(I'm not even drunk: the neurotic Jew on the left is me, the neurotic Jew on the right plays in the Disco Biscuits)
As 2005 drew to a close, I had the rather cool opportunity to compile a year end retrospective featuring a number of my favorite artists (and co-workers), which was then sprinkled on Jambands.com throughout January. At times it felt like organizing a really big dinner party, figuring out who to place where and next to whom (‘cause ya know Keller and the Biscuits don’t get along so well). The final installment is now posted at (www.jambands.com/Features/content_2006_02_10.00.phtml) so be sure to venture over to and let me know which party you’d most like to attend.
