It was showtime for Ramblin Jug Stompers, but Mister Eck was nowhere to be found. Cousin Clyde headed north to see if Mister Eck was possibly stuck going ’round and ’round Latham Circle. Bowtie scoured the woods around Parkway Music, where Mister Eck has a small cot set up in the back room. And Wild Bill searched the dark, winding alleys of Troy to see if Mister Eck had perhaps left a trail of ukulele picks that might lead rescuers to his whereabouts…

Alas, it was all to no avail.

So the Stompers corralled Mister Eck’s Lost Radio Rounders bandmate Tom Lindsay to fill in at their third-Monday-of-the-month residency at McGeary’s Pub earlier this week. Fortuitously, Lindsay brought along his piano, and he and Cousin Clyde banged away at the keys throughout the night, adding a special bounce to the RJS’s already jaunty sound. He also brought along a batch of new, old songs that spiced up RJS’s electic, vintage Americana songbag.

The audient thoroughly enjoyed himself and sent along these photos…

PS: In case you were wondering, Mister Eck was eventually located crawling down the backstreets of the Big Apple, having gourged himself silly on a dizzying diet of free Broadway shows. Hopefully, he’ll recover before Monday, June 20, when Ramblin Jug Stompers return to McGeary’s Pub for a free show in celebration of the first day of summer…
