Storm warning . . .

Posted: June 24, 2016 in Hear This . . . . !

Listen here to this week’s Cruising with The Commissioner:

Well, it has been a significant week here in the Grand Duchy, but not without plenty of friendly faces to cheer the days and some that we haven’t seen for quite a while, so it wasCruising #216 good to catch up. Whatever the national and international uncertainties, you can be sure that there’s always a warm welcome for one and all when we go Cruising with The Commissioner.

Our giglist has been pretty full this past week, with plenty of great music along the way. But, none of this distracted us from our regular session, rummaging in the Cruising Library in pursuit of some more great rock, soul and real rhythm and blues . . . . and we pulled out some forgotten gems and some favourites too.

Our Girls & Guitars feature, focused on Sarah & The Tall Boys, a band led by singer and guitarist Sarah Potenza. The band started out in Chicago and later moved base to Nashville, where they play a mix of soul, blues and alternative country. Sarah writes most of the songs for the band, including the one we chose from their 2008 debut album, “Shiny & New”.

Well, the sound of the rattling tin were a sad reminder that the sands of time had finally run out for us. So, we found ourselves parking up the Cruise Mobile for another week and rather hoping that you enjoyed our cruising playlist sufficiently to be enticed back again next week. If so, we’ll call by for you, same time, same place next week with the promise of even more rock, soul and real rhythm and blues. So, until the next time we can go Cruising with The Commissioner, . . . have fun
