Concert Review

by Paul Ridenour

Pictures of the band and friends/fans

It was suggested by a fan that I write another review of A Hard Nightís Day since that last one was a year ago on 9/12/2003.  The band is no longer playing at Club Dada at this time but playing at many other venues across the Dallas Metroplex including the Hard Rock Cafe, The Irish Rover in Frisco, Lakewood Bar and Grill, St. Pete's Dancin' Marlin, and many private parties/gigs.

I thought their sound and mix was very good.  The drums and bass were especially good.  I thought that all of the guitar solos, background vocals, and harmonies were top notch. Only a good sound engineer and great musicians can pull that off.

Most of their faithful fans/lovers/band aids/Apple Scruffs were present including Elaine, Laura, Theo, Dancing Bob, TD John, Mike, Dimi, Jan, Randy, Keith, Teresa, Karen, Stephanie, Gene, Lisa, and Lucy.  Missing were Bob, Karen, Jerri, Janet, Kenny, Scott, Vicki, McCartney (too young for the bar), Jacki, Pat, Bridgett, Kelly, Julie, and Karen.

TD John and Dancing Bob got things going on the dance floor.

I met some nice folks from Garden Design Landscaping including Audrey from London, Dancing Ken (move over Dancing Bob), Karen, Debra, Eric, Heleneve, Lindsey, and Leslie.

The Bone was surprisingly not that crowded but the bandís excellent selection of songs had everyone dancing all night. 

The band and everyone were glad that Carter was back from his honeymoon and Carter started the show off with "Chains."

It seems one meets a lot of folks who graduated from BA, or Bryan Adams High School (Dallas), while seeing this band.  Here are some of the regulars from BA:
