Mar 3, 2018 – Rochester, NY – Abilene Bar & Lounge
This was a last-minute booking… There was a date open… And Danny.. The amazing host of the Abilene invited us to stop by .. we are so glad we did!!!
This turned out to be one of my all time favorite venues !!!! I loved playing here and for these folks.. my cohort Tony Mercadante. playing bass and singing was amazing tonight.. it felt like we were all a bunch of friends just enjoying the night together it was that special kind of vibe.
We did two sets… And it was just an amazing spontaneous feeling with the audience.. some of my favorite stories and loose moments
We played lots of Last Chance in the early 70s songs from Warner Bros.
And we played lots of our new album from Fix Your Words.. and some of the hits .. with the stories of how they were written … some of the songs from other recent albums .. this was just an amazing audience to play for from start to finish.. told some stories never told before that you only could do that around friends
I love singing the song for the prisoners.. ending with the song for the refugees and all in between
This was just a magic night… Thanks Danny for having us hope to come back many times
