DRU DAVIS . . .This concert was part of the autumn art ala carte series.  It was the second concert.  The first concert featured Bruce Lacey. 

Dru's concert didn't start on time and he didn't do a sound check ahead of time, although he had plenty of time to do one.  Dru should have done a sound check.  His performance suffered for it.  Also, he mentioned that he was going to do some new and innovative things throughout his performance.  Either his interpretation of new and different is different than mine, or he changed his mind, or nothing that he did was very new or very different.

I thought the performance was a bit lackluster.  It was o-kay as a break from work and a performance to serve as background music for lunch, but that's about it.  Dru did play a rather upbeat song from his new CD which he is either putting together in October or will be available in October.  He really wasn't clear about which option that was.  The new CD will be the first with his real name on it.  He didn't exactly explain as to why that was and why there were others out there with a different name.  So, I wasn't really sure if he had been in a group before or what.

I'll probably check him out again, just to see if I can find out the answers to my questions.  Maybe his performance will be better.  Maybe he was just having a bad day.
