BluesTraveler.net has learned that the recently-announced "Wasserman
Sessions" has yet another Blues Traveler family connection - front of
house engineer Bo Mahoney has played an integral part in arranging the
first of what will hopefully be many shows. Mahoney has been working for
Blues Traveler for fifteen years and has been a fixture behind the board
for the last five, but it was actually his friendship with Rob Wasserman
that got him involved in this project, and led him to bring John Popper in
as part of the first session.
The inaugural gig may have some other musicians dropping in for guest
spots, both local talent as well as nationally-known artists within the
scene but no names have been confirmed as of yet. Would-be guessers are
encouraged to check Jambase or Pollstar
for other bands touring in the area to see who might drop by. If all goes
well, Wasserman and crew plan to make these regular monthly sessions with
other artists coming to town, including other guests from the bassist's
extensive list of friends and collaborators.
Tickets for the December 15th show went on sale earlier this week through
web site. Tapers are welcomed and encouraged to attend!
