Southside Johnny

Just back from seeing a concert by Southside Johnny and the Asbury Dukes. Not a bad evening at all. It was at the Hanover Theater in Worcester,MA, which is only a 10 minute drive from our home (pretty handy). The theater was very nice too, apparently just recently refurbished (

I enjoyed the concert, even though I had never heard of any of their songs (Tony is the fan not me). What a strange man the lead singer (presumably Johnny?) is! All arms and legs waving about in all directions. But he has an interesting gravelly voice that suits the type of music they favor; bluesy rock n'roll with lots of heavy brass (Saxaphone, trombone and trumpet).

One annoying thing (there's always one) was the guy sitting behind me. He had one of those echoing claps that hurt your eardrums, and he insisted on clapping along to all the songs. It nearly drove me mad...CLAP, CLAP, clap-clap, CLAP. AAAARRRGGGHHH!!
