Spooner came down to play on 4 songs with us last October and we were talking about The Blues Brothers. That is Spooner's piano on Aretha Franklin's "Think"- the diner scene in the movie. He was telling me about the upcoming Five Royales Tribute that Steve was producing. Dylan LeBlanc was on the project but somebody told me that took him off.
