This blog/podcast is a review of the Hotel Cafe Tour at the House of Blues Anaheim on 11/15/06– the closing night. Cheryl Gilbert is one of my BFF’s– part of the "party posse" that  exists for my group of friends. When something’s cooking, Cheryl’s always game to give things a try and she had heard me talk   a lot  about Joshua Radin and the Hotel Cafe tour.  She was impressed enough from the  CD.

The bill included :

Sara Bareilles — smoking hot jazz inflected voice and presentation

Cary Brothers Courtesy of Hotel Cafe Tour

Cary Brothers— go beyond the first couple songs and listen to some that give you a snapshot of a much greater range

Joshua Radin — with 6 different podcasts on him, I think that I have said a lot already!

Alexi Murdoch— a surprise guest that was amazing.. and he is an apt fit. (photo courtesy of Alexi Murdoch)

Rachael Yamagata— her a capella work is fabulous!! She’s got an amazing voice and so much going.

Jim Bianco — courtesy of "the man"

Jim Bianco– the wild man of the tour– not that they all aren’t a bit outside the  box.

There were more people on the tour– a woman playing the most amazing violin and Jonesy.. who has an amazing voice too– though I can’t find a single photo of her .. though I might have missed it.

Take a listen to what Cheryl and I say about the different acts/performances and you might find some new tunes that you need to listen to as well as add to your CD and/or Ipod collection. I certainly have.
