Taylor Hicks Tour: Bon Temps at Beau Rivage

Video and review of Taylor Hicks Band at Beau Rivage Theatre courtesy of Bonnie Cheung; original photos provided by Louise/4tay

The Taylor Hicks Band performed at Beau Rivage Theatre in Biloxi, Mississippi on February 26, 2011.  I watched and listened from the fourth row, and enjoyed subtle differences in the delivery of some favorite songs compared to prior shows. 

“Nineteen”, the story of a fallen soldier, was given an emotional delivery by the entire band; heard not only in the vocals, but in the haunting flute play at song’s end.

“Why Can’t We Live Together” was given a different feel and arrangement at Beau Rivage with a striking saxophone solo.

“Maybe You Should” is a signature song that at Beau Rivage was delivered with quiet passion.

Another original Taylor Hicks song “Hold on to Your Love” was given a new treatment with falsetto addition.

“Just to Feel that Way” was the first single released from the self titled 2006 debut album; I believe this was the first stateside performance of the song since the 2007 national tour!

Taylor and his band have a way of making the music fresh and new at each show.  That’s why I keep coming back for more.

    So funny, when I hear that either Bonnie or Ragsqueen are going to a show, I don’t feel so bad when I can’t be there. 🙂 The SP is chock-full of great videographers and great photographers, and I am so appreciative that they share with the rest of us.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I always enjoy watching the various videos from Ragsqueen, 4Tay, Missy, Bonnie and the other lucky concert attendees. Especially since the videos are all from different angles each of which provides a special and unique touch to the familiar songs.

    Thanks Bonnie.

    Why oh why hasn’t he done “Maybe You Should” where the world can hear him?…like on a guest appearance at American Idol?? This should have been his single…What a great song, and he can sing it like no one else would ever be able to…..What a waste.
