CHEF and Gary Clark, Jr.

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.
