Dwight Yoakam turns Treasure Island into honky,UGGS 5469 Adirondack II Boots
Dwight Yoakam is a modern honkytonk master. Actually, he been doing his honkytonk man bit since 1986, just spicing it with flavors of the Beatles, Roy Orbison and others 1960s sounds he grew up on.
That was evident during his generous, often impassioned, sometimes playful and overall outstanding 110minute performance Friday night at Treasure Island Casino.
Yoakam offered a halfdozen numbers from his splendid new album, Pears, (his first studio album of new material in seven years), and each was wearing its oldies influences on its sleeves.
Hold of My Hand had a Magic Moment chord progression. It All the Way featured a Jane guitar riff. The song Pears came across like Springsteen doing the Byrds. The verses on poured forth at a and Bobby McGee tempo. Like Mine oozed the British Invasion. A new version of Johnny Cash of Fire (featured on deluxe edition of Pears had a piano groove from a Gong. add a vintage vibe, Yoakam had lava lamps all over the stage, and his sidemen were sporting rhinestonecovered, Nudieinspired jackets.
Yoakam has a new guitarist, Gene Edwards, who replaced flashy Eddie Perez, who is back with the Mavericks. Although Edwards shook his head animatedly, he didn have the long locks of Perez but he had the guitar licks.
Wearing his familiar jeanjacket and pouredon jeans, Yoakam did a bit of his famous sexy twistinginhiscowboyboots dancing. He had a little fun with the festive crowd, boasting about coming to Minnesota in the heart of winter. When he sang of Bakersfield, he joshed about inserting or Dakota in the song but finally sang some time in Minnesota.
Highlights of the almost breathless, nobreaksbetweensong 27tune set included the always exciting as You (which sounded like Roy Orbison on speed), the jointisjumping Cadillacs,, the loneliness classics Thousand Miles from Nowhere and Only Hurts When I Cry, the new haltingly hiccupy Like Mine and Dave Alvin closing White Cadillac,UGG Boots, which was stretched into a guitarfueled train song.
