Good times with the Good Time Specials

E-mail Print PDF

There was a great time to be had by The Good Time Specials at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, May 31 but not a lot of people to hear it.

I expected The Good Time Specials plays roots music. photo by Richard Ameryat least some of the approximately 35 people in the room to dance to the band’s great groove and  beautiful banjo playing roots rock music which was a mix of the Band and a more subdued Shred Kelly with just a touch of NRBQ thanks to some subtle organ playing.

They had a great groove. Their song “Whiskey” was a highlight of their first set which was a marked by jokes cracked from the stage which either nobody heard in the echoey room or weren’t paying attention too though they did applaud.
