Surprise Me Mr. Davis Surprise
As previously reported, on Saturday Surprise Me Mr. Davis, the union of The Slip and Nathan Moore, performed a rare show at Brooklyn, NYs Union Hall. The supergroup stayed in the neighborhood for a few extra days to serve as the house band for their longtime friend Marco Beneventos wedding, where the ensemble was joined onstage by a full horn section, Joe Russo and the groom himself (The Slips Brad Barr and JFJOs Reed Mathis also performed during the processional). On Monday Moore and Barr both crammed into Brooklyns Petes Candy Store for a rare duo performance. Barr played first, offering acoustic versions of Life in Disguise and Ooh Belle, among many other compositions. Moore then previewed some new material before bringing Barr back for an extended set what stretched well into the evening. While in New York, Moore also stopped by the Relix/Jambands.com offices to record his second appearance on Relixs Cold Turkey podcast. Nodding to Beneventos wedding, the singer/songwriter, who arrived in the office still wearing his wedding attire, offered something old, something new, something barrowed and something blue.
