Another blog entry here (I saw the "Rod Stewart" look-alike as well).
We're members of the Montalvo Arts Center, so we get first crack at buying the tickets. As such, we were able to secure seats 7 rows back, dead center. Being at eye-level and center made for a very enjoyable experience. Villa Montalvo is a beautiful outdoor venue. It was a balmy 85 degrees F when the concert began, but very pleasant as the concert wrapped up 2.5 hours later!
Jason is clearly returning to his acoustic and coffee-house roots. He will be releasing an acoustic CD this fall. His voice is so good, smooth, and versatile, that it is really just another instrument on the stage. Technically solid.
The part that blew me away was when Jason, in the middle of a song while he was singing, turned off his guitar's amplifier, tuned it, then turned the amp back on. I don't understand how you can tune the guitar while singing. Damn talented people!
Thanks, Jason, for a very enjoyable evening.
