Last weekend, the Joe Marcinek Band was joined by Hammond B3 master Ike Stubblefield and drummer Alvin Ford Jr. of Dumpstaphunk and Pretty Lights fame for a run of three shows. This afternoon, JamBase is pleased to premiere official audio of the group’s version of the Booker T. & The M.G.’s classic “Green Onions” from this past Saturday night at Good Ol Days in Cummings, Georgia.
The run started for the group on Thursday night in Greenville, South Carolina before they headed to Asheville for a Christmas Jam Eve performance at the Asheville Music Hall. Marcinek and his crew were joined by special guests Danny Louis, Eric Krasno, Duane Trucks and Terence Higgins in Asheville, as the guitarist took advantage of all the musicians who were in town.
In the middle of the group’s first set in Georgia, Ike called for “Green Onions” out of nowhere and then the organ wiz proceeded to bring the house down. “After years of pushing this all-star super jam with a rotating cast things really came together. Asheville was an amazing night where I witnessed my dreams coming true on stage before my eyes. Right after singing the second verse of ‘Fire on the Mountain,’ Eric Krasno comes on stage and I hand him my guitar. It was a surreal moment to say the least. So on Saturday night in Georgia we were all just so stoked from the night before. The show just felt so open and free and then Ike calls for ‘Green Onions’ and it was lift off!” Marcinek tells JamBase.
