Maniacal Mondays: The John Butler Trio
I know-Mondays suck. I have decided to counter the effects of post-weekend comedown with a new feature on That’s Funky Awesome called Maniacal Mondays. Each week I’ll feature a totally bitchin’ live performance from bands or artists who don’t mind leaving it all onstage. Consider it a wee pick-me-up to help you energize yourself for the next seven days.
I’m pleased as punch to kick Maniacal Mondays off with The John Butler Trio, a band I had the fortune to see in Toronto a couple of years ago. If you haven’t heard Butler before, as soon as you’re done watching this fire up iTunes and download whatever you can find. I recommend his album ‘Grand National’, although you really can’t go wrong with anything he does. On his newest release ‘April Uprising’ he has two new bandmates backing him up, so be sure to check it out!
