Great show and venue....would have liked to hear more of his older songs VS the newer ones. Would have also liked to take a picture during autograph session after buying a $30 t-shirt...
Dave Mason Still Great
Dave Mason was outstanding at Harrah's in South Lake Tahoe Sun Oct 1. I told my sister and brother in law that if the concert sucks, we don't have to stay as I'd seen a couple of older (70+) rockers who were not good. Well, I guess you could say I undersold the show. Mason and his three-piece backing band were fantastic. Mason was great on lead guitar and the other guitar player, keyboards and drummer were also great. Often the older guys are still good on their instruments, but the vocals are gone but Mason was still hitting all the notes and we didn't hear a rough note all evening. All the old Traffic songs were perfect along with the Dave Mason solo stuff. I highly recommend this concert to anyone who liked Mason and/or Traffic back in the day.
Dave Mason - Libbey Bowl Ojai
Great evening of classic songs by a true classic rock artist. Love Ojai!!
Dave Mason has always been one of my favorite artist. At 71 he still has what I think is one the best if not the best voices in rock'n roll! From his days with Traffic to his solo career his musicianship is always top notch. This was his "Alone Together Again" tour doing tunes from his first solo album but he mixed in other songs from traffic. The use of videos was a great stroll down memory lane from when these tunes came out. He has a great band backing him up as always. This is probably the 5th time I've seen at this venue which is great because it's small and intimate.
Dave Mason is a rock legend!!!!!
Dave and his band are immensely talented musicians and singers. The concert was even better than I had hoped for - fantastic vocals that sound as good if not better than decades earlier. If you get a chance to see Dave Mason go.
