F&G is back for the blues
Rockland — The Monday Night Blues series continues with the F&G Band featuring Sandra Taylor Monday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. at the Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. Admission is $10.
Those who attended the Blues Ball at the Samoset got to hear this band’s high-energy playing as the opening act for Shemekia Copeland. Some say F&G stands for funk and groove but it refers to Suzanne Foschino and Sly Geralds, who formed the band around the music they have written together. The F&G Band is burning up stages with the multi-talented Sandra Taylor on lead vocals, the daughter of the legendary Sam "Bluzman" Taylor adding her own distinctive page to her family's music history book. Geralds (bass/bandleader/songwriter) has performed with Al Green, Maceo Parker, Slam Allen and Bill Perry, to name a few. Drummer Tom Foschino has performed and recorded with blues legend Sam “Bluzman” Taylor for several years before Sam’s passing in 2009. Chuck Russell, one of New York’s tastiest guitarists, brings his own edge to the blues and perfectly rounds out this new found sound known as F&G.
Next up in the weekly series are: String Bean & The Stalkers, Nov. 19 ($10); Belfast-based The Juke Rockets, raising funds for their Road to Memphis trip, Nov. 26 ($10); and the annual Blues Year’s Eve Party with Eddie Shaw and the Wolf Gang, Dec. 3 ($15), which will wrap up the series for 2012.
