Jack's Debut at Sal's Speakeasy

#276 / Video Extra

The Flood had another fun Saturday night at Sal’s Speakeasy in Ashland, Ky., our first in a couple of months. It was a grand time, being back in one of our favorite venues. Brother Sam couldn’t make the gig — he and Joan are on the road right now — but we still had four on the floor.

It was Jack Nuckols’ first time to join us on the bandstand. It also was our introduction to Jack’s new drum kit. Until now he’s been rocking it on the Bowen House’s bongos, but he arrived at last night’s show with his newest acquisitions: snare, hi-hat and brushes!

While that jazzed us and the crowd considerably, Jack also was still ready, willing and able to switch back to those ragtime spoons from time to time, whenever one of our old jug band tunes rolled around, as you can see below:

Jack is front and center with Randy, Danny and Charlie here in Pamela Bowen’s videos, featuring a trio of tunes from the night: “Make Me a Pallet on Your Floor,” “Misty” and, a Flood original,“These Boys.”
