John Mayer Day.
John Mayer – Neon, live, Where The Light Is
It is with abundant joy and honour that I declare July 7th to be John Mayer Day, in every city and country that should happen randomly to come across this blog entry.
This evening Johnny is playing to a welcoming Toronto crowd as he rolls in with his masterfully combined blend of pop and blues, rock and soul food he calls music. And precisely one year after tearing the roof off of New York City to help to raise awareness for energy conservation and global warming, Johnny is here celebrating the release of Where The Light Is, his acclaimed new live album showcasing his broad range as a performer and musician.
As you can see by the videos posted here, Johnny hasn’t forgotten a step, and the album (or video) begins with him performing acoustically solo for the jam-packed December audience at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
John Mayer Trio – Bold As Love, live, Where The Light Is
He then steps off for only a moment and is joined again by a couple of legends, drummer Steve Jordan and bassist Pino Palladino. Together, known as the John Mayer Trio, they reunited to proceed to blow the audience away with a performance I can only describe as electric and explosive, before John finished the show with an encore accompanied by his usual touring band.
So tonight, as I attend the concert with Nicole and her Mom, I will tip my hat and think of all of you, my beloved friends and family. Happy John Mayer Day to you all, I hope you’re keeping where the light is.
