Neil Hamburger - Jug Town Live

Last night I was lucky enough to see Neil Hamburger and his Too-Good-For-Neil-Hamburger-Band perform their L.A. debut at Spaceland in Silver Lake, California. They were performing songs from their just-released cd "Neil Hamburger Sings Country Winners", buy it today!

Here's a portion of their "Jug Town", as performed last night.

Here's some photos.

A new band, a new sound, and a new look for Neil Hamburger. Yes, that's my sister Rachel on backing vocals!

I saw them in Seattle and it was the best thing I've seen in like ten hundred years. And his band is. Amazing. Rachel wasn't there which made me sad cause I love her voice!
