Mark Jungers And Friends @ Gruene Hall

Here's a nice show from Mark Jungers and the Whistling Mules from last week at Gruene Hall. There's a bunch of tracks on this show where he and the band turn on the electric guitars.

After they close the show with a rollicking cover of "Powderfinger" featuring special guest Scott Nolan, they get a few special guests to play some songs. Namely, Adam Carroll shows off two of his new tunes "Oklahoma Hustler" and "HiFi Love" before launching into a cacophonic cover of "Werewolves of London". Duncan Walters also does a pair of his own tunes before Mark rejoins the gang for a few more to close out the night.

Thoroughly enjoyable all the way around. Enjoy.

Recommended Listening...The

The Gougers have a new record called A Long Day For The Weathervane that just came out Tuesday (10/16). There are a few new tunes as well as a few old ones. You can download or order the new record from Anyway, get it. It's good. Until then...

Here's a nice soundboard recording of the Gougers (formerly the Sidehill Gougers) opening up for Scott Miller this past June at Stubb's. I have seen them a few times as an acoustic trio but this was my first experience seeing them with the drums (John Ross Silva) and a full-time electric guitar player (Lance Smith, formerly Hayes Carll's guitar player). I really enjoyed the lineup and the way they had reworked some of the tunes. The new tunes are also quite good.
