Dave Harris wicked one-man-band

Pretty sure I saw CJ Chenier, Clarence Gatemouth Brown, Reverend Horton Heat, , Lee Oskar, Prince Diabate, Modest Mouse, Alpha Yaya Diallo, Mobadass, Bedouin Soundclash, Jeff Healey, Tegan and Sara. Nashville Pussy, Sloan (2), Barney Bentall, Ron Sexsmith, Jeremy Fisher and lots others 'lost' in my cloudy past.....I like seeing bands in the intimate setting of a bar ☺
