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

It was a blast catching Jodie B, the first time for me, up at The Vibrant Vine on Friday evening. She is a local musician who does the looping thing and does it well. Alternating between guitar, electric bass, harmonica, keyboards and voice, she builds songs from a wide range of genres and clearly enjoys delivering those in-the-moment creations to her fans.

There in fact was a very vocal and energetic crowd that came to catch her show. Their energy was easilty matched by hers; hard to tell who fed of whom. Regardless, everyone was having fun.

When I opened my car door after I arrived at the venue, the unmistakable strains of "Jolene" were already filling the air. It was only a couple of songs later when I was hearing an absolutely super cool version of the Chirs Isaak classic "Wicked Game." Her take on it was quite unique, and very musical. The nicest part about it, though, was how much she was obviously enjoying playing it. It's impossible for that kind of joy to not be contagious.

I find myself looking forward to catching an entire show of hers in the post-Covid future. Massively curious as to just how braod her creative musical palette is. Can't wait.
