Were You There?
The Dream Engine
Joe's Pub (NYC)
February 12, 2006
Well, it is the morning after the (latest) night
Specifically, last night, in the immediate
aftermath of the Great Blizzard of 2006, the NEW DREAM ENGINE made
its debut at Joe's Pub in NYC. In spite of the ice, snow, cold,
wind, the venue was very full, and those folk who braved the
elements were treated to a great and exciting show.
There were some new songs, some new lyrics, and
the vibe was fresh and alive. This was casual, jeans, tee-shirts,
jackets, and that was what the performers were wearing. You know,
it does NOT matter what they were wearing, they sang like they
meant it. Rob put his own powerful signature on BREAK IT, and WHAT
PART OF MY BODY, and believe me, the room did not need any heating
system after that!!
This is Rob doing the music of Steinman, and doing
it hot and with passion. This is NOT the Robert Evan who captured
us all with an incredible Jekyll and Hyde, and yet it really is.
The voice has matured like a fine wine, deeper and richer, and yet
even more powerful. He easily worked the room with those throaty
notes, and then segued seamlessly into the light and cute SPEAKING
Well, there is not any snow falling right now, but
it is cold and icy underfoot. If you want to warm up in a very
special way, get yourself to Joe's Pub, and hear for yourself what
I heard last night. There is a show tonight, February 12, and then
two in March.
