Photos: OldJack on the main stage at 33rd Annual Oktoberfest in Harvard Square

There are few things more awesome than making your way through Harvard Yard while hearing the old soul rock and roll sounds of OldJack hitting you from from Harvard Square. The band performed on the main stage at this year’s 33rd Annual Oktoberfest in Harvard Square.

Now that I’ve got the site rocking a new layout (cheers to the “Sight” theme from WPShower!) I’m inspired to catch up on photos and videos for Sooz TV.

Back in May, I shot video at The Rationales album release party for “The Distance In Between” at the Lizard Lounge. They were joined by old soul rock ‘n’ rollers OldJack. Watch, listen and enjoy! You can become a fan of Sooz TV on Facebook and subscribe to the Sooz TV channel at YouTube.

The Soozle Mix :: Volume 1

summertime cocktail The Soozle

Several years ago I started experimenting with a summertime cocktail called The Soozle. The ingredients varied each year. This past Memorial Day Weekend at OldJack headquarters in Arlington I decided to settle on the final ingredient list: Fresca, bourbon/whiskey, large orange slice and ice.



What’s in The Soozle?

  • 1 tall glass (a beer glass works well)
  • Ice (if it’s a hot day outside, fill glass 3/4 full)
  • 4-5 parts Fresca
  • 1-2 parts bourbon (or whiskey)
  • 1 gratuitously large orange slice squeezed and dropped in

This cocktail does an excellent job sneaking up on you. If you don’t think you can’t taste the bourbon, do not add extra bourbon. After a few cocktails, you’ll be bourbon-ed up just fine.

And like any Sooz Creation™, there is a Facebook page that came to life on Tuesday. Click the like button to join The Soozle posse.

And also like any Sooz Creation™, there is a soundtrack. The Soozle Mix :: Volume 1 includes the cocktail’s house band OldJack plus Lloyd Cole, DJ Champion and more. You can listen to it via the 8tracks player below. Additional volumes of The Soozle Mix will be released throughout the summer.
