Hindsight: Randy Baumann's Thunderbird Ramble (April 4th 2015)

From Randy Jarosz of Sound Scene Express:

Randy Baumann, host of 102.5 WDVE’s morning show had a smile from ear to ear Saturday night, at the Thunderbird Cafe in Lawrenceville. If you were there, you would understand why. Baumann assembled one of the most talented roster of musicians in all of Pittsburgh. Randall Baumann’s Thunderbird Ramble is based off of Levon Helm’s “Midnight Ramble.” Helm’s legendary Ramble was a star studded cast of musicians that would perform at his home and studio known as “The Barn.” Money earned from those shows went toward Helm’s medical expenses from throat cancer.

This isn’t Baumann’s first “Ramble,” and like Helm’s, each setlist is different. Songs from The Band, Neil Young, Grateful Dead, The Kinks and The Rolling Stones were on display this time around. The featured band for the evening was Randy Baumann on keys, Chad Sipes on bass, Danny Rectenwald on mandolin, Robert James on guitar, James Hart on guitar, Skip Sanders on keys and accordion, Ryan Booth on sax, Joe Herndon on trumpet and Joey Waslousky on drums. “Randy is really good at matching up the right type of tunes with the right type of singer, because we’re all different there, which makes the event all that more special,” Says Jay Wiley
