Casey Donahew Band
Denim & Diamonds
Friday, February 10, 2012
"Up all night sippin' on whiskey n' drinkin' beer."
Well that definitively described the concert by the Casey Donahew Band last night.
The energy level was so high, you almost didn't notice that drummer TAZ was missing. He was in the hospital, but the band stepped it up and soldiered on without him.
J.J. Soto, lead guitarist played drums for the night, while A.C. Copeland, keyboardist took over lead guitar for the night.
The parking lot was already packed, lines out the door and everyone was singing and dancing, of course.

It seemed that the crowd was eager to take Donahew's lyrical suggestions to hear: "Talk about the good times/And drink down the bad."
Critic's Notebook: Last Night: Casey Donahew Band Crowd: Beers in everyone's hands. Dancing, mainly two-stepping. Overheard in the crowd: "Yee-Haw!" and "Woo-hoo!" Yeah, that was the general consensus of the crowd.
