When I first went to see Spoonful O' Blues, I was
expecting an entertaining way to pass the time on a boring Saturday. What I got was
something quite different. I got an absolute blast of great music, skill, stage presence
and entertainment all coming together to form musical euphoria!
Ken Flint, the drummer, with his cool shades on the whole time (even though the arena was dark) was proving to everyone present that he knew what he was doing. It's hard to find a good drummer these days, and Ken is one of those rare people. He twirls his sticks, sings, and makes comments that keep everyone entertained throughout. What more can you ask for?
As for the bassist, Bruce, he was something else. His ability to sing and play at the same time is flawless and makes for a great show. He is also one of the main drives of stage presence, as he would continually move over to the guitarist during his solo's and peer over his shoulder, make faces and try to "mess him up." It was definitely something I was glad to see that kept me over the top entertained.
Now, the guitarist, RT (Arty), is nothing more than amazing. He is an inspiration to aspiring guitar players (like myself) and his playing is outrageous. His fiery solos are nothing short of legend. The way he works his fretboard is something you have to see. It is obvious he has an emotional attachment to his music and a seriousness that makes the band even stronger.
Spoonful O' Blues made me into a fan that night, and I hope to see them many more times in the future. The only thing that I'd like to see changed is their name.
If you ever happen to hear of this group playing near you, cancel your plans and grab a ticket.

A group of us came from upstate NY's Mid-Hudson Valley to see Spoonful o' Blues at the Islip Pavilion. They're great! I could tell that all the guys are really into the music and are having fun! I loved Bruce's singing, RT's guitar work, and Ken's drumming, along with the little tricks he does with the drumstick as he relates to the audience. They perform classic rock standards, but make them their own, unique in the moment. Well worth the trip!
