This past Sunday was fabulous at The Shed. SFClive held the 2nd Annual John-A-Thon benefit and the turnout was simply amazing. Seven local bands followed by a drum circle in John’s honor took place. The amount of money raised was enough to buy the first set of equipment needed for the John Whitehouse gulf coast chapter of Guitars Not Guns. Thank you to everyone that came out to support such a great cause. It’s nice to see when bands come together and help each other out instead of worrying about their next gig. It’s great to see a community come out and support musicians for such a great cause. I wish I could have stayed for the entire event, but check out the pictures that I did take in our photo gallery.

This Friday night at The Original Shed BBQ & Blues Joint kicking off the 2009 ShedHed Saturday Night Concert Series the man considered by many to be a funk music pioneer, Ernie Vincent will hit the stage with the man on this month’s cover of the Chittlin’ Circuit Magazine, Uncle Ernie.

Ernie Vincent has gone down in the deep funk history books for creating that unhinged masterpiece of wah-wah guitar, multiple drum breakdowns and positive ghetto messages known as “Dap Walk. His appearance is intense, his riffs smoothly rhythmic and his leads as stinging as a hive of angry queen bees.

Vincent grew up playing guitar in the bayous of Southern Louisiana. In the early 70’s he formed the Top Notes. The group exploded in 1972 with the funk anthem “Dap Walk”. Most recently featured on the hit series “Sex and the City, Dap Walk has become a cult classic.

Since the 70’s Ernie has been collaborating with many great musicians. He has written and produced hundreds of great songs with artists such as Ernie K-Doe, Jean Knight, Tommy Ridgely, and Monk Boudreaux. He has been a special guest at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival for many years and his music has been on many compilations CDs across the planet.
