know What I Know.’ Perpetual Groove also performed their first full version of ZZ Top’s Nationwide (their debut version at The Apex in Statesboro was aborted due to sound difficulties- the song is apt as the band has now traveled nationwide following a west coast trip). Their strong set also included an extended ‘Crockett and Tubbs’ (with some wild drumming by Albert Suttle), and a ‘Free Ride To The Show’ which segued into a rap jam, during which the three frontmen (Brock, Adam and Matt) left their instruments to get ‘on the mike’ as they tore through Hip-Hop numbers like, ‘Money Money,’ ‘Let it Flow,’ ‘Can I Get A,’ ‘Better Than Yours,’ ‘Do the Ladies/Do the Players,’ ‘Bounce with Me,’ ‘Rhymin’ and Stealin’‘ and ‘Hot Music.’
Perpetual Groove will perform Thursday at The Beta Bar in Tallahassee, and Barefoot Manner (not Manor as they were listed on the Last Call marquee) will play at The Pour House in Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday. The two bands will join forces again (this time with PGroove opening) for a show at the Lincoln Theater in Raleigh on Saturday, March 20
