Oh What a Knight!
August seventh was the first "Live From Studio 5!" show for the month and Lonnie Knight brought with him an all-star cast with Gary Haberman on percussion, congas, other noise makers and shaky things, making for a great sound.
Reid Papke brought up the bottom with smooth bass. Additional harmonies were provided by Laura Owen.
163 - Mosquito Shoals -  (19) (1)
“The Mosquito Shoals” brought a fun infectious vibe to the Studio 5 and wove an undulating performance of original music and standards with their own stamp on each one. I must say I have been bitten, and infected with a raging case of admiration for this group. Don’t lose any time and check out a rebroadcast of the show at 5
There are also links to Flickr pics and the YouTube video.  Just scroll down the page for the audio player, and enjoy.
Also find them on Facebook, and visit the Live From Studio 5! Page on Facebook for updates, links and the L5 Blog.
Put these guys on your must-see list, invite 'em to your next show, tell your friends.
There were many great bands with insects in the name, Buddy Holly and the Crickets, The Beatles, and now the humble Mosquito with Mosquito Shoals.  I know they will be on again, perhaps in the New Year when their album is smokin'.
Still looking for Christmas day performance, any takers, please email me or Doug The Thug.
Till next time, the Reluctant Blogger,
