Live at the Highball

Jomo and the Possum Posse

The band from Guy On A Buffalo made a live album and it's excellent.

I met Jomo And The Possum Posse when they hired me to help them set up a PA for a private party. I couldn’t stick around to run sound the whole gig, as I had to get on to my own, but I was so thoroughly impressed with the sound check performances that I suggested we do a live album. At the time, I had never heard of “Guy On A Buffalo.” I had played several shows at The HIghball in Austin, TX with The Jazz Destroyers as it was a regular gig for us, so when Jomo suggested that we record there, I was more than happy to drag out my cameras and call in Brenda Hernandez to run an additional camera for me and snap some photos for the cover. I hadn’t recorded any of the shows with my guys at this venue, but I was pleased to find out that multitrack recording was available and Dylan Jones was kind enough to deal with the long transfer times to get us the files. So, we were able to get an album that sounds as good as the DVD looks. Jes Clifford and Tony Rincon both will keep me practicing for many years with their deep vocabularies and excellent performances on guitar. Chris Steakhouse’s drumming is of particular note as the time is rock solid and never overt. Brian Wolfe’s banter with Jomo throughout is understated and even funnier through each listen. He also happens to play a mean upright bass. Normally, I take care of the audio engineering details but Jomo Edwards wanted to handle the mix, and he did a tremendous job, making for a very headache-free mastering session. I want to extend a big thank you to everyone involved and all of the sweat poured into both the show and putting together this package for you to enjoy. Thank you for purchasing this and supporting musicians that really, truly deserve your support. Whether you’re already aware of these huge hits from YouTube, or if you’re just finding out about Jomo and the Possum Posse now, this album captures the essence of the live show, documenting a moment in time for us all to enjoy. I hope you enjoy this album as much as we enjoyed making it for you.
