Billy Gibbons sat in with The Cringe at Rachael Ray's Feedback Party at Stubb's just after lunchtime for a cover of Elmore James' blues standard "Dust My Broom." The ZZ Top guitarist also mentioned his BFG hot sauce line, of which he had a bottle in his back pocket.
Rachael Ray's husband John fronts the Cringe and the TV host introduced the band before jumping into the photo pit at the venue with the rest of the photogs to take some pictures of her own of her hubby's band.
The annual party also had Wanda Jackson, Bob Schneider, Eli "Paperboy" Reed, Das Racist, and The Bravery on the bill. Free food curated by Ray was in high demand, with the feeding line almost spanning across the venue.
