Imaginary Band: Are You With Me, Dr. Wu?

34
I have a lot of imaginary bands, but only one real band . . . the Doctor Wu Rock & Soul Review, spreading classic Stax / Motown soul to the people of downstate Illinois since 1993. I left the band in 2000 and the whole thing's been on hiatus for five or six years, with periodic one-off revivals.

Aaaand then my old trumpet player got the cancer a few months back, and I decided to get the band back together for a benefit gig, which is happening January 26 at Brian's Place in Mattoon.

Fifteen musicians, give or take, including a six-piece horn section. It will be glorious, or a train wreck, or both.
