Review by Fred Rudofsky

While the name of the venue is a strangely generic, the music to be heard on this late September night at the Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park was cooking with exotic, bluesy tones and abrupt tempo and instrument changes.

The Missing Cats – a duo featuring Widespread Panic’s John “JoJo” Herman (keys/vocals) and Sherman Ewing (guitar/vocals) – opened with a spirited set of fifteen songs drawn largely from their excellent new album, Larry Brown Amen. Barrelhouse piano powered “Good for Nothing Lazy Bum,” the opening song, and from there the set went off in all sorts of directions.
