Taylor Hicks, August 25, 2010, San Francisco, California, Audio Recording

A friend and I caught Taylor Hicks at the Rrazz Room in San Francisco last week.

It was my first time at the venue. It had a great vibe and great sound.

It was my zillionth time seeing Taylor Hicks. He also had a great vibe and a great sound. I thought it was one of the better TH shows I’ve seen. I still think The Roxy was the best TH show I’ve ever seen, but this Rrazz Room show is now my second favorite. That’s my second favorite out of a zillion shows, so that is saying something.

He was relaxed, but serious. He rocked it out, mixed it up, was liberal with the tags, and had an entertaining set list. It was a treat to have LiMBO band members Jeff Lopez on the sax, Brian Less on the keys, and Sam Gunderson on guitar. Those guys seem like old friends I haven’t seen in a long time, and it was great to see and hear them again. They were joined by the excellent Leif Bondarenko and Matt Kimbrell on drums and percussion and the excellent Brandon Peeples on bass.

The venue had an aura of ‘cool,’ and the crowd was cool, too.

We had good seats and I had planned to record the show as usual so obviously I brought my recorder. Unfortunately, but I forgot something I needed to make my mics work, so I couldn’t use them. It’s too bad too, because the sound was great at our seats and it would have been a pretty good recording.

At the last minute I decided to try my luck with using the internal mics on my recorder. I hit record, and let it go.

I think it doesn’t sound too bad for using the internal mics, so I’m going to go ahead and post the recording…

    I think those little internal mics on your R-09 deserve a round of applause!! I bet the intimate setting helped to create a good sound as well. Thank you so much for doing this — this is some of my favorite audio of the whole tour so far!

    Thank you so much for recording the concert. I haven’t been able to make any of Taylor’s concerts this year so this is extra special for me. 🙂

    I was thrilled to see downloads for the entire concert. The quality ~ I thought ~ was excellant. It was so good to hear Taylor in a comfortable atmosphere; yet, delivering each song with intensity.
    Great performance! Thanx so much for allowing us to share in this experience.♥
