Along with Bernie Worrell, Eric Bolivar and Galactic’s Robert Mercurio, he will back Eric McFadden, and then, Dickinson will perform with Alvin Youngblood Hart and Dumpstaphunk’s Nikki Glaspie.

I know…I know, I sound like one of those guys who trolls around looking for errors; but, I must respectfully request a correction. For the date on Friday, April 26, I would bet that Luther is playing with Anders and John “Gros” rather than “Gross.” That is pronounced like “grow.” Just makes it sound better. No insult to this website—everyone who knows me knows well that I am not perfect. This is a great site and I mean no disrespect.

I used to come here for my news or updates however; fuck faces like “jazzfester” make it intolerable to just read and enjoy the current music news. He has plenty of time living in moms basement I suppose.

Really, Mitch? I was in college at Loyola when John Gros was studying music there. What part of “I mean no disrespect” did you not understand? But, as the internet is very democratic, there must be room for your profane rants. Relax, go see Papa Gros Funk at Jazz Fest, and I hope to see you there…they are going on hiatus soon. This is a great site and I mean no disrespect.
