Black Bear Combo
I have never seen the Black Bear Combo, even though they are from Chicago and ussually play down the street from me. I have been a terrible recluse lately. I learned of Black Bear Combo from Loach Fillet, who saw them play Bunny & Damien's wedding. He was very ecstatic about them and described them as a gypsy, klezmer beefheart free jazz combo. I scratched my head and searched for their website, which offers many fine example of their work:
They are now a 3 piece and will be playing in New Orleans for Mardi Gras.
