16 Bit Audience Recording
This was a very differant Lance Lopez show , as alway's some amazing
guitarwork and soul drenched solo's but what makes this so exceptional
is this setlist which is really bluesy to say the least and almost all
covers,from the moment the show started you could tell it was different.
The Robin's Nest is a very intimate club with the band right in your face,
every seat is a good one because your right there close to the action and
when the action started Lance starts the show with a song called "Spend My
Money" with bassist Chris Gibson on vocal's and Chris gets his share of work
at this gig with plenty of opportunities.
Thing's really get cranking with an old standard called "It's My Own Fault" a
song i've never heard Lance play before but he really dug down deep on this one
with a mesmerizing blistering assault on this one that had everyone floored.
Another suprise at this show was "Little Jimmy" Lawroski a 12 year old prodigy
from Point Pleasant N.J. who reminded me of young Eric Steckel who was able to
play so well at such a young age effortlessly and with confidence, he's gonna be
some player as i got to see what he can do at 12 years old and as you will hear
in this recording where he starts off with Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Pride & Joy" to
be followed by Jimi Hendrix "Little Wing", two guitar giants themselves and he
does a really satisfying job tackling those classics, keep your eyes peeled for
this young firecracker in the near future.
The second set was almost only covers except for the last song, some really tasty
blues classics here with another round of songs i've never heard Lance play before,
one that stands out is B.B.King's "I Gotta Move Out Of This Neighborhood" truly a
great tribute to B.B. King here, followed by an almost 40 minute Lance Lopez Original
"My Good Thang" which i tell you was something out of the ordinary here as you can
hear tinges of Carlos Santana and most obvious to me was the Jeff Beck inspired groove
that ended the show, some magnificent guitar playing here folks.
Excellant performance, nice audience recording!
