Wow! They painted Gruene Hall - Is there any better place to be on a Friday night in Texas?? No!
Setlist - signed and all!
Me and Kelly - My wife smudged the lens to try and sabotage the pic!
Last Friday night was about as good as it gets for me in my little music world. Carrie and I were able to see my all time favorite female singer - Kelly Willis play at Gruene Hall. I've been a diehard Kelly Willis fan since 1993 or so. I have all of her albums and I bet I've seen her play 15+ times in my life. It had been about 8 years since we had last seen KW play, so this was a treat! Her show was awesome and she hasn't missed a beat since the early 90's. After the show I got her to sign the setlist I got, and I was also able to get a picture with her. Kelly is always very laid back and friendly with her fans....which is cool. She managed to play a great mix of old and new stuff and plenty off of my favorite KW albums - What I Deserve , Kelly Willis, and Well Traveled Love. I'm biased I know but Kelly has the BEST voice around. Make sure and check out her albums when you get a chance. One thing Kelly has going for her is that her husband is Bruce Robison. He's one of the best singer/songwriters in the business today. Below is a video from Friday of Kelly singing a Bruce Robison song -"Wrapped" maybe you've heard of it......we were listening to this song back in the late 90's....way before George did it.
