Later Brian Simpson recap: February 2015

Last night, I returned to Houndstooth Pub to see keyboardist Brian Simpson.  His show marked the anniversary of Midtown Groove.

Brian played the keyboard…

and the keytar:

Matt Marshak was on guitar, as he was last time:

John Dillard on bass:

Courtney Williams on drums:

And Brian Lanier on soprano (seen below) and alto sax:

I was on hand for the first set.  Here’s what Brian and the band played:
1. It Could Happen
2. Here With You
3. South Beach
4. Funkology (by Matt Marshak)
5. Can’t Tell You Why
6. Blues for the Houndstooth Pub (written for the show)
7. Let’s Get Close
8. Saturday Cool

Fasten your seat belts because it’s time to ride through the set via my cameras’ viewfinders.  That’s right, I used two (but not simultaneously).

Brian addressing Matt before “Funkology”:

Brian made his way toward one of the premium seat tables during “Saturday Cool”:

The last note of the set:

Before I left, I had a brief chat with Brian and we posed for a pic:

It was another wildly enjoyable set!  Thanks to Brian, Matt, John, C-Will, and Brian for a great show.

(By the way, I was wearing a souvenir shirt I bought last Sunday at the final round of The Barclays, a PGA Tour event held this year at Bethpage Black Golf Course.)
