    Extra, extra from Steve Lukather: "By overwhelming request a 3rd night has been added on Thursday December 1st. Two shows!"  

    Jeff Babko is a very talented multi instrumentalist who is probably most well known for being the keyboardist, musical arranger and composer on "Jimmy Kimmel Live". He tours with Steve Lukather/Larry Carlton, Robben Ford, James Taylor, Martin Short/Steve Martin and Sheryl Crow just to name a few. He even toured Europe with Toto in 2000. He is also part of "Nerve Bundle" where Jeff is joined by Steve Lukather (g,v), Toss Panos (d) and Jorgen Carlsson (b). Nerve Bundle is playing the legendary Baked Potato on December 2nd and 3rd two sets each night. I thought it was a great excuse to talk to Jeff and get an update from him as to what's going on in his musical life and beyond.

    - By Arend, Aug 29, 2016 9:00 AM

    It was very appropriate that Toto was playing in "Music City", Nashville, Tennessee. It was even more appropriate that they were playing at the historic Ryman Auditorium.
