Great review Leilani! Your Professor Nutbutter donor Steve.
This Gatsby LP is really strong. I dig it, too.
"Not as big." I see what you did there. And I like it.
So very, very well said! This was one of the best shows I have ever seen. I was introduced to his music back in 2002, and I am one of the many "Devotee's" who knows so many background stories about his songs. He is an amazing entertainer and he never fails to bring goosebumps to my skin when he plays the song, "The Luckiest". I feel truly lucky to have made it to this show and would see the orchestra and Ben play a hundred times over again.
It was an amazing concert for sure. This is the second of his I have been to in the past 10 years and he is always amazing.
i'd say Rage Against The Machine were pretty good at the ol' hybrid tho
Oh wait a minute. I was wrong. He's been out of town for one of the five long years and is "thinking about starting a tape label." I've never heard of him either.
We were disappointed that they didn't play "The Neighbor's Song."
You´ve never heard oh him? He´s obviously an intricate part of tampa' s noise scene. He´s been laboring at it for almost FIVE long years. Thank God he's stuck it out and help create a highly prolific, creative, and artistic environment.
Sorry...that was my error. I didn't know the band had ever played here before. It is strange, as the comment above states, since Rachael Price mentioned how suprised the band was at Saturday night's turnout since they'd "never made it down to Florida before". Maybe the cold weather threw her off?! In any case, sorry for my goof.
You're right. Apologies for the error.
Really? That's odd. The lead singer said two or three times on Saturday night that they'd never been here before and that they'd be sure to come back?
This wasn't their maiden voyage to the Tampa Bay area. Lake Street Dive played a very impressive set Sunday at the 2013 Clearwater Jazz Holiday.
Never heard of him.
Music lineup issues aside, what great photos and coverage. Kudos to Kimberly DeFalco and Leilani Polk for this intimate and evocative look at a Clearwater tradition.
i completely agree the costume contest was rigged no food n bathroom 40$ for me n my husband to stand in a hole in front of a stage didnt stick around left ybor city 30 minutes later never going back there
A bit strange to have Terrence Simian and then Marsha Ball open for Dr. John on Saturday night.
Terrence performed Iko Iko, which IS Dr. John's most well known song.
And to have Marcha Ball, a New Orleans style piano player open up right before THE New Orleans style piano player is just poor judgement.
Everyone sounded great, but the lineup could have been thought out a little better. It kind of diluted the style and evening.
And yes, to echo the previous commenters, jazz at the jazz fest was severely lacking.
"Our Music Selection Committee works tirelessly as we work to stay current. "
Work harder...or better yet, call me. Let's get "Jazz" back in the festival.
Just not much JAZZ at the "Jazz festival". Weather was amazing of course. Shame.
Fubar isn't in Ybor city. Hopefully everyone knows that.
