We went to see Cody Matlock at “Wingstock” at the Wing Cafe in Marietta., with Daniel Harper and Jon Schwenke. The crowd was pretty small , mostly families with kids. I am not sure they knew they were watching two legendary musicians with that incredibly talented young man but the quality of the music was undeniable and it was a great show! Talking to Cody afterward, I was struck once again at what a thoroughly likeable young man he is. As one of the listeners told him while I was standing there, “You’re so bad on stage, man, and so good off it.” And it’s true. He and the band can play funk, soul and blues so amazingly well and still be friendly and fun to talk to. At least Cody and Daniel are, and I’m sure Jon is as well, although I’ve not had an opportunity to talk to him yet.
Friday is Cody’s first Friday night at Blind Willie’s in Atlanta. Go see him so you can say you knew him when when he gets big, like he is going to. and you can see him every Thursda night at Darwin’s in Sandy Springs!
