Action Shots from the Pour House Family Jam

It seems like casual and amicable Pour House Family Jams have turned into a seasonal series of on-stage get-togethers between some of the most versatile and proficient Charleston rock, funk, jazz, and soul players on the jammy side of the circuit.

Last night (Aug. 28), nearly two dozen local players came together for several dynamic sets of old-school funk, weird rock (the stretched-out rendition of Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer” was a nice touch), and various other sonic explorations. The colorful showcase of local talent ain’t bad at all for a free-admission show.

The core lineup throughout most of the night featured Mike Quinn on sax and vocals, Oliver Goldstein on electric bass, Trey Cooper on keys, Jonathan Peace and Stratton Moore drums, and Tom Leonczyk  and Wallace Mullinax on electric guitars. Members of the Reckoning, Super Deluxe, WADATA, Josh Roberts and the Hinges, and other combos took part as well.
