Egypt was a legendary DC area band from the 90's. They reunited last Friday for a Sold Out show at Jammin Java. They certainly lived up to their reputation as a world-class live band! Our buddy Daniel Glass was there to capture the action. Check out more of Daniel photos at dgphotoblog.com.
One would think Eddy Van Halen himself made an appearance last night at Jammin Java as the boys from Egypt lit the place up. As a Northern Va boy myself I had heard of Egypt in my youth but never made the opportunity to see them.
Its never too late to enjoy an Egypt power performance.
Friend Pat McGee who always speaks highly of this group as they were very influential to he and encouraged him on his own musical path, recommended that I go check them out. What a performance! From the moment they took the stage I could tell I was in for a long night of power rock. It took me back a few years. Many “old man” jokes ensued during the night, i.e. the Egypt Geritol Tour, but it was clear they had not lost a lick of the high energy performance they are know for giving.
If you have the opportunity and you love their music, you’ll love the show more. Pull the trigger and go.
Egypt is Joe Lawlor (guitar), Andy Waldeck (bass), Jeff Brodnax (vocals), Kevin Murphy (drums).
