Sam Roberts @ The Kee to Bala

It's been a few days now but the only thing playing consistently on my ipod has been the Sam Roberts band. This is the second time I've seen Sam Roberts live. The first was @ Live 8 in Barrie (Park Place or Toronto for tv land but that's another story). I quite enjoy the feel of a more intimate setting than the large festival type shows. Of course up to now I've only been way out in the crowd for most of these and haven't had the pleasure of the pit. First off the show was @ The Kee To Bala. Anyone who's ever seen a show @ The Kee can testify that its quite a unique experience. Nestled in the middle of cottage country this place really does get bouncing... literally. And I'm quite certain that most of the patrons, after a day at the cottage, are already feeling pretty good by the time they get to the show. On this night Sam and the band gave us all good reason to feel even better. The band started off with their current single Them Kids to a great reception from the crowd. The band powered through their set with hits like Dead End, Don't Walk Away Eileen and Bridge To Nowhere. Everyone was fully engaged and singing along loudly to the slower songs Taj Mahal and Uprising Down Under. My personal faves for the night were Brother Down and the final song Where Have All the Good People Gone. Great show ! One I'll remember for a while.
