Re: “Ninety Miles with Stefon Harris, Nicholas Payton & David S├ínchez

Went to the 7pm show which lasted all of an hour. Band was not tight at all and to me sounded like they could crash and burn at any moment. Nic Payton is great even if he was just playing scales. David Sanchez sounded atonal and discordant whenever he played which was not much. Stefon Harris sounded pretty good and looked like he was having a good time. The percussionist and his vocals were almost embarrassing. The bass sounded very muddy and one note like a bad subwoofer which the sound system and mix was more to blame for than the musician. In this small venue I believe they could have pulled off an "unplugged" set and it would have sounded better. Disappointed in the amount of time they played, the sound and the performance.

Re: “Raleigh bad boy no more

I met Bobby thru the Joint as it was over my favorite news stand on Hillsborough St. He had posted a list of records (you remember those don't you) that he was looking for and I had one of them. I think I gave it to him and a friendship was born. As most of us are, Bobby was his own worst enemy but he turned me on to a lot of good music and I turned him on to a lot of "gravy on the fries" dinners at Brothers. After Booby's bust mentioned in the obit, he relocated to the Outer Banks for a while, living in a very small travel trailer painted (by him) to look like a Marlboro cigarette box. I drove down to OBX to see Bobby and camped out next to the Marlboro box. We cooked steaks on a fire and just hung out for a while drinking beer. Good times and that's they way I want to remember him. RIP brother.
