Hopefully not the Last Dance

Last Thursday, I went to see Ned Sutton and the Last Dance play over at the Boondocks. The Boondocks gets a bad rap from some folks for God knows what reason. Maybe it’s too working class for hipster tastes. Heck, I’d rather spend a couple of hours there than I ever would at the Buffet or even the Shelter.

Ned’s latest agglomeration is The Last Dance. I saw them play in the patio at La Cocina a few months ago. They were solid, but their song selection may have lost more than a few folks in that audience. What you had was Sutton and company playing a series of rather down Western songs (“Give my Love to Rose,” for example) to a group of folks who for the most part were waiting for whatever dubstep or trance that night’s DJ was going to play. Tucson audiences can be pretty forgiving, but a few up tempo songs would have engaged them better.

Well, down tempo wasn’t a problem on Thursday, with a few more high energy songs thrown in. My guitar teacher, John Jensen, is plays in the band and he told me that the addition of a drummer is what’s responsible for that. It seems to have worked.

I think their run at the Boondocks is over, we’ll see where they turn up next.

I saw an older gentleman with dancing with a woman out in front of the band at one point. After one song he comes over to me and says, “I’m 94 years old!”

A few minutes later, the woman tries to get him to go back out.

“No, that’s all right,” he said.

I found out later that the man is Ned Sutton’s father, and the woman is Ned’s wife.

Hasta la proxima. Do zobaczenia.
