U-Melt and Jen Durkin: ‘Wanna Be Startin’ Something’
Looking back to last week, former New Groove of the Month U-Melt shared the bill with Deep Banana Blackout for a pre-Thanksgiving show at Toad’s Place in New Haven. Deep Banana’s Rob Somerville has appeared with U-Melt on multiple occasions in the past, including U-Melt’s Post-Jammys gig at BB King’s in 2006. At Toad’s, however, it was DBB vocalist Jen Durkin who joined in, singing lead on U-Melt’s cover of Michael Jackson’s ‘Wanna Be Startin’ Something.’
Next up for U-Melt is a Friday December 12 appearance at Stella Blue in Asheville, NC as part of the Christmas Jam by Day series. Deep Banana Blackout is off the road until December 30 when it opens a two night New Year’s Run at Fairfield, CT’s Fairfield Theater Company.
