Little Memphis Blues Orchestra After Idol Party Schedule

Taylor Hicks’ band, (well hopefully–they auditioned for the suits in LA at The Viper) the Little Memphis Blues Orchestra has been shadowing the Idols tour, playing gigs along the way.  When possible, Taylor and a few of the other Idols have appeared to play a set with the band.  Here’s the schedule for the rest of the tour.  I’ll update the pending dates as soon as I have more information. 

Sep 5 2006 10:30P    Herman’s Hideaway  Denver, CO
Sep 7 2006 9:00P      Galaxy Club  Dallas, TX
Sep 9 2006 10:30P    Engine Room  Houston, TX
Sep 10 2006 10:15P  Antone’s  Austin, TX
Sep 12 2006 10:30P  Pending  Atlanta, GA 
Sep 21 2006 10:30P  Asylum  Portland, ME
Sep 23 2006 9:30P    Pending  New Haven, CT
Sep 24 2006 10:30P  Pending  Wilkes-Barre, PA

Tickets for the Denver show go on sale later today.  And here’s a quote from Ace Young from today’s Rocky Mountain News:

“After the show, there’s gonna be a little party with Taylor Hicks’ band, ” Young says. “We’re gonna be at Herman’s Hideaway and we’re gonna do a jam session. We’re going to be there till they kick us out.”

And who exactly is “we”?

“The whole Rat Pack is going to be there. It’s going to be Taylor, Elliott (Yamin), Bucky (Covington) and myself, ” Young says. “We’re gonna get cleaned up and go right over there after the show and just have a jam session with a five-piece band. It’s gonna be a lot of fun.”

It’s a great show.  I highly recommend it, with or without Taylor.
