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!
