John and The All Nighters opened for Dierks Bentley on this Saturday evening in Austin, Texas and really did a wonderful job. At first it looked like the crowd was a little light, but then John started to play and here we go! Not a whole lot of flash to John's set, but he did connect with the audience and set some of them a two steppin'. The sound made you feel good and was so easy to connect with. He even took a couple of moments to have fun with the band on stage, for the audience, introducing his slide guitar player and the pet squirrel that is kept in his shirt while he performs. Wow! I cant believe I saw it. It was absolutely hilarious and although all the girls in the audience gave the collective 'AWWWWWWW' when they saw it, they went right back to business. Really, how many times in a guys life can he pull out his furry friend onstage and have women completely love it!http://www.dierks.com/ ) came out onstage, no explosions, no crack of thunder, just the roar of the crowd. I was happy to be here and enjoy of piece of this (and apparently the crowd was more than happy themselves). Here is another musician that really feeds off the energy of his crowd!
It was just a great night for everyone in attendance. Dierks Bentley and Rozone Productions know how to light up and heat up the Texas night sky. With a wonderful catalog of music to plow through, Dierks did this in grand fashion and left everyone happy to have been there. With so many people raising up their drinks and their voices, it was one kick ass night at the Nutty Brown Cafe (http://www.nuttybrown.com/ ), deep in the heart of Texas. Can you imagine that I almost didn't go to this show (mijita)...'What was I thinkin?'
