JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2014 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez at Rochester International Jazz Festival

Most notable for her beehive, Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez did a good job of rockin' the tent at Abilene. Ohlman's banter reminded us of Cheryl Laurro from Lilly's Buffet and the band had a bit of Springsteen in their arrangements. They couldn't miss with "Take Me To The River" and finished with a Bo Diddley beat song that had something to do with Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, some solid touchstones.
