This Show Did Not Excite Me
Some of you have asked what I would do if I attended I show that I did not like. Now you have your answer!
I was dragged (not quite kicking and screaming) to see G. Love and Special Sauce at House of Blues last week. The person who was supposed to go was stuck in Georgia because of the snow/ice storm and we did not want to waste a ticket. Being extremely open-minded about music, I hoped that this show would surprise me.
Unfortunately, it did not. I will not comment on the quality of the music because I don’t feel that I can be objective. If I had enjoyed the music, I would be in a position to do that.
To me, all of G. Love’s songs sounded the same. He is a good guitarist. The last song we heard before leaving early (to attend another show) was bluesy and highlighted his talent.
I thought it was unusual that he sat while playing the guitar until the last song we heard before leaving.
Opening the show was Kristy Lee, who I liked quite a bit. There were many people in the crowd who knew her music, but I was not one of them.
She looks like a hip-hop artist, but she is a soul singer from Alabama. She plays both the acoustic and lap steel guitars.
At one point, she stood in front of her (chick) drummer who played the guitar with her drum sticks.
Kristy Lee redeemed the show for me. I’m glad I saw her and would enjoy seeing her again in a smaller venue.
