Kevin Moore : Monday : Invitational Jam

Monday nights at Harvelle's have been drawing increasingly larger crowds due to the December residency of Kevin Moore, a skilled singer/songwriter and a legendary blues man. His guitar skills are impressive, his voice is a beehive full of compacted soul, dripping with honey. This last week his impressive 3 piece band backed him rock solidly as he engaged the crowd with versions of "Born Under A Bad Sign", "Love And Happiness", "If You Want Me To Stay", "I've Been Loving You Too Long" and surprisingly, a version of Steely Dan's "Black Cow"! Just awesome.
He had guest vocalist Gavin Christopher (above) working it out as well, joining in on a slow soul version of "Love The One You're With", and a couple of other songs. Maybe most notably, Kevin proved his quiet guitar flash performing an extended solo with the gravitas of Jimmy Page. Versatility, musicianship, and the chops of a seasoned entertainer, Kevin's doing something right!
