MyJoogTV Live: Martin Garrish and Lou Castro Live at Jimmy's Seafood Buffet

One of the many benefits when vacationing on Ocracoke Island is the vibrant live music scene. Almost every restaurant hosts live music - regardless of the day of week. There is also a community of musical artists that reside on the island that play several musical styles - rock, bluegrass, country, americana. One of our favorites is Martin Garrish who has been playing on the island for over three decades. In fact, he probably would have had a successful career if he ever decided to relocate to Nashville or Austin - but Ocracoke is his home.

Lou Castro is also an easy musician to find. Along with playing with Garrish, he is a member of several bands: Molasses Creek, Coyote, and the Aaron Caswell Band. And many of you may recall him in his appearance in "Nights In Rodanthe". For me, I will always recall his guitar playing whether its the acoustic Dobro - fortified into a Hawaiian styled guitar - or jumping and walking on rails playing his electric guitar. Don't know if its his Berklee School of Music degree or years of practice; but the guy can play.

Here are several songs from Martin and Lou at  Jimmy's Seafood Buffet:
