always enjoy the performances at Skyline Stage on
Navy Pier. The venue is small, the Acoustics
are great, and there really isn't a bad seat in the house.
It's worth the hell bent 1hr 35min drive from the Fox
Valley area during rush hour into the City.
set list pretty much follows the other reviews with
"Part Of The Plan" opening the show, followed by
"Heart Hotels", then "Crow". I almost
forgot how good a song "Crow" really is and
hadn't listened to it for some years. It really brought
back some memories for me. Even Dan made a comment to the
predominant middle aged audience by saying:
"So....you liked the 70's huh?....Good! We'll be
there again soon!".
all, I thought Dan's performance was very good and he
always surrounds himself with some top notch musicians
when he isn't playing solo. The extended Jam on
"Power Of Gold" really proves how well a lead
guitar player he is, and the tribute song to Muddy Waters
leaves you with a taste wanting more. I thought his vocals
were a little rough on a couple of songs as opposed to his
performance I saw last year at the Coronado Theater in
Rockford where he was definitely on it through out the
entire show. I would have liked to have heard more from
the new CD since this latest release seems to be dedicated
mostly to his loyal fans that have continued supporting
him long after his music diminished from main stream
think the man still has a lot of talent left in him. As
long as he continues to Record and Tour, I will continue
to buy his Recordings and be entertained at his shows.
