The term supergroup applies to tonight’s headliner, The Word. It’s members include Robert Randolph, John Medeski, and all of the North Mississippi Allstars. Tonight they put on a mostly instrumental performance; if you name your band The Word, the songs don’t have to have any. In an exciting moment, the drummer played a washboard at the front of the stage while Randolph rocked the drums behind him displaying his multi-instrument talent. The night was filled with extended jams that sounded like they were about to end only to ramp up one more time with whirlwind of guitar, drums, bass, and organ. The Word is a fantastic celebration of music which was also enhanced by a simultaneous Cubs play-off victory. Catch The Word on tour now!
