Do you know the Asylum Street Spankers? I used to be in a band with their guitarist.

Yes the Asylum Street Spankers..."jug, ragtime type early american" music..
with Guy Forsyth....he is no longer in band...is that the guitarist?

I used spend many nights at Antones at the original 6th Street location....I saw Stevie Vaughan sitting in with Albert King....and thinking, hey he is stealing all his licks! I have lots of photos from Antones....if you are on Facebook, be my friend and check them out in my photo albums:

No, not Guy. Nevada Newman is their current guitarist. He left DC (and the band we were in, The Resonators) about 7 years ago to join the Spankers.

I just sent you a FB friend request.
