Larry Jack’s Magical Music Tour 5/8/14 – 5/12/14

Hey guys,
If you are ever wondering how exciting the music scene is downtown, just ask someone who was at the Charles Bradley show at the Jinx on Wednesday night. It was probably my favorite Jinx show ever. Even before the show, you could feel the excitement in the air, especially in the people who had seen him before and knew what to expect. By the end, I had seen people with tears in their eyes and I had seen people on the back row dancing with their hands in the air. It truly felt like a spiritual cleansing to see this man, who obviously feels very blessed to be able to do what he loves, put on such an incredible show. You couldn’t help but leave the show feeling uplifted. And I got a kiss from Angel Bond! I am glad to say it was much better than the kiss from either Ray Lundy or Eric Dunn.

It seems like every week or two has a great touring act coming to one of the downtown venues. The Blitzen Trapper show on Monday may be another of those great shows. Savannah’s own favorites the Train Wrecks are opening for them at the Jinx. And don’t feel like you have to catch a touring band to see a good show, Savannah is full of excellent home-grown bands that will not disappoint. These are some of the acts I recommend this week.
