Last year, I saw Mike and Eric at two of their four Regattabar shows and they were my top shows of 2013. When they announced this tour in support of their collaborative album, ‘Eclectic’, I knew I would see at least one of the shows in the Boston area. I was extremely lucky to be able to see their shows at both The Wilbur Theatre and Tupelo Music Hall! (Note there is one Boston-area show remaining and it is not sold out yet – Tuesday, November 18th at The Narrows Center for the Arts.)
I presumed Murali played jazz. Wrong! Murali is just as talented as his father, but in the blues and soul music genres.
This was an evening with a first for me – this benefit show by Jann Klose was held in the Heald & Chiampa funeral home! Understand that the funeral home is the Sumner House, a historic structure, so it isn’t that difficult to comprehend that it would be a terrific setting for an acoustic concert.
The house is gorgeous with the original part built in 1797. I overheard someone say that the house is on the Underground Railroad (that person was taken to see the boarded-up entrance to it). Read the rest of this entry
Larkin Poe is Atlanta-based sisters Megan Lovell and Rebecca Lovell. The band is named for an ancestor of theirs who was a cousin of Edgar Allen Poe. Creativity definitely runs in their family!
I saw the band perform last year during their ‘Thick as a Brick and Thick as a Brick 2′ tour and was interested to see if my perception of Ian changed after interviewing him.
