Sounds like the typical venue for a Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son show. Right?
Especially when it's just acoustic.
Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son took to the "Steel Crusaders - Jersey Crew" meet and greet on Sunday afternoon in Bridgewater, N.J. for an impromptu performance. The headliner for the show, the Projex Band, serenaded the crowd with some classic rock favorites along with some country tracks.
Bobby and Jon first joined the band on Bruce Springsteen's "Radio Nowhere," adding some depth to the "I just want to hear some rhythm" sections of the track. But they also had acoustic guitars in hand.
At halftime, Projex lead singer Eddie Mac, father of Seventh Son's James Mac, gave the stage to the trio of Mahoney, Alba and the young Mac for an unexpected multi-song set. With just two acoustic guitars and drums, the guys kicked things off with the newest single off Friends in Low Places, "Another Deadbeat Summer."

Afterwards, Bobby called for a rare cover: "Rockin' in the Free World" by Neil Young. The song went over well with the crowd, with some in the audience pumping their fists at the chorus.
From there, it would be a Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son trio to close things out, with "Danger Dan" grooving straight into "Star-Crossed." Bobby then looked back at Mac and Alba and motioned for "Can't Stand Myself," the now seldolmly-played selection off the new album.
With that, Projex took back the stage, and continued to bring the house down in the blistering sun.
