Default David Bromberg - Last Night

Caught the David Bromberg Quintet at a local venue last night in Port Washington, New York.

About 1/2 the set was electric, mostly blues, the other half was not.

The acoustic set was simply wonderful. A couple of tunes with the acoustic, a mandolin, a fiddle, bass and drums. A couple acappela, a couple solo acoustic.
Martin guitars and Gibson F5 mandolins.

His lead guitar player (I believe Mark Cosgrove) was very impressive.

Great blend of folk blues, Irish fiddle tunes, and rock blues.

Been a fan since the early '70s, and while he - like all of us - has aged, he was still entertaining and able to play in the way that only he can. Played some VERY sweet acoustic slide.

If this tour is coming near you, catch it.
