r&r diary – That’s What it’s All About – 07.16.13

wwsp @uncommon ground 7.15.13jpgA quiet, hot, muggy Monday night at Uncommon Ground, a nice music room, all wood and brick. Some really great old friends came out to see us. People with whom we have a real affinity. Felt like a homecoming. Opening for us was David Bon and his trio. David is just the most riveting and inspiring performer. His rich baritone voice can knock down walls, and the trio was tight: two acoustic guitars, a bass. They channeled the spirit of Elvis, Neil Diamond, Waylon Jennings and Cypress Hill. They made some classic songs their own. They do songs you’d think maybe can’t be done, and they do them, and they work, no, they completely bowl you over! We followed with our set. We were tight, sharp, connected, we could all really hear each other. Our band is in a great zone at the moment. Under the hot lights, I almost spontaneously combusted, smoke was coming out of my eyes! Afterwards it was all smiles and kind words. There is nothing better than playing for your musical peers and for people you respect and love. People who really listen. I must say, that’s what it’s all about! – Jammer
