The Rhythm Anchors vs Phil Keaggy

April 6, 2008

Only guys who truly know nothing would be so silly to do something musically on the same night that Phil Keaggy is playing at Bethel University. But hey, what do we know? Well, for all of those who couldn’t get a ticket to see Phil, Jeff Wachter (mandolin) and Bob Martin (guitar) invite you to The Sage Market in Mendota Heights. We don’t do no stink’n blazing fast solos, awesome and complex chord progressions or loops with all the electronic gizmos that Phil uses. On the contrary, we’ll play various contemporary and jazz standards, attempt some Carlos Jobim songs, probably run acoustic blues aground, and if the mood seems just right, i.e. no one paying attention, maybe there’ll even be an Irish jig.

When: Saturday, April 12th

Time: 7-10pm

Location: The Sage Market
730 Main Street (Hwy 110 & Dodd Road)
Mendota Heights

Please call 651.452.7000 or check out the Sage Market’s web site for more information: http://thesagemarket.us/index2.html

Top Ten Reasons to See the Rhythm Anchors Instead of Phil Keaggy:

10) You can keep your cell phone turned on.

9) More music. We’ll play for three hours. Phil only does two.

8) Fewer notes and much less complexity. It’ll be easier to follow along and anticipate what notes we’ll play next.

7) Better seating. There’s no stink’n “nose-bleed section” at The Sage Market

6) Food is allowed in the venue. In fact, The Sage Market offers lots of goodies (meats to sweets) to eat.

5) You can talk during the performance and no one will care.

4) No need to plan ahead for an intermission to use the restroom. You can just get up and go.

3) We won’t try to sell you anything after the concert

2) We allow audio and videos recording during the performance.

1) You won’t be looking at a bald guy all night long. Well, just keep your eyes towards me.

    So I went to the Sage’s website and they described you guys as “Live Latin and Blues”. What’s up with that? When did you start doing Latin and Blues and what exactly does that sound like?

    Caramba! Nosotros tenemos problemas muy grande!

    Actually, we play some Carlos Jobim tunes. He’s from Brazil. That’s Latin, isn’t it. And we’ll play the songs live. So, we’ll be playing live Latin music. And Jeff will hold his breath until he turns blue. So, to answer your question, I don’t know.

    If I come and see you instead, will you play a Phil Keaggy song for me? I’d feel much better about making that long trip to Inver Grove Heights, MN.

    The Sage Market is located in Mendota Heights – not Inver Grove Heights. But I’ll tell you what – I’ve heard Phil play a few times. In fact, I had the chance to shake his hand so he is, after all, a close personal friend. He does Beatles tunes, you know. Maybe we can play a Beatles tune. Would that suffice?

    That would suffice.
