Back where it all began
Thanks to everyone that attended the Barrymore Show on 4/20. It was a fantastic event, raised some money for a good cause, and the members of Baghdad SCUBA Review had a great time being on stage again. We are tracking down video that was taken and hope to have it available soon.
Our next and final performance (for now):
Saturday, 5/19, 10p
2116 Atwood Av
no cover charge
with Electric Spanking (rock & roll featuring members of Baghdad SCUBA Review)
Those familar with the band may remember many years ago when collective musical groups going by "John Schneider & Friends" or "The John Schneider Project" would jam at Mr. Roberts, a seedy dive bar on Madison's eastside. Those jams laid the ground work for what would become Baghdad SCUBA Review. This Madison band would go on to release 2 CD's of all original music (one even nominated for a Madison Area Music Award - Rock Album of the year). Over the course of 6 years BSR would play hundreds of shows around the mid-west including countless festivals (Summerfest, Atwood Summerfest, and Grateful Garcia Gathering to name just a few) and become an important part of the local music scene performing at Madison's most popular venues (i.e. High Noon Saloon, Majestic, Barrymore Theater). Sometimes headlining and other times opening for national touring groups like Lotus, Canned Heat, Jackie Greene, Bob Weir & Ratdog, and JGB featuring Melvin Seals. It is only fitting after all that, Baghdad SCUBA Review will be at Mr. Roberts to play one of the final shows back where it all began.
