This show is the Mood Docs first gig outside of Jack's Party Pad in Point Richmond. Cafe Van Kleef is a really warm and special room in downtown Oakland. It was a great experience to play there. The decor and atmosphere is unforgetable as well as its owner Peter Van Kleef. You can hear him ringing his famous bell occaisonally throughout the show.
The music flowed like the shots from Peter Van Kleef's own hand. A medley of bell ringing, chord strumming and tequilla tastes just as sweet the next morning... until you realize that you slept in the bathtub.
Hella props to Drummy Jayme A, who played a great show despite having a raging case of the flu!

This was a dreamy show! All things came together to create a warm and energetic mood--I was especially impressed by the vocals since the last time I saw the group it was primarily instrumental. The band had a great stage presence and, dare I say, "vibe", that radiated outward and kept the crowd engaged. I really want to see you all again at this venue. Looking forward to future shows.

Great show! Polished, playful and profound, music to contemplate life.
And the venue could not match the Doc's musical mood better!
Hope to see you there again soon.
