I’ve seen Eric Johnson twice before but the last time was in 1997. Ironically, I learned he was coming to town only a few days before the show, June 28, 2012. I’ve been following him since around the Summer of 1990, when Ah Via Music Viacom was starting to get real airplay. Needless to say, I was very excited about seeing him in Orlando with tickets being only $25. I was hoping to hear a few tunes one of his newer albums. Fortunately, he didn’t disappoint. I managed to bring my camera inside and shot decent footage of the show. After the show, I was lucky enough to meet him and have a photo taken of he and I. He is truly insprires and motivates me to play guitar.
I had never seen Popper with Blues Traveler so I wasn’t sure what to expect from Popper and his new band on April 14, 2011 at Wanee Fest. In front of a crowd of maybe 2000, Popper and his band put on a riveting show.
