Good music

Originally published June 15, 2004

Gary Blodgett was playing at Irish Kevin's today and I went down to listen to him. He is one of the best pure musicians I've ever heard. He plays guitar, banjo, mandolin and fiddle, and he can cut the shit out of every instrument he picks up. The guy is DAMNED GOOD.

My only complaint with Gary is that he just stands up there and plays his ass off. He has no STAGE PRESENCE.

That has changed now. He has a partner who plays bass with him and that guy serves as a front man to interact with the crowd and do all the things Gary never did before. Together, they make a formidable team.

If you ever come to Key West, go hear Gary play. You won't regret it.
