October 11, 2006………As usual, you never know who will show up at the Cabo Wabo, and tonight didn’t disappoint.  A surprise performance by none other than Michael Anthony, Vinnie Paul & Paul Phillips (former guitarist with Puddle of Mudd).  The guys made an October 11th super group and not only performed the Led Zeppelin classic “Rock & Roll”, but started pulling members of Sammy’s touring crew to jam on stage with them.  If you were there you will never forget Michael & Sammy’s guitar tech Kevin Dugan singing “Born to Be Wild”……..You never know what will come next at the Cabo Wabo.

October 12, 2006…….with Michael Anthony in town, that can only mean one thing…..”Los Tres Gusanos”, yes the original Cabo Wabo house band opened the evening off in typical fashion…..later, adding Vic Johnson to relive this summers hottest ticket “The Other Half”……Vinnie Paul (or as Sammy Calls him the Cowboy, Heavy Metal Surfer dude) joined in on the action on Runnin’ with the Devil & Poundcake……..

Redhead Report 10/5/06


Sammy’s new saying is “When you come down to Cabo, choose your favorite time of day, set your watch and throw out the battery”.  That has never been more evident than Thursday October 5th…….So you think Cabo Wabo is only booming in the evening….well today the club was invaded by a combination of a “Blues Cruise” and Red Heads for across the world.  The Blues Cruise is a fan friendly cruise for fans of all types of blues music.  The club was rockin at full capacity at 1pm with the likes of Smokin’ Joe Kubek and friends and headlining the event was the “Original Low Riders” (they are made up of the original members of War).  The Low Riders brought the house down with their hits “Low Rider”, “Cisco Kidd” and “Why Can’t We Be Friends” to name a few.  So when you are in town, day or night drop on by, you NEVER know who may show up. 


Redhead Report 10/6/06 

The bash is officially off and running.  Sammy and the Wabos played a killer set that was selected by the band members.  After each song Sammy went to each band member and let them pick the set.  Sammy created a set list that was eight feet long, including all the songs he and the band know, so he promised to play them all before the bash is over……Here is the set list from Friday!

Red head Report 10/7/06

Day two did not disappoint, with all the new additions to the club including a new building, expanded wabotique, new menu at the Wabo Snack and additional sound, lighting and décor the Wabos built a new set list of there own.  Sticking with his promise to tackle the eight foot set list, Sammy and the band selected their favorites and came up with another winner.  Highlights included a killer dueling drum jam during Red between David Lauser and John “JD Rocks” Douglas……Here is the set list from Saturday…..Rumor has it Vinnie Paul, Michael Anthony and others are on the way……
