The Chitown debut of the mighty Warren Haynes Band brought a jam packed sold out crowd to the intimate Park West laced with wild enthusiasm & sincere love for all things Warren. Warren delivered a spontaneous combustion of sensory showmanship. Live musical convergence like never seen or felt before.
Warren Haynes Band catapulted heinously plunging into their electro rock soul funk fusion all night for 3 unearthly hours spun over 2 huge sets.
First set highlights of this freak scenery were “Man in motion” & moving “River’s gonna rise” to open up. Other brilliance came in the form of Tower of Power’s “What is hip”, original “On a real lonely night”, swansong “Soul Shine” > Van’s “Tupelo Honey”.
The 2nd set breathed to life with “Forevermore” & “Gordon James” before Warren trips out on a whim fueled by enthusiastic fans giving in to playfully do “Roller Derby Queen” (by Chicagoan Jim Croce). Truly memorable moment for us fans.
The rest of the improv sonic set was spicily punctuated with songs like “Beautifully Broken”, with a sexy Prince “When Doves Cry” tease, fresh new “Hattiesburg Hustle” climaxing with the encores of “Broken Promised Land” & a sultry freakgasmic “That’s what Love will make you do” with friend Davey Knowles (of Backdoor Slam) on guitar. A funky racy stomp indeed.
Being on Warren Band tour is positively fulfilling & loaded with good times & fun peeps. Chasing music this sweet never felt so good.
