Wendel Patrick, Saleem & Caleb Stine Late Night

July 11th, 2012 by The Professor

A great night for all. We opened with Caleb Stine, great local songwriter with a deep roots vibe, and killer guitar chops. Caleb was then joined by great local rapper Saleem (without his Music Lovers band), with whom he had created an album of rap/roots music. Then Saleem was joined by local producer/singer/beat wizard Wendel Patrick (aka mild-mannered Professor Kevin Gift) for a round of hip-hop and jazz-infused electronic fun.
