Joe Adler and Jaco Schiller

 

I had a great night of seeing music May 26th at Radio Bean. It had been a challenge to get out and see music. With lots of paperwork to deal with after mom’s death and working five 50 hour weeks in a row, I’ve mostly been coming home and collapsing. I put in a 10 hour day that Saturday but still had a little energy left.

I took the short walk down to the Bean and got in and settled. Joe Adler got up to sing and play acoustic guitar and was joined by Jaco Schiller on accordion. He added a nice flow to Joe’s strong songs. They began with a breezy Relax then ordered up some Coffee & Eggs. Joe leaned into the phone microphone for a beautiful version of Brothers And Sisters. They pulled out covers of Cohen’s Chelsea Hotel and Beck’s Asshole. They took a ride with Midnight Jones And The Jimmer then sang about how the friends you see every day slip away, and how tomorrow is just a game that we play. They sang about a Little Bird then took us on a trip to Atlantic City. They introduced us to Mr Siegal then sang about Old Mary. They had us sing along to Many A Girl and the room was hopping. What a great way to end the show.

I had heard great things about Dan Blakeslee but had never seen him. I hung out for his first set and enjoyed his singer/songwriter country sound. He sang about a bonfire in Burlington. He sang about being between the darkness and you. He graced us with a new song about not being a gambling man then told us how to stick it to the man any way you can. He pulled out a countrified cover of Just Like A Woman then sang about carrying you with me wherever I go. I think it was about being on tour. He was lively and fun when chatting with the audience between songs. He sang about a kitten and about how home is in the heart. I missed the details about the song that closed the set but it was as cool as the others.

I had to work early in the morning so I ducked out quickly after his set was done. I’m so glad I finally got a chance to hear him play and sing, and it’s always a treat to listen to Joe. What a great night.

Yea music!!
