I had a lot of fun hanging out and seeing a couple of my former band mates play with “Cherry Cherry” at the Taste of Tacoma this past Friday. “Cherry Cherry” is one of the best Neil Diamond tribute bands in the region. Also there was another band I had the chance to check out and they are called 3D. I had the opportunity to meet their talented and charismatic guitarist. Herman Brown. Herman has been doing his thing in and around the region for several years. He recently contributed his talent to the award winning film Wheedle’s Groove.
The film covers the funk an R&B scene in Seattle from 1965 to 1975. Until I had met Herman, I had not heard of the film but I am now interested in checking the film out. Moreover, I am going to be interviewing Mr. Brown for an upcoming episode of SMI Radio in August. He and his band will be doing a big show for Bumbershoot and we will be there to cover the show as well.
