Marc Cabrera has nothing better to do than watch a lot of movies and television, and listen to a lot of music. Luckily, he has a job that pays him to blog about local and national arts, entertainment and pop culture. He can be reached at email@example.com.
The lovely young ladies of the Sledge Grits Band serve up some proper goodness on this clip, posted by momma Wendy Sledge earlier this week.
My favorite parts, other than Mimi's wonderful singing and Keiko's absolute shredding on the guitar and Kariel's silky smooth bass playing — little Bo-Pah's tiny head barely visible above her drum kit, her curly locks balancing a miniature tiara on top.
Another highlight: the ladie's voice at the end asking "how old is the drummer," and a response from I'm assuming Daddy Sledge “She's 7.”
The girls are going on a pretty ambitious tour of Monterey County Free Libraries, playing three libraries a day over the next two weekends. Check their revamped MySpace page (www.myspace.com/sledgegrits) for all the info.
