The Robinson Caruso Organization re-organizes

If the last time you saw Robinson Caruso's ten-piece juggernaut play old-school soul & r&b, you saw me play with them, then, fella, you've missed out. While I was busy learning and regurgitating civil engineering, the Organization was busy doing more shows. One of them, outside on the Metrodome plaza the morning of the Vikings-Lions game in November (we play Motown songs, get it?), was a double-long set featuring all kinds of new (to the band) tunes.

Well, the RCO is back, and I'm back with them, and we've got two shows in the span of one week. Great googaly moogaly! No more of this one-show-a-month nonsense. We've got new (to me) original songs written by James Rone Robinson Caruso himself, and more classics from the likes of the Jackson 5, the Supremes, and Al Green.

Maybe you heard about the passing of Hi Records producer Willie Mitchell last week and want to pay tribute. BAMF! We're playing Love & Happiness. Maybe you want to buy a Robinson Caruso t-shirt. SNIKT! There will be those, there, too. Maybe you wanna do The Kangaroo. ONOMATOPOEIA! Now's your chance.

Two. Shows. TWO SHOWS!

Yeah, that last comment is totally spam, but I'm giving it a pass for adding the flavor of Kanji to my blog. Thanks, spammer!
