Big House benefit show at the Cox Capitol Theater.

First, this evening was organized by Miss Terry. You done good, Girl!!!

Put Jimmy Hall on the same stage with Tommy Talton and you will get
some fantastic blues rock music. Add Chuck Leavell to the mix and you will
get some incredible music. So it was in Macon last night!!!

Chuck was on stage about 40 minutes, I think. "Honky Tonk Women" delivered
by Chuck and Jimmy cannot be beat, even if certain Englishmen were in town.
Chuck brought so much energy to the show.

Jimmy Hall put on a rollicking blues show as only Jimmy can. A fine bluesman with his
own style. I love watching him conduct the band. And Tommy's band is first rate.

Randall Bramblett started the show right on time and warmed up the audience for
the others. And he did a great job of it. Diane Durant sang a sexy duo with Jimmy.
Not to be missed.

It was a dream team band and they were all at their best. I don't remember ever
leaving a show so happy and so satisfied.

Seeing some friends from this website was wonderful too. Bluedad and Big Dave
were there and we met Dave's two beautiful daughters. Also met Miss Elf and Goliath
for the first time. Also saw Tandan, Larraine and Greg Potter and more. I am too
excited to go to sleep. I am so glad we came to Macon for this show!

Just got home from this great show. Sorry I didn't get to meet you Ruthlane. Saw Bluedad but did get to talk but did say hello to BDOB. Dan sorry I missed you!

Outstanding show. Tommy's keyboard player and drummer were awesome. Randall on sax with Jimmy was another great moment.

And you forgot the Joe Pitts band. Was quite pleased with their set! Joe did a great "Loan Me a Dime".

Although my daughter and I were sitting next to each other, we had to text to hear what we were saying. She text'd to me that she wants Chuck Leavells's shoes!

Ruth, I wish I had more of a chance to talk to you last night, I know you were right behind me. I was so brain dead by the time of the show - lo l-my son got married that morning, the rehearsal the night before, Bill's tree that afternoon, by last night, I felt like I was the walking dead. I hope you come out for another show soon so I can get a chance to know you better!

It was great seeing everyone at the show last night; Macon is such a great place to live these days! And I really enjoyed seeing the Joe Pitts Band for the first time!

Got to tell ya'll that last night there was not a greater assembly of musicians on any bandstand in the entire world at that time....

Be willing to take a few bets on that one..

Always good seeing Ruthie and Sergio

Got to ride in and back with the BigDaveOnBass family....The wife and the daughters. They are just sweethearts ...

Seet hanging with TanDan and daughter. Hadn't seen her in a few years and she is absolutely lovely...

And of course all the Macon peeps....

Got some pics to post when I get around to it.

When I got home, my wife was hurrying my youngest son to the Emergency Room. Been there all afternoon and evening. Not sure what is wrong with him, however they doctors think it might be his appendix. Hope to get a report on him in the AM. He is in the best place if it is indeed his appendix...

When I was writing my post at 3:00 am, I was just wiped out.
But I didn't forget Joe Pitts, as a matter of fact, I bought his CD at the show.
Sergio and I were very impressed with Joe Pitts Band. We will be looking for them again!

Dave, I love those photos! Makes me feel like I am there again. Love Chuck's shoes!

Larraine, I look forward to visiting Macon again and spend some time with you. I know you
were very busy during the show at the merchandise table.

Bluedad, I hope your son is over his problem soon!

On our drive back to Delray Beach today, Sergio and I kept talking about the show. I agree with
you Bluedad, no greater group of musicians anywhere that night. They were on fire. What
an exciting show all the way around. I am so glad we made that trip.

Miss Terry, you rock!!!

And Jimmy Hall struts his stuff while conducting his orchestra. I love that.

I know you didn't forget them on purpose. Certainly understandable since you posted early in the a.m. I liked Joe Pitts so much I had decided to buy one of his CD's but when I got down there after the show both he and Randall had already cleared out!

Hey Reed,

Hate I missed you

This is my third time hearing The Joe Pitts Band and they can bring it.....

I too looked for him after his band played to buy a CD, but alas he was gone. I did get to talk to Joe at the soundcheck. I think they really made a good impression on the audience

As soon as I find out how to get the Joe Pitts CD, I'll let you know

Wow, what a great night of music, family, and friends.

Randall's wife, sister and bro in law were there and it was cool to watch them grooving to Randall's songs.

Very pleased to meet Ruthie and Sergio and have them witness this. Thanks for coming up!

Mama Louise got plenty of love from the stage and the audience. She looked great and told me she felt real good.

Dianne Durrett can really bring it. Wow. I have seen her a few times before and she always knocks me out.

First time meeting the BDOB fam. What a lucky man to have such lovely women in his llife.

I sure missed the Tallhassee girls, but I guess they can't come to Macon every weekend.

Great to see everyone and thanks to the Big House, John Griffin, Miss Terry, and the musicians for a wonderful night out!

I've posted twice and neglected to mention Goliath. Really enjoyed talking to you!

Anyhow I was like a teenager. Was able to get the set list and had Tommy and Jimmy sign them!

Now folks...You've heard it how great the music was from several people but when you get a chance to see Tommy go. And if you get a chance to see Jimmy go but if they're together wow do everything you can to be there.

If you're on Facebook please become a fan of Music Matters Entertainment. Terry will keep you up to date on great shows like this!

You can also sign up for Miss Terry's news letter, Music Matters.
I keep up with all these great shows and musicians via email newsletter,
as well as the ABB website.

I have been to Macon three times in less than two years, all three times to see Jimmy Hall.
We stayed in Macon in August and went to the GMHF and drove to Griffin for a show with Jimmy,
Tommy Talton and his band and Diane Durrett. Great show.

We saw Tommy for the first time in NYC last March at the HTW afternoon party and we knew
we wanted to see him again. We feel fortunate to have seen him twice since then. And Tommy's
band is outstanding.

One other thing, the venue is excellent, The sound is great in the Cox Capitol Theater. We would
definitely like to see more shows there. And you can be sure any show Terry Reeves puts together
will be a great show!

Thank you, Ruthie for starting this thread, and thanks Dave for the pics. And a BIG thank you to everyone who attended, to the Big House and Cox Capitol Theatre for believing, and to Catfish, John Griffin, Steve Joyce, Willie Gaston, Joey Fernandez and Billy Scott for all their help. We've booked a lot of great shows at the theatre; this one came together better than any of us expected. Last, but not least, thank you to every musician who stepped on stage. Beautiful, beautiful night in Macon, GA, my second home!

Now that I am back to work, I have time to write a proper review of the show.

The day started with the gathering for Bill's GABBA memorial tree at Rose Hill. It's in the garden near the entrance road, so it should be easy for everyone to find. It was a beautiful service, with a local Macon preacher (whose name escapes me right now) saying some thoughtful words about music, Macon and the ties that bind us, Kirk encouraged us to share stories of Bill, so we did. MissTerry and Bluedad teamed up for a nice rendition of Melissa.

Ate a bite of supper at Macon Pizza, formerly known as Spaghetti Alley. It's in the alley near the Cox Capitol Theater and was reasonably priced and DE-LISH!!

First up was Randall Bramblett, solo and acoustic. I knew Randall was a hell of a musician, but I had never seen him play much guitar. Well, he's quite good, and hearing acoustic versions of some of his material was a real treat. Tommy came out and played a couple tunes with him. Next chance I get to see them play together as a duo, I'm going for it.

Next up was Joe Pitts Band. This is a three piece duo playing bluesy rock tunes, or rockin' blues tunes. Joe played a beautiful cherry sunburst Les Paul, and I couldn't help but think of some noteABBle influences. Well, I was correct in that thinking. Joe plays and sings very well, and when when he played a Les Brers teaser to the beginning of a nice rendition of Loan Me a Dime, it came all came home to Macon. He's very fluid on slide guitar as well, and his band was superb and very tight.

Next up was something I wasn't expecting. Chuck Leavell, Jimmy Hall, Randall Bramblett and Diane Durrett ALL out for the opener of The Tommy Talton Band set. You figure the guests would trickle out, one at a time, but they came out early and with guns blazing. Chuck led and sang the first few tunes and that set the tone for the rest of the show. As I have said before in other review threads, I don't keep track of set lists, but the show was some of the best jamming I have seen in a while. They just played and had fun and took the crowd along with them. Randall and Jimmy took turns on sax and Jimmy would jump to harp and let Randall have the sax solos. Jimmy is a ball of fire and you could tell he was having a big time! Chuck had to leave early, and Randall followed him after half the show with Tommy, but Jimmy stayed all night. Tony G. is a real virtuosic keyboardist and I always enjoy watching and listening to him play. He's real lively!

I think we left 5 or 10 minutes before the show was actually over as we had to head home to get ready for some early Sunday church activities. I'm hoping someone taped and I hope this show will get in circulation. It was KILLER!
