My editor contacted me at the last minute to write a little blurbish story about the Chicago Afrobeat Project, who is currently maintaining a once-monthly residency at the DeKalb club Otto’s.
I interviewed the group’s drummer, Marshall Greenhouse, which was fun. He gave me the scoop on how the band manages (or mismanages) its budget, and the band’s hopes for the future. For the most part I left these juicy details out of the article.
He also said they are very much in need of a trombone player, so, if you are one or know one, give ‘em a call or go to the show tonight and sit in.
