Tim Blaine; Patrick Thomas @ Rockwood Music Hall

Tim Blaine; Patrick Thomas
@ Rockwood Music Hall
New York, NY - October 4, 2009

Tim Blaine's brashness comes in his devotion to a pop-Jazz sound that could so easily be processed candy but instead comes out as pitch perfect musical craftsmanship. His backing band is an evident treasure trove of talent and it makes for a refreshing change of pace from all the static that is increasingly blasting from across the river in northern Brooklyn.

On a similar note, Patrick Thomas is keeping the light going in the singer-songwriter genre, infusing his songs with countrified and reggage-ish workings. He also has a fine stage presence which places the music on a bigger pedestal than it may otherwise be.

I'll forgive the addition of an i in my last name cause this was such a nice review. :)
Many thanks! Especially for noticing how good my bandmates are- they are a delight to play with. Thanks for coming to the show!
