Ajeva, Dionysus, The Reality at Cage Brewing: PHOTO/VIDEO GALLERY

Ajeva headlined a big show at Cage Brewing in St. Petersburg May 27, and photographer Chuck Smalling of Funk Eye Media was there to capture all of it.

Apparently not all. His photographs of The Reality, who opened the show, disappeared. Fortunately, he also shot video of their set, and we are happy to present that here.

Excellent jazz funk fusion quartet from Dionysus from Gainesville made their second Bay area appearance in two months, and you can count on them being back!

There was lots of cross-pollination and a host of guest sit-ins as well!
