So I haven’t written in a while…. I guess I was in need of a little inspiration. Things have come up, but for some reason, I haven’t grabbed the computer. As you all know, this site is about food and music. If I can combine a movie about food, staring a musician that I love, that’s close enough!
My friend Dan Walker and I were playing some guitar and Gary Clark, Jr. came up in conversation. He said I should check out “Chef”, a movie that came out a few years ago and is currently on Netflix. Gary Clark, Jr. plays a Blues singer from Austin, TX (which he is) and it’s all about a chef who finds his way opening a food truck, travels from Miami to LA and bonds with his son. How could I not love that? Food, Family and the Blues? Not a bad combo.
I’ve seen Gary Clark, Jr. twice live and he’s nothing short of amazing. I’ll be seeing him later this summer at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom. I can’t wait! Here’s a clip from his live record, and the trailer from the movie.
Travis County took my picture…. No, I didn’t smile
Told me I was gonna be here, for a pretty long while
Oh, c’mon! Jon Favreau, Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, Robert Downey, Jr, John Leguizamo, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, and my main man, Gary Clark, Jr.?
Anyway, I had a fun night watching the movie and listening to music. Hope you enjoyed it.
