Concert notes and photos - Three Amigos

7 February 2014 (Road 34, Ft. Collins CO)

Three Amigos

026 Three Amigos Roger Clyne comes through town fairly often with his band The Peacemakers. But he's also gotten in the habit of visiting us for more intimate shows like this one (the first of two nights at Road 34). Clyne brough along his usual posse, Johnny Hickman (Cracker) and Jim Dalton (Railbenders, Peacemakers), and this time the group billed themselves Three Amigos.

The show gave each man some solo time as well as all the possible group configurations. Aside from classics from each one's back catalog, they also pulled off a hodgepodge of cover songs including "Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues (by Danny O'Keefe, but you might know the Charlie Rich version), "Blister In The Sun" (Violent Femmes), and "Go Your Own Way" (Fleetwood Mac).

For me, though, the high point was getting to make my own personal contribution. Hickman somehow lost his guitar pick and couldn't find it. I recognized that he was looking for a pick and I held up one of my orange Dunlop Tortex picks from my pocket. He gratefully accepted the gift and went on to finish the show.

It was a long, late night of great music and musical community.
