"The chinese food was late. The bass was missing. The van broke down. The bass broke one minute before they went on. And then it broke again. The monitors were too low. The second set was played in complete darkness. But the beer? The beer was free. It was a night they’d never forget, if they could only remember it." - VH1 Behind the Music, Barry Badrinath & The ZJ’s 

Here’s some pics from last night’s show at Mystery Lane in Portsmouth, Dominica. The band changes it’s name for every show; last night we were Barry Badrinath & The ZJ’s. In true medical school fashion, we had to perform emergency MacGuyver surgery on both the van and the bass guitar, but in the end we pulled it off and sounded better than we ever have. The highlight was probably “Fat Bottomed Girls” where we all switched instruments with our keyboard player hopping on guitar, our guitarist hopping on bass, our drummer on vocals and me on the drums.
