"A Bushmaster show featuring the guitar virtuosity of Gary Brown is always exciting. The excitement increases when you know the blues band is filming a DVD. This is the recipe for the exciting Bushmaster show tonight at the Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club. The show is scheduled to start at 7:30. Come watch one of the best blues band in the Mid Atlantic region return to the Washington area where his musical career started..." - Mike Spain, Examiner  (read full article here)

This is how this night of music was anticipated to occur... Yes, the band performed, they had a great night... Yes the people came, danced, had a blast... Yes it was all recorded... The audio came out GREAT, the video not so much...  

So here's to making lemonade... 

This live album captured the sounds, energy, and fun from that night's performance.  Available for digital download only......
