Shogun Warrior, a monthly staple at NoHo's famed Baked Potato for the last seven years, will be joining forces with Ben Wendel and Nate Wood of Kneebody, on Sunday, October 5th.
Jeff Babko, keyboardist for Shogun, and Jimmy Johnson (Allan Holdsworth, Flim & the BBs), often Shogun's bassist, with John Daversa on trumpet, welcome Ben Wendel (saxophone) and Nate Wood (drums) for what promises to be a very special one-time event.
When our founder Mike Elizondo called to tell me he's stuck working in Detroit," Babko explains, and Toss Panos, our drummer is out with Robben Ford and Toshi (guitarist Yanagi) is in Japan, it presented me with the opportunity for new combinations of guys to play with. I've been a fan of Nate and Ben's, along with Kneebody, for years, and contacted them separately to play. Thankfully they were both into it!"
Shogun Warrior is known for it's fiery, energetic improvisatory funk.
Shogun Warrior will play a combination of some of Babko and Daversa's tunes, along with songs from Miles Davis and the 70's underground band Stone Alliance. Shows are at 9:30 and 11:30.
