Hows come cl is obsessed with touting ben booker as a "Tampa" artist when he didn't even start his band until after he moved away but not before telling everyone that he couldn't wait to get out of Tampa. Granted, he did return briefly to recruit his friends to play in his new band but ultimately, it was to just convince them to move away too.
If Streisand's duets album wins, this would be the first time in the 56 year history of the Grammy Awards (LOL) that the voice of the most ecclectic singer that ever lived is included in an album which wins in a category that is NOT the Gospel one. The voice of Elvis Presley.....
Cant wait to be in attendance!
Thanks to Gabe Echazabal for turning me into a lifelong Elvis fan.
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.
