Culp, Josh Lyon, Ezra Lyon, Jon Samuels, and John Cafferty during "An Evening with Ken Lyon: A Musical Retrospective" in April at the Stadium Theater, Woonsocket.
After a triumphant reunion in April at Woonsocket's Stadium Theater, Ken Lyon and Tombstone take it to the beach Saturday night, playing the Ocean Mist in Matunuck.
It's a DVD release party, offering a limited edition, double-DVD set documenting that concert, "An Evening with Ken Lyon: A Musical Retrospective." The video spans nearly the entire concert and includes guest spots by musicians from every phase of the Rhode Island bluesman's career including the Celtic Pendragon, The Shoe Fly Orchestra, and original Tombstone members Mark Taber on keyboards and Brenda Mosher Bennett on vocals.
In addition to a special appearance by drummer Michael Quinn after years off stage, this "Class of 2007" concert will include:
Rick Bellaire: Guitar, percussion (FolksTogether)
Don "D.C." Culp: Drums, percussion (Gary Guitar & The Grinders, Foreverly Brothers)
Gary "Guitar" Gramolini: Guitar (John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band)
Josh Lyon: Guitar (Ken's son, formerly of Triton)
Jon Samuels: Bass guitar (Gary Guitar & The Grinders, Foreverly Brothers)
Lori Martin: Vocals (Shoe Fly Orchestra, What's It To U)
Adrian West: Vocals
They sold out their 17-song retrospective CD, "The Best of Ken Lyon Volume 1," but did another pressing, so you can get that now, too.
I wrote a lot about Ken Lyon and Tombstone before and after the April gig -- with tunes, photos and a bit of video. My only complaint was that it's hard to dance in a theater seat, so here's a chance to boogie on the sand, if a summer Saturday night overlooking the ocean with a legend sounds like a memory you'd like to make.
Gary Gramolini's group, Gary Guitar & The Grinders, will open. Show starts around 9 p.m.
Free mp3s: At BigO this week,'70s tunes: Van Morrison, Mechanical Bliss (link fixed) and Neil Young, Chrome Dreams
