Collaborations on the Cooperstown Blues Express
Peter Prince and Moon Boot Lover and the Albany, NY-based band Jerkwater Ruckus have a long history of collaboration. Indeed, Moon Boot Lover’s current bassist is Jerkwater Ruckus guitarist Ben Carle.
This past Saturday, members of the two bands performed together on the Cooperstown Blues Express, a three-hour train ride from Milford, NY to Oneonta and then back to Milford. Former Jerkwater Ruckus percussionist/vocalist Rich Lemire joined his old bandmate and the rest of Moon Boot Lover on percussion for the entire show, which included Moon Boot Lover classics like “Bag a Day Habit”, “Ali” and “Miss the Train.”
Peter and Moon Boot Lover perform next in Portsmouth, NH on June 11, while Lemire can regularly be seen performing with the DeadBeats on Wednesday nights at Albany, NY’s Valentine’s.
