LIVE AT THE BAKED POTATO
It’s not every day you get to sit in a room with world-class musicians who’ve played with musical legends like Hans Zimmer, Johnny Cash, Mick Jagger, Elton John, Zappa, Sting, Miles Davis, & Robben Ford, to name a few. It’s also not every evening you get to share a drink, meal & a live performance in a legendary venue in Studio City off Cahuenga Blvd., called the Baked Potato. In fact, only about 50 people this night were fortunate enough to witness Toss Panos (Drums), Curt “Kirkee B” Bisquera (Drums / Percussion), and Satnam Ramgotra (Percussion), who go by the name “Galactic Booty Co.“, come together to create a completely improvised musical conversation with guest musicians, Tina Guo (Cello), Kaveh Rastegar (Bass), & Deron Johnson (Keyboardist).
Sit back, pour yourself a drink and enjoy this 7-part series of The Galactic Booty Co., live at the Baked Potato.
