L'il Ed & The Blues Imperials

I had a really good time listening to L'il Ed and the Blues Imperials at the Toad Tavern last night. Not only is L'il Ed a talented guitar player and really good singer, but this man is a trip. He is a natural on stage, a real crowd pleaser. He sings, he plays guitar, he's funny and has the biggest grin you can imagine. His eyes are very expressive and at times, he'll look at the crowd and just by the way he looks at you, he's telling another whole story. 

If you click here, you can hear the same song that the group opened with.

The rest of the band is good.  The rhythm guitarist sang a couple of songs that the crowd loved.  But. it's hard to take your eyes off L'il Ed, dressed so colorfully, with a trademark fez on his head. His hat tonight (he has several with different decorations) was red and covered in sequins. The rest of his outfit was pretty "out there" too. His shoes were about the same color as his hat.

All in all, it was a good reason to stay out late on a school night.  Now, I have to put on my thinking cap and go to a class in advanced Excel.  TGIF!

If you're in the Denver area, why not head over to A Knitted Peace for social knitting tonight?  Besides knitting, the group will be discussing a book this evening, "The Beekeeper's Apprentice" by Laurie R. King.  I haven't finished reading it yet, but it'll be interesting to hear other's opinions of the book.  I'm liking it lot so far.
