We have seen ABB several times over the last 5 years and have heard and seen Gregg struggle with the vocals. I thought this years Beacon show(opening night) was much improved over the previous shows. Saturday night in A.C. was amazing. He was very comparable to older videos I have seen before he was ill. Great band as well. They did several ABB tunes , some Low Country stuff, older solo stuff and I believe a newer arrangement of Whipping Post. People were dancing in the aisles. He played a lot of guitar as well. With his voice this good, the 2014 Beacon run should be great

My wife and I were there too. Great show. His singing was robust. He was potent! Stood most of the show playing guitar and sounded particularly powerful on "Love Like Kerosene" which is a track from a Scott Sharrard's album Scott Sharrard & The Brickyard Band. Marc Quinones was terrific on percussion and added some depth to the overall sound of the band. I love Bruce Katz though so I was bummed that he's not on this tour but the replacement, whose name I didn't catch, was pretty good. My wife says Katz plays too many notes and she liked this guy better. I like too many notes better lol. Anyway, Gregg was strumming like mad on "Love Like Kerosene" and singing with a tremendous amount of power. It was great to see and hear after some rough patches he's had the last few years. If he really is heading to the studio in December he's going to sound great especially if he uses this band.

Very cool of Gregg to give Scott a nod during his own show. I've seen Scott with Gregg four or five times and he's a really tasty player. I'm not putting him on Jack's level, but his playing somewhat reminds me of Jack Pearson because he never tries to play too much. Instead he puts the right notes in the right places.

That's exactly right. Like Jimmie Vaughan would say, he knows what not to play. And he's so versatile. I must say that Gregg singing "Love Like Kerosene" made it much better than the album version I've heard. I've also seen Scott play with the CKS band and that was a great hour of music too. I don't know where Gregg finds these guys but damn, he has a great band. It shows his ear for players and the respect he gets from fellow musicians that guys this good will go out and play him. Jerry Jemmott & Steve Potts is the rhythm section. that's sick! What a band. 2 old R&B pioneers, tasteful and talented Sharrard, Jay Collins who seems like he can play anything, Marc on percussion this time around and I really miss Bruce Katz (but Not Bruce Katz was pretty good - I really need to learn his name).
