with Covid still active and new restrictions in place, we are choosing to do mini "photo reviews" for as many shows as we can this year

restrictions limit us to grabbing a few shots during the first 2 or 3 songs and then we need to be on our way

Catching The Raz at Barn Owl Brewing was quite a departure from what has been playing at the local wineries and craft breweries so far this year. This was a classic rock fest with attitude and energy.

Both Roman Picco on keys and vocals as well as Will Sinclair on guitar and vocals fed up a feast of rock chops served with sides of tone and groove and 70s era light-heartedness and fun. It was so much more than I was expecting.

As has been the case with all these mini photo reviews during these Covid constrained times, I caught the first three songs before packing up my camera bag. In this case it was "Turn Me Loose" followed by "Ride Like The Wind" and then "Carry On My Wayward Son." I was pretty energized following those songs, and that would have been enough to allow me to leave satisfied with what I had heard..... but then they broke into "Josie" by Steely Dan and instead of getting into the car I had to walk back over, listen to the tune, and smile a big smile before I left.

If you're a classic rock fan and see this band come up on your radar with a gig here it town, do yourself a favor and make plans to go see them.
