09.26.2011 – Rod Hamdallah – Due to prior engagements, Jim Ransone was unavailable this week and next. Rod Hamdallah was nice enough to come fill in for Jim for the next two weeks.

I showed up a little late for the set. As I walked up the back steps I thought, “Is that the Black Keys?” Sure enough, Rod was on stage jamming out on an older Black Keys song. Next was Muddy Waters followed by White Stripes! I knew in the first 5 minutes I’d really enjoy this set. He even mixed in a little blues version of Nirvana!

Jim Ransone showed up at the tail end of Rod’s set and performed one song for us on Rod’s guitar!

09.20.2011 – Little G Weevil – We love Little G! Not only is he a fantastic musician, but he’s just a fun guy to have on stage. G wanted to have fun with some friends tonight, so he did a duet with Danny Vinson as well as the young Cody Matlock. You’ve got to come out and check this guy out, he’ll be with us every Tuesday!

PRODUCT SHOT: We will be cross-promoting with Sweetwater 420 and we needed a way to tie in Darwin’s and Sweetwater in a single image. BOOMSAUCE! Beer. Wings. Little G. Can’t make a better ad than that! I’ll be gussying this one up in Photoshop.

09.22.2011 – Darwin’s Blues Jam – I love the Blues Jam, and you know it’s going to be a good night when Truett shows up with Theron and Jonathon to play. Despite the rain, we had a great turnout! I’d like to thank everyone who came out in the rain to support us and we hope it was well worth it!
