Working Overtime

Bobby Rush blues Fat Possum
Cover-band musicians take it as a compliment when their fans tell them to keep their night job. But the flattery still doesn't inspire the members of Last Call to quit their full-time gigs as a public schoolteacher, commercial-property broker, and CFO of a law firm. After work, the quintet plays AC(?)-rock staples, from the Pretenders to Fiona Apple. But don't expect them to make music for a living. "I now have a successful career unrelated to music and only play gigs once or twice a month," says the band's keyboardist, Keith Chelm, who daylights as a building manager. "I'm enjoying playing now more than I have at any other time in my life." Last Call performs at 9:30 tonight at Rick's Café, 86 North Main Street in Chagrin Falls. Admission is free. Call 440-247-7666 or visit
Sat., Dec. 8, 9:30 p.m., 2007
