My old buddies John Seabrook and John Homans have been fronting the Sequoias, a hard driving cover band, for quite a few years now. Here’s a story I posted, with video, from a show of theirs a couple of years ago.
Tonight they step up, however, with a gig at the Mother Nature Network’s White House Correspondents’ Jam at the Fairmont Hotel. The key ingredient this evening, however, aren’t the five bands that are playing that feature journalists, but the piano player for at least one number with each of them: Chuck Leavell.
Leavell is promoted as the piano player for the Rolling Stones, which is true, but I’ll always think of him as a member of the Allman Brothers Band.
Go see them if you can!
