Some gigs are just difficult to write about. There are but so many ways to say, “I came, I saw, I made sound over time.” Unless there is a radical change to the set, some form of commotion in the crowd, a mishap on stage, or guest musicians, many gigs are business as usual.

There was one significant change. For the first time in a long while, Ricky Blues did not play an entire set of Pink Floyd. It has been a little while since we just played two sets of classic rock, blues, and originals. Unless I’m mistaken, it has been at least a year. In a way, that was a sort of homecoming.

Gaetano’s Grill called us at the last minute to do this gig (not literally, but a week or so before). Last minute gigs can go a couple of ways. If you are preparing new material for every show and you don’t know the other band members too well, it can be a little shaky. On the other hand, if you know the other musicians very well, it can be great. Going back to older material was like slipping on comfortable clothing. It feels different, but nice.

Below are some pictures of the evening:
