Backstage with Wet Willie
Backstage with Wet Willie at the Bama Theatre in downtown Tuscaloosa, Alabama
Alabama Music Office.com goes to the historic Bama Theatre in downtown Tuscaloosa, Alabama to attend the performances of Wet Willie and Bad Brad & The Sipsey Slims. They played for the Alabama Blues Project Benefit.
Background music: Wet Willie Track 1, Shame, Shame, Shame from Left Coast Live Album
WET WILLIE began as a thrown together blues-rock band during the magical Summer of 1969 "way down in Alabama"...(Mobile, to be precise). The original nucleus of the group that eventually became known as Wet Willie was called Fox. The first "gig" was a booking in Panama City, Florida at a club called the Oddessy, a geodesic dome right on the beach. For those who must have a concept, or reason and meaning behind every occurring work in any medium of art, the only one I can think of was "fun". Raw, hormonal...fun. This video is dedicated to Wet Willie and all who were associated with the band, which continues to perform today around the Southeast.
