Were You There?

Westchester Broadway Theatre Concert
Well, folks, if you were NOT there last night, you
really missed SOMETHING!
OK, audience reaction is subjective, and THAT
being said, I plunge onward, into the fire of reaction to magic.
Even if it were a pure thing, the imagination and the mind boggles
at what we saw, and heard!
Rob sang his heart out, in many songs (22,
actually) we know and love, and some that the audience at large
had not experienced. What Rob did to/with TITM, MOTN, and BHH
cannot be discussed by me without irreparably harming my PC. LAST
WALTZ for DIXIE even reached some Northeners, I am sure.
GETHSEMANE was sung as I have NEVER heard it done before, and I
have heard it MANY times. Not only was the singing awesome, the
emotion, the expression were surreal!
Rob did duets with JT Egan and Brandi Massey from
J&H, and I am not able to be objective and/or rational, but
perhaps you knew that??
I cannot close this report/review without
mentioning Jeremy Roberts and that BAND! Yes, oh yeah, it WAS
ROB'S concert; but manomanoman, the musicians pulsed, roared, and
enhanced what Rob gave us.
Rob himself announced the return date for Jekyll,
October 4; stay tuned for whatever else comes. The NEXT announced
concert is 17 November, in Athens, GA, at Rob's alma mater, UGa.
Boy, if you missed it, did you ever!
