Notes:
This was the 3rd year for this project. In 2014 it was billed as Will Bernard’s Blue Plate Review and occurred on Saturday of first weekend with Eric Kalb on drums. In 2015 it was billed as Will Bernard’s Blue Plate Special, on Thursday night, and cemented the lineup with Terence Higgins on drums. In 2016 it was Monday night and it was clear that Medeski was the leader of this group. They are going to record an album soon and start a kickstarter campaign. They also played a few European gigs in July of 2016.
