Mavis Staples Live On Jon Stewart- Bassist Jeff Turmes Rocks Couch.

Have you heard the new Mavis Staples single "I Like The Things About Me" yet? The song freaking rules! Like her last Grammy Award winning album "You Are Not Alone", her brand new record "One True Vine" was produced by Wilco song leader Jeff Tweedy. Anyway we were watching her performance on Jon Stewart last night when we noticed bass player Jeff Turmes was wearing his Black & White Racer X Guitar Strap.

Dude that strap seems to have been getting a lot of use by Jeff the last couple years. We originally covered him live on The Colbert Report him wearing this strap here in our blog back in 2010. Jeff is a really cool and really busy guy, who, in addition to playing with Mavis Staples and releasing his own work, has played alongside the likes of Tom Waits, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Canned Heat and Koko Taylor.
