Brendan Bayliss Reprises Rebubula with moe.
moe. was plagued with more bad luck over the weekend . On Friday snow storms forced
Buffalos police chief to issue a city wide driving ban, causing moe. to cancel its performance at the citys Tower Ballroom. The group was back in action Saturday however, inviting Umphreys McGee guitarist Brendan Bayliss to sit in for Al Schnier throughout its performance at Albanys Palace Theater. Bayliss offered his take on a number of signature moe. songs including Rebubula, which Umphreys McGee frequently covered in its formative years. During moe.s second set, the group also played a prank on the always studious Bayliss (who did his homework and charted moe.s songs before performing with the group Saturday), skipping their last note and throwing a spotlight on the guitarist at the end of Rebubula, causing him to miss his only note the entire evening. As he has a number of times this week, Transamericans/freebeerandchicken keyboardist Kirk Juhas also performed with moe. throughout its set.
