Went to the Liberty Bell in Nacogdoches for live music Friday night. The band was Jeff Plankenhorn, a lap slide player from Austin. We have seen Jeff a couple of times at the Saxon Pub in Austin. As you may have noticed slide guitar is ind of my thing and this was a great show. His backing band was very good.
Nice electric dobro played standing up. Set up was a modest pedal board with some delay, overdrive and wah-wah. I am a sucker for wah sounds on slide and it does have a precedent going back to the great slide player Earl Hooker but seems like with my usual gigs it don't fit so well. Jeff sounded great and I need to find my own place myself to use these sounds. Looks like amp was a Marshall clone but he did not blow the roof off the place with it.
Check him out. Buy cds, don't listen on Spotify. Support live music.
