David Bromberg at Hugh’s Room

It was a great treat to be at Hugh’s Room tonight for David Bromberg’s solo performance. I like a lot of things about David Bromberg. He’s a remarkably eclectic musician and it seems that he creates his shows on the fly without a set list. He plays what he feels like playing. At one point tonight he morphed an old jug band tune into a Wooly Bully audience singalong – not something I ever would have expected.

I love the way David Bromberg serves up a song – great timing, creative guitar work, with just enough drama in the vocals and occasionally a spoken word story contained within the song. I wish you all could have been there with us.

I didn’t take any photos at the show tonight. I used to try to take a few shots at shows but more recently, I prefer to put away the camera and simply enjoy the performance. There is some excellent video of Mr. Bromberg performing available on YouTube though, if you don’t know his work. Here he is performing Mr. Bojangles from 2011.
