NYCD: The Blog

Tuesday, October 17, 2006


Well, not really. But I didn't think anyone would read a post with the heading "VINCE GILL AT THE NOKIA THEATRE," which is where I was last night.

Here's why:

Saw Vince Gill sing at the Brian Wilson tribute concert a few years back and he blew me away. Never really heard any of his music except for that cheesy duet with Amy Grant.

New 4 CD set coming, good write up in the NYT, Eric Clapton loves him.

My wife is out of town, friend called up out of the blue, Let's go to see Vince Gill."

Done. What a treat! Huge band that featured Big Al Anderson from NRBQ on guitar, Bekka Bramlett on vocals and many others. Two long sets that teetered between Owen Bradley type country & western (think Patsy Cline meets Ray Price) and full blown bluegrass (think Bill Monroe).

There was of course some bluesy numbers that showed off Gill's tasty and underrated (or should I say unknown) guitar playing, as well as some straightforward pop songs thrown in to show us all that Vince Gill can do anything. It all worked!

Most of the material was from this new 4 CD box called "These Days," each disc having a separate theme. It is priced to move at $24.99 and it could be the release of the year.

i don't want to make extra cash but i'm glad you dug vince gill. i think at one time he did play with emmylou so that should give him some stats. he's a great picker with a great voice who gets unfairly lumped in with the more middle of the road country stars. only sorry i didn't get offered a ticket too. but then i did get to see dwight yoakam play for 2 1/2 hours practically non stop (think dwight strumming the next song on acoustic while the band switched guitars and instruments), so i got a pretty good fill of nyc c&w.

I want to make extra cash AND I'm glad you liked Vince Gill. I ordered the set but it hasn't arrive yet, i guess :( Hey,I just wanted to use an emoticon. Wow, Dwight Yoakum was here too? How did I miss these fun concerts?
