Adam Ezra Group

January 2 2015

The Sinclair, Cambridge MA

 

The show was a definitive show, one in which the band defined exactly who they are at this moment. Included in the set list that night was a long list of originals including Miss Hallelujah, Takin Off, Devil’s Side, and more. There were also cover songs including familiar covers for their audience like Led Zep’s Good Times Bad Times and John Denver’s Country Roads. But there were surprises too including a new one for me, Bob Dylan’s Like a Rolling Stone. It was a pleasant take on a classic, and doused in the first that is the Adam Ezra Group.

String Cheese Incident

The Capital Theater Port Chester NY

November 11 and 12, 2014

 

We are happy to present the first ever contribution from Keith Gaskin! Keith is a festival veteran, and often works in operations, spending time both in front of and behind the scene. He traveled through CT, braved the traffic and got to see one of his favorite bands for a two night stand, and took in a little late night action from Pink Talking Fish to boot!

Renaissance

Infinity Hall, Hartford, CT

Here’s what I know about Renaissance: They are a progressive rock band, but one that is different within a whole genre of ‘different.’ They have a fantastic female singer, and they were early in the developing music scene to have a woman-fronted band. They have always been respected; I’ve never heard anyone respond as they might with other prog “monsters.” “

The Golden Gate Wingmen

November 5 2014 Terrapin Crossroads

San Rafael CA

 

Show announcement leads to plane ticket, cross country sojourn and a pilgrimage to see the birth of an all star band, the Golden Gate Wingmen. It is wholly appropriate that the first show is at the mecca of improvisational bohemian music just north of San Francisco. The wizards come out from behind their curtains to come together and showcase their talents in a project both refreshingly original and derived from the collective shared experience of the musicians and their fans.

This is our first ever conjoined review- the first set is provided by Stephanie Janicedottir, and the second set review is provided by Jimm O’D. The show was intimate, acoustic, and personal, a rare treat for those who love and follow the live performance stylings of Adam Ezra.

Starting with: “Somebody Calling,” the 1977 funk opener from In City Dreams; then, “thank you very much, thank yooou!” the now-familiar call as heard on every one of Robin Trower’s live albums released in the last couple of decades. Time was when all we had was the 1975 LP, barely forty minutes long. Next, a couple of latter-day numbers and then, “thank you very much, thank yooou!”

Impact Hub, Boston

Alec Hutson makes beautiful music. Armed at present with guitar, ukelele, saxophone, foot-cymbal and loop device plus, one supposes, a few pre-recorded rhythms and percussion patterns (for starters), he produces lovely compositions on the spot. To be sure, these are “mash-ups” (the artist’s term, albeit applied differently) of improvisation and written material. Laying sax over looped guitar, then ‘multi-tracking’ the sax, this gets pretty elaborate.

Davis Square Theater, Somerville, MA

 

The Davis Square theater is an intimate place to see a show. And since you could never see Sir Paul or any of his band mates in such intimate confines, it was a rare treat for reviewer Jimm O’D to see AfterFab, a tribute band devoted to recreating the solo works of the Beatles members!
