Golden Gate Wingmen Offer Grateful Performance In Return To Washington DC

first_imgGolden Gate Wingmen returned to The Hamilton in Washington, DC last Monday, August 15th. While the grouping is still relatively new, these guys have a long track record. It consists of John Kadlecik, Jeff Chimenti, Jay Lane, and Reed Mathis, coming from Grateful Dead-influenced projects like Furthur, Billy and the Kids, Dead & Company and Fare Thee Well, to name a few. The band features an impressive amount of talent and they bring unique touches to covers, as well as some of their own music. Their voices mesh together nicely and they clearly enjoy each other’s stage presence.Kadlecik is a local favorite, and the DC crowd is always energized when the Wingmen come to town. Fans noticed that Chimenti was down to one instrument. There were some tech issues with Chimenti’s organ right before showtime, and after a bit of tinkering, they ultimately pulled it. The night opened with a Dylan cover, “It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry” and a powerful “Crazy Fingers” with a seamless segue into “Dweller on the Threshold.” They hit on several classics, like a 21 minute “Terrapin Station,” a pretty “Throwing Stones” right into “Not Fade Away,” and a “Brokedown Palace” encore to close the night out. The Wingmen are in Asheville tonight, August 17th, before heading to Ohio and Chicago. Check out full audio of their DC show, uploaded by taperjeff, and a gallery of photos by Will Urquhart below.

The Team Mahindra driver, supported by JK Tyre and with Musa Sherif as his co-driver, won SS9 and finished second in SS10 and SS11 on Day 2 to regain his aura over the weekend with some brilliant driving.  Gill’s teammates, Dean Mascarenhas and Suhem Kabeer, too did well, taking the third and fourth positions in the overall category.READ | Jorge Masvidal Glad To See Colby Covington’s Jaw Break, Vows To ‘baptize’ Conor McGregorREAD | Olympians And Top Coaches To Train In Rs 180 Crore Gaudium SportopiaShivram takes INRC crownBengaluru’s Shivram, however, seems set to take the 2019 INRC champion, riding on his twin triumphs in the Rally of Coimbatore and the K1000 in Bengaluru. The MRF supported driver, who had suffered a massive crash in the opening stage on Saturday, returned to complete Day 2’s three stages to protect his lead. Chetan of Team Akshara, along with Dilip Sharan, nursed his car smartly, taking the tenth position in SS9 but revved up to the fifth in the last two stages for a valiant show. A second crown, the INRC 3 category, however, may well have eluded him as Fabid Ahmer (Sanath G) pipped him to the post.  Fabid finished second behind Aditya Thakur (Virender Kashyap) which was probably good enough to nudge off Chetan from the top. Team Champions’ Dr Bikku Babu (Milen George), a local favourite, finished third in the overall category and first in INRC 2 for a highly rewarding Popular Rally.READ | Khelo India Youth Games Will Produce Olympic Medals In Future: BorgohainREAD | When Conor McGregor And Ronda Rousey Gave An Epic Staredown In Intense Face-off Last Updated: 23rd December, 2019 07:53 IST Gill Wins Popular Rally For Fifth Time, Shivram Takes INRC Crown India’s top rally driver Gaurav Gill underlined his supremacy in the Popular Rally, the final round of the FMSCI Indian National Rally Championship for 5th timecenter_img LIVE TV Written By SUBSCRIBE TO US Press Trust Of India last_img read more
