Evanston starlight concerts

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential

Well, last night, the City of Evanston provided yet another of their wonderful outdoor Starlight Concerts, featuring Wayne "the train" Hancock.

Wayne is a bit... well, let's call him "interesting". He may be small in height, but he's large in stature.  His somewhat nasally intonations carry far and wide with a little bit of electronic amplification.

And interestingly enough there were quite a few, in the crowd of maybe 200-300 who knew Wayne's music enough to call out favourites for him to sing, which he happily accomodated.

 

He's an interesting mix of country, swing and blues.  I've never seen Wayne before, but I'll bet he'd be a fun "bar show".  I've included a couple of his "youtube" videos, so you can get a sample of what it sounded like in south central Evanston last night, in the Shadow of Mount Trashmore in James Park.  Enjoy.

Alan:  To say you're open-minded about your concert picks is an understatement!  I'm married to a woman that is a hard-core lover of country music ... and I'm not talking anything you'll ever hear on local country stations.  She's introduced to me bluegrass, Memphis sound, classic country, alternative country and more ... so Wayne has cropped-up.  Never a dull moment!  You never know until you try it, right?

Have a great 4th holiday weekend!

Gene - in one of his songs he declares, when I get down... I "twist one up" and gather in all my friends.  Alternative, indeed.

As a self-declared "hillbilly", let's just say, I might have heard of Wayne before in certain circles.  And I do know some folks who will appreciate the YouTube links.

I am not sure what to think about Alan.

Jenna - you should "think" that Alan is one eclectic dude.

Well, I guess I am on the right track then.  You are an interesting fellow, Mr. May, and I enjoy reading your blog.
