Had an absolute blast last night at the Dakota Tavern, where I finally got to see Erika Werry & the Alphabet live. It was a toe-tappin’, head-boppin’ night of music fun in an awesome all-ages kitchen party atmosphere!
Here’s the blog I posted a while back to shout out the band’s CD launch for Think yer so Smart and the follow-up post featuring the music video for “What.”
Erika Werry’s most excellent band includes: Kate MacLean (drums/backup vox), Michael Hopkins (guitar), Mike Tuyp (guitar) and Wes Neal (bass).
Here are some snaps I took during last night’s gig:
Happy New Year, all!
