Boulder, CO’s The Fox Theatre continued its month-long celebration of the venue’s 25th anniversary with a double-header from none other than The Greyboy Allstars this past weekend. For the Saturday night performance, Karl Denson (sax/flute/vox/percussion), Robert Walter (keys), Chris Stillwell (bass, vox), Aaron Redfield (drums), and Michael Andrews/Elgin Park(guitar, vox) left no stone left unturned, as the group played on another level the entire night.
The sheer talent of each individual member of the group was on full display, as the band made their way through their catalog of music with tracks like “Still Waiting” and “Deck Shoes” from 2007’s What Happened To Television?, as well as a set-closing “Quantico Va” from 1997’s A Town Called Earth. Other notable highlights on the evening were a debut of the Chris Stillwell written song “Twister,” and a smoking hot cover of Bob James‘ 1974 jazz number “Nautilus” (which was sampled by Ghostface Killah on “Daytona 500” from 1996). As Denson shined on the flute during the intro, Andrew and Stillwell brought that tough beat that the classic tracks is known for.
“Bitch Inside Me” and “Bomb Pop” kept the vibe on the floor at pique levels, and a cover of The Beatles‘ “Taxman” was a great way to end the night. The Fox Theatre continues its month-long 25th anniversary celebration with upcoming performances from Big Gigantic, The Motet, The Magic Beans, From Good Homes, North Mississippi Allstars, and more.
