The Big Machete debuts at The Berkeley Cafe.

Several of my close friends who are all very talented musicians collaborated on a project that came to be known as The Big Machete. Patrick Walsh, Jamie and Lynda Dawson from Kickin Grass brought in Kris Walz (who played in The Brothers Grim with Jamie) and Terry Ayers who came from Loose Canon and The Dufftones (an old school funk band and 50s-60s do wop band respectively).
As you can see this is a variety of musical backgrounds that has melded together all bringing something unique to the table.
The Big Machete was revealed to the public at the Shadow Benefit held at The Berkeley Cafe March 7th.
The band is relatively new but have been putting in their time in order to be ready for this show and that was evident in their performance. They did a couple of obscure covers as well as a few original numbers Lynda had put together. The music and band members gelled together nicely. As I looked out to the crowd I would hazard a guess that everyone would agree with me. I was impressed on what my friends were able to pull together and in such a short time. I look forward to seeing them again real soon, nice work you all.
