• Vai & Company were GREAT

    This was a special concert. The legendary Steve Vai put on a show that lived well up to expectations. All musicians with him were excellent, as expected. What was not expected was Steve's incredible showmanship, as well as his amazing interaction and appreciation for the audience. In this relatively small & intimate venue, this concert was really really cool. They played much of his new album, 'The Story of Light,' which is really really good. My only disappointments were 1) not hearing the extraordinarily strong vocalist & opener, Beverly McClellan, sing with him and 2) not being able to hear the extraordinary electric harpist, Deborah Henson-Conant, well enough ... the mix could have been better for her. Personally, I could have done without the limited gimmickry employed, the quality of music just didn't call for them. However, these latter points don't even qualify as negatives. There were only positives here. The concert ROCKED & was one to remember for the rest of my life!
