Scotty Anderson's CD Release Party

September 19, 2003

Scotty was simply unbelievable at the cd party.  He floored everyone with OBS.

The people on the stage were in awe as he shoved the fiddler to the edge of the cliff. The fiddler, who is awesome himself, must have thought that he could challenge Scotty's ability since OBS is such a hot fiddler's signature song. When Scotty was through dispatching him, he took the song completely over, and blazed into a series of runs and finger styling that was truly unapproachable by anything else that the fiddler might have had. The drummer and rhythm player were so fatigued from trying to keep up with him, that they were telling the harmonica player to get Scotty to end it. Their arms were about to fall off. None of them had ever seen him do his really fast picking like he does at the barn. He did it last night, and I have NEVER seen him do it that smoothly, or that fast and still be able to maintain some melody. 

The crowd was completely captivated as much as the people in the band. Pat Kelly and Dale were left speechless. They thought that they had seen him play before, but he showed them a Scotty that they never knew existed. The one that we see all the time at the barn and other places. A tremendous musical moment in Cincinnati history.

The crowd jumped from their seats for another standing ovation with arms flying.
Scotty loved it.....he didn't want to stop.

The band that Dale put together for that cd and cd party is a great band. It could go on tour right now. The other musicians love playing with Scotty, and would take THIS show to the road in a heartbeat. This production was much better than the Triple Stop party.

I would say about 340 people were there. House was full.
