By now, many students are settled in to classes with the start of the new school year. The audience for Hugh Laurie in
, last week, also settled in for a fantastic musical Journey guided by Hugh Laurie and his band with back up singers that also includes Jean McClain. Great Jazz and Blues performances were complimented with Hugh’s sense of humor and his knowledge of song writers and music performers. Hugh Laurie, in fact, complimented the Boston based audience for its recognition of the Jazz and Blues greats he mentioned that were greeted with applause throughout the two hour plus show. Boston
The Hugh Laurie Music Tour is not instructional, but it leaves audiences ravaness for more of the music Hugh Laurie supports. I wanted to go deeper in to the history of Jazz, Blues and all sorts of music genres to expand my interest in music. All thanks to the lessons learned at Hugh Laurie’s concert.
As for the performance, everyone on stage gave it their all. Upbeat and engaging selections had the audience tapping foot and standing on their feet clapping, cheering and begging for more at the end of the performance.
Live music uniquely celebrates and informs in all genres. Hugh Laurie is one live music performer who truly knows how to guide and entertain as well.
