03 - 23 - 04 Beacon Theater

The ABB are a great band. The Tuesday March 23 show at the Beacon was a joy to behold. The sound was great. Gregg's singing is very powerful and clear and impassioned. Derek and Wayne played great guitar. And what else can you say about the best rhythm section around?

My favorites were 'Rockin Horse' and 'Whipping Post' when they really let go.

Based upon prior year Beacon Shows I would say that they were either tired or held back for some reason. But they are still the greatest rock ensemble playing. Go see them this summer.

I try to go to at least one Beacon show every year. Each time I think that show was best. So....3/23/2004 was definitely one of the best ABB shows I've been too. Derek was as precise, elegant and soulful as ever. Warren ripped it up. Greg of course did his thing. And the rest of the band were great too. Despite Dickey's absence, I think this line-up is tighter than it has been in years. Warren's "Into the Mystic" was awesome! Loved "Whipping Post" and just about everything else. Not a disappointing minute...except for Warren, when he busted a string during a solo...but he just kept playing on till the song ended. I wish I could go again this week...Please come back soon. Don't make me wait another year.

I've been going to ABB shows for 15yrs. Warren has always been amazing and never seems to let up. Derek is like a godsend, the emotion that pours from his guitar sends a soulful rush through my spirit that brings me to one of the warmest places I have ever experienced. Greg was singing and playing smooth and lively. The rythm section as powerful as ever. Despite some technical problems for Derek early on and perhaps a Tuesday night lull in the run, the show was at least average. For these boys even average is outstanding!
