Oteil & Friends: Live at LOCKN’ (2019)
On August 24th, Oteil & Friends took the stage at the LOCKN’ festival. The band, fronted by Oteil Burbridge, also included Duane Betts, Melvin Seals, Eric Krasno, Neal Casal, Jay Lane, Jen Hartswick, Nat Cressman, Alfreda Gerald, and Lamar Williams Jr.
Sadly, Casal passed away two days after this performance. Oteil shared this on his Facebook page: “It’s so hard for me to process that this was us on Saturday. I just started to really get to know Neal and he was one of those people that I felt such genuine warmth from. My heart goes out to his family, friends and brothers of the road. This hurts so terribly much. I was looking forward to seeing that smile so many more times. Rest easy, Neal Casal.”
