|Mark Fuentes|For obvious reasons
, a full-blown Sorta
reunion just ain't in the cards. But, tomorrow night at AllGood Cafe, fans of the DOMA-winning
favorite are in for pretty much the next best thing, as four former Sorta members, (and some friends) are slated to share a performance stage once more.
It's all part of the ongoing song-swap series scheduled at the Deep
Ellum eatery, and billed for tomorrow night's event? Former bandmates Trey Johnson
, Danny Balis
and Ward Williams
Until earlier this week, though, there was some question as to whether
Williams, now living in Nashville, would be able to attend. So, as sort
of a backup plan, Johnson, Balis and the venue decided to turn the
night into a "Johnson, Balis and Friends"-type deal. Among those
friends? comedian/singer/songwriter Dave Little, King Bucks keyboardist
Chad Stockslager and, yep, one more fellow Sorta member, Chris Holt.
But even with Williams now back in the mix, the "friends"
remain--meaning that four of the five remaining Sorta members will be
sharing a bill.
(No word yet on if drummer Trey Carmichael or his eventual replacement, Tom Bridwell, will be making an appearance.)
says AllGood owner Mike Snider: "I wouldn't be surprised if the night
ended with them all on stage together doing some Sorta songs."
We'll have to wait and see on that. But, either way, should be quite the treat for the band's many fans.
