Welcome to a Tuesday edition of the Sunday Night Music Club, from Monday night in Hartford! I guess that makes this a very special "Tuesday Edition of the Sunday/Monday Night Music Club"!
Every Monday night, Tapas Downtown Hartford welcomes The Shinolas delivering Americana and roots to set the mood as you chow down on the restaurant's big, bold options. (Tapas information here)
The Shinolas features Jim Chapdelaine on guitars, Lorne Entress on drums, Paul Kochanski on bass and Ed Iarusso on pedal steel.
Mike & Tessa (pictured) have been after me for ages to see this band, and I'd heard about them elsewhere, like in Ed McKeon's blog Caterwauled; Ed has a great write-up about the band, so click on the link and check it out.
So CT Joyce & I joined them for the trek up to Hartford for an evening of tasty music and equally tasty food. We're glad we did! Enjoy this video I camera'd last night.
(...and I can't believe I got through an entire post without resorting to an obvious "Shinola" joke...)
