Fat Tuesday with Soul Specimen
On Tuesday night after Honor Choir, I went to Shooters Bar down the hill from the college to photograph, to film, and to enjoy Soul Specimen's sounds.
The Fat Tuesday fun attracted a good crowd to Shooters, and I stayed for a set and took a series of pictures that feature the band members and the horns that joined Soul Specimen for a number.
Two of the videos I created showcase Laura Fortney on vocals, the first a Soul Specimen original the group performed live for the first time that evening.
To conclude the first set, Laura and the band belted out "White Rabbit," a song she last performed while very pregnant at Oakfest this past September.
You will also enjoy a part of the entertaining jam session, All That Brass, that includes Wil Gleason on Trumpet, Jake Acers on Trumpet, Michael Casavant on Trombone, and Pat Fortney on Tuba.
