Steve Miller with Greg Allman at the Cary Koka Booth Amphitheatre
Well last night was the second and probably last concert I will be able to make this year.
Steve Miller with Gregg Allman opening.
Never been much of a fan of Gregg Allman. Basically just never heard much other than the radio hits for the Allman Brothers. Or what I thought were Allman Brothers' hits.
Midnight Rider, I'm No Angel, and Melissa.
He played these and more. More R&B than Rock but still easy to listen to and from the look of most of the ladies there easy to 'attempt' to dance to.
As the radio station 96Rock was on hand with 8 copies of his latest album and I won one, we will have to see if I come to like the sound or not. :-)
Steve Miller Band
What more can I say? Right up there with Boston in my books.
Second of his concerts I have been to. The last was 27Oct2008
The guy can still play and sing although for this concert he seemed to let Sonny Charles sing more than a few songs and quite a lot in the ones that he was 'lead' for. They seem to have a close vocal match and switched of several times.
Steve can still play the guitar though. He may not be able to do the things that Eddie Van Halen can but he can make the guitar sing.
As you might expect with a opening act like Gregg Allman, Steve played more of a R&B Set than a Pop Rock set. This is actually a good thing as you get to hear more guitar.
"Living In The U.S.A." was dedicated to the people in the military.
"The Joker", "Take the Money and Run", "Rock'n Me", "Fly Like an Eagle", "Jet Airliner", "Jungle Love", "Swingtown", "Abracadabra"
All titles anyone listening to 70's and 80's music should remember. some new variants as to how the lyrics were delivered but enjoyable just the same.
Will NOT go to deep into the sucketh that is Koka Booth Amphitheatre.
No signage for parking. Why? They take over a business parking lot after business hours.
No Food includes no skittles.
No video screens. (If you can see the stage, great. If not, too bad so sad).
Will be hard set to get me back.
Yes even though I rant about the venues I usually enjoy the Music.
As Steve Miller is in my top 10 (if I have a top 10, can't remember) I enjoyed the concert very much.
May have to go see him next time he is in the area.
