I know DRKWV’s music will not appeal to everyone, but if you like avant-garde jazz and funk or if you merely love extremely good musicians, you’ll find this project interesting at the very least.
As soon as I saw that Eric Bibb would perform at Regattabar, I made sure I would be in the audience. Eric lives in Finland and does not tour the United States frequently, which made this a relatively rare appearance.
I first saw Eric perform a couple of years ago when he toured with Habib Koité, one of my favorite Malian musicians; I was familiar with Eric in name only prior to that show, but his performance convinced me to put him on my radar.
Sturgill was nominated for a Grammy this year, but perhaps more importantly his 2014 album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, deservedly appeared on many reviewers’ top ten lists of 2014.
The Mavericks cured whatever ailed the audience at The Wilbur Theatre last week! Most of you know how the Boston area is suffering this winter; seeing live music is helping to keep me – and many others – sane and The Mavericks helped immeasurably!
Those of you who have been reading my posts regularly know how much I love this band; I have seen them ‘only’ four times and I think this was the best of them! The Mavericks were on fire Thursday night!
Being able to see Buckwheat Zydeco at Regattabar proved to be an incredibly welcome relief from the mountains of snow in the Boston area that are deeply affecting people’s moods (mine included). The doctor could not have ordered anything better!
Buckwheat, born Stanley Dural, Jr., has been a fixture on the zydeco scene for many years, but I had not seen him live for about ten years so I was overdue!
Walking with the aid of a cane, Leon took the stage to a standing ovation. Graciously acknowledging the love we showed him, he sat at his grand piano and played his heart out for the next nearly two hours.
