JAMSGIVING – November 18-19, 2016 – Paul’s Tavern in Lake Como, NJ.


Peak formed around the core rhythm section of Dale Paddyfote (drums) and Eric Thachuk (bass). Paddyfote provides the pulse of the group, as well as adding his amazing singing voice to the rich vocal harmonies. Thachuk, new to NY via Boston and Toronto, lays down the foundation for the ongoing dance party and is an elegant improviser, shaping the jams as they go. Filling out all the rest is the soulful organist Otis Williams on keys. Williams was brought up in the gospel tradition, like Paddyfote, and is a master of his instrument. His use of foot pedals is unique, and this is his first featured role playing psychedelic improvised rock, so as Hilliard says, we’re about to “unleash the beast.”
