Bobby Mahoney

Show Report - The Mansion, 8/9/14

All good things must come to an end. But that doesn't mean they have to go out quietly, as Saturday night's Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son show brought an electric ending to the Friends in Low Places Tour Canadian leg.

The venue was The Mansion in Kingston, Ontario, and Tim Gysin would once more set the stage for the gang. Gysin's strong stage presence behind the keyboard is one that can hardly be replicated, no matter how seasoned the performer may be. As he ripped into cuts from his new album Chapter Next..., the crowd appreciated his intimacy and passion with every song.

As Gysin took his final bow, the boys hit the stage, and the town, with a forceful version of the second track off the new album. The always popular "Danger Dan" and "New Age Outlaws" made way for a second, more polished verion of the new "Don't Ask Me Why," with Bobby bringing into question encounters of the past with the final line of the chorus, "why the hell are you surprised?"

Three more cuts off Friends in Low Places concluded with an enormous, impromptu rendition of "Scoundrels," with Bobby, Dan, Tim and Jon portraying the lost voices of those from the east side. The song was perhaps the highlight of the entire tour, and continues to be a staple in the sets.

After working through some more standards, including "Left For Dead," "It's a Long Way to the Top," and "Delicate Fall From Grace," the new "Running Away" made its return to the set once more. The infectious chorus had The Mansion crowd grooving, and the band was in control.

The rest of the set saw the band dabble in more standard tracks, though an intimate version of "Guilden Street" also pleased the crowd in the process.

"Another Deadbeat Summer" closed the night, with all the performers up on stage sending out the Canadian night in style. Between Gysin and the band, the leg was an enormous success, and big news will be following soon. Until next time...
