Couple of quick Johnny A. vids from last night

Post by bclaire » Sat May 22, 2010 7:40 pm

John did a co-headliner with Savoy Brown last night- great gig! I shot a couple of video clips with my digital camera, audio may not be the greatest since I was all the way back by the soundboard for Krea Gata and at the back bar zoomed in for Brown Sugar. I only got part of Krea Gata but it was good stuff! More audience noise than usual since it's an eating kind of venue, too. People were singing along to Brown Sugar- it was really cool!

Savoy Brown's Kim Simmonds was good too although his Flying V looked huge on him! Here's some pictures from the night overall!

Haha, Wendigo, maker of interwebz friendz. ;)

I dig the playing, it's interesting to watch how much he's doing for so smooth/relaxed a feel. I dig it. Makes me want a vibrato.

Agreed, but I guess a lounge/cafe setting would be quite fitting. One of the most beautiful guitars on the planet though...

Have none of you been checking Billy's links in previous posts? Johnny A. is one of the most talented guitar players on the planet and, of course, he does originals. Them guitars ain't too shabby either :D .

At the end of the JA version of Brown Sugar you can hear a guy near me say "that was better than the original!"
