Thought I'd share some pics from the Acoustic Blend concert at the Lexington Civic Center this past Thursday. Aapparently the planets aligned for the busiest day in downtown Lexington's history and there was a meeting or event at every church within a five-block radius (one of the few times I didn't want people to go to church). So while the crowd may not have been large in numbers it was definitely large in spirit. Besides, any time you have people who pay their good money to come hear you play, you can't complain about that one bit.
There were three opening acts and we hit the stage right around 8pm. We played for just under an hour, breezing through eleven songs. We did a few originals but also mixed things up with our standard covers - everything from Dave Matthews to Alicia Keys to Ryan Adams to the Beatles (that's where the "blend" in our name comes from). I'm working on a YouTube clip as well as some audio clips too and will let you know when those are up (thus the "Pt. 1" in the blog title).
Special thanks to Lee Zehmer from nearby First Presbyterian Church for joining us on bass for a few tunes. Also thanks to Terri Lamb for taking the great pictures, and everyone who had a part in putting on this show.
