RnR Smooth Cruise recap: 8/4/10

Later today, I will recap last night’s RnR (Rick Braun and Richard Elliot) concert at IMAC in Huntington, New York.  I attended the 7PM concert, sat in the first row for the third concert in a row, and straightaway center for the second time in three concerts (SJFS was the first).

Expect pictures and as much of the set list as I can identify or remember.

5:38 PM UPDATE: The recap will now be up by Monday at the latest.  Please be patient.

6/8, 1:50 AM UPDATE: I have selected the pictures to use for the recap and cropped them.  I hope to write the recap with those pictures later today.

6/8, 11:13 PM UPDATE: Here, finally, is the rest of the recap:

The set list included, but was not limited to:

“Curve Ball”
This led off the show.

“Down and Dirty”

“Notorious” (Rick’s song from “Body and Soul”)

“People Make the World Go Round” (covered by Richard on “Metro Blue”)
Midway through, Richard tried to get as much growl as he could out of his sax.

“Cadillac Slim”

“RnR”

“Grazin’ in the Grass” (covered by Rick with Boney James on “Shake It Up”)
This was the last song before the encore.

“Use Me” (covered by Rick on “Kisses in the Rain”)
This was the encore. Rick encouraged the audience to sing the lyric “Until you use me up” as loud as possible.

The end

And there you go.  It was a very exciting concert.  I can only imagine what the 9:30 crowd got.
