Touring w/Monophonics (San Francisco Soul/Psych/Rock)

  Recently I've been lucky enough to tour with Monophonics, a great San Francisco-based Soul/Psych/Rock sextet.  Their recent album "In Your Brain" was released on Ubiquity Records, the same label as my band Ikebe Shakedown.  We toured The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Switzerland and Germany and had a blast, they're great dudes.  Tomorrow we start a US run from Wichita to Buffalo - no rest for the weary!

  Here's a video of Aretha's classic "Baby I Love You" from The Blues Garage in Isernhagen, Germany (I solo a bit after the 3:30 mark), and part of Sly Stone's "Underdog" from a wild club show in Paris.
