    Quote

    As with their debut, “More Meat” is an incredibly consistent listen from front to back, shifting gears from smooth jazz, funk, and rock – a recipe for some truly tasty modern fusion.

  • Caught the show last night,,, sitting at the bar right next to Jeff Kollman....all were in fine form. The Meatbats have some really great songs, too, great melodies and there was one incredible fast song with Jeff and Ed playing the complicated riff together. Must get their CDs. Got to thank Chad for sitting in with us in July and he remembered and thanked me. Unfortunately Justin forgot my food order so I drank one beer, put 6 bucks on the bar and left after the first set (was only staying for one set anyway). Funny I was there a couple of years ago and there were two uneaten plates at the bar. He seemed mystified (as was I) as to why the people left. If the bar food orders come 90 mins later, the people have gone! Dumb. (Not mad about it) :claphands :bow:
