Ghost Light Spring Tour

Post by SunshineSue » Wed Apr 11, 2018 9:45 pm

I'm just listening to my first stream of Ghost Light (Holly Bowling, Tom Hamilton, Steve Lyons, Raina Mullen, Scotty Zwang) and really like what I hear. Better yet, Ann Arbor is on their tour schedule so I can check them out! Has anyone seen them yet or have any comments or opinions? :listen :dance

I've got my tickets for Ann Arbor now! It's perfect timing, too: the show is Friday night, and coverage of Prince Harry's Saturday royal wedding in London should be starting not too long after we get home from the show, so I can just make an all-nighter of it. Substitute tea and crumpets for the usual grilled cheese! :mrgreen:

short summary is very good...way better live in person than the streams or recording sound

the 30 minute ??? Tangled Up in Blue in the 1st set was worth the $12 ticket cost by itself :jumpeveryone

Got a nice Greatest Story in the 2nd set.

I need to see a setlist cuz pretty sure there was another cover of a song that a couple of us just couldn't put our fingers on it.

A lot of their originals in both sets which are very good...

At times a harder rock edge...some thought like Umphreys or maybe even moe for parts of a song, esp in the 2nd set, but not overwhelming like that & def not a bad thing by any means...

a lot of folks purposely had NOT listened to any of their music prior to seeing them sat nite...i was not 1 of them,, but i came away like them a lot better live

it was a small club. like 280 capacity, sold out, very crowded & hot...i hung towards the back for more breathing room

came on at 920, short break like less than 20 minutes i think & with encore played to like 1230 ish

i think this band will stick, charge more than $12 & play a bigger venue next time they return to Boston :idea:

go see them if u can...real fun & well worth the $$

ps i don't think i saw anyone leave at set break or bitch about the palying...at all :whistle

Thanks for the review bones! Can't wait to see these guys and gals! I've been purposefully avoiding listening to much of them. I've only listened to about a half an hour or so of content.

Saw Holly solo here in St. Louis just a little bit ago -- excellent performance. Will see again.
