Having been compared favorably to him in a review once in the Carpinteria Coastal View and being the webmaster for the Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara afforded me the opportunity recently to experience one of those rare joys life has to offer.

That joy being the performance of the Richard Thompson Band live at the Lobero Theatre (http://lobero.com). Richard Thompson is one of those rare performers who transcends any categorization and is in a class all by himself. He is the creme of the music business crop in this time of lean harvests with pre-programmed bands all trying to sound the same competing for the almighty pop dollar.

Thompson did not rest on his laurels however, he unleashed a high energy onslaught with a slew of tunes that he thoroughly enjoyed delivering off of his recent release Mock Tudor.

There was Hamlet for Morons, 2-Faced Love and the last and only band to ever attempt and get away with a slow fox-trot. Looking fit and trim, Thompson and his merry band which consisted of Texan, Michael Jerome, on Drums who laid down very solid grooves the entire evening, Pete Zorn who played a number of different instruments from guitar to mandolin to flute to Appalachian Dulcimer and all very capably and on stand up bass, Danny Thompson who created much magic with his playing and created many mystical mood altering notes with a violin bow ala Jimmy Page.

To sum it up, it was high quality music, beautiful arrangements, solid song structure, strong layered vocals. They called the series "Sings Like Hell" and Thompson did! He gives an honest, soulful performance that when you close your eyes resonates throughout.

Thompson is a must see for anyone who is a serious songwriter and wants to see a master at work. I was truly inspired and do not feel worthy of the comparison, but take it as a high compliment.

Here are some upcoming shows:

4/1 - Portsmouth, NH - Portsmouth Music Hall

4/2 - Burlington, VT - Flynn Theatre

4/3 - Ellsworth, ME - Grand Auditorium

4/4 - Northhampton, MA - Iron Horse Music Hall
