Langhorne Slim; Stomping @ City Winery live review

Langhorne Slim @ City Winery

Langhorne Slim filled the beautiful City Winery with a soul fiery epic performance. They made the 21,000 square foot space feel intimate, crazy and spontaneous. When it was over I was drenched and satisfied in Langhorne Love.

City Winery is rustic chic and spacious, filled with tables and patrons ready for music, dinner and drinks. I Franky didn't know what to expect. I have seen Langhorne Slim so many times but rarely at a seated venue.

Langhorne managed to excite all the sitters and somehow got everyone to stand, clap and dance. At one point he hopped out deep through the seats leaving the mic and band on stage. Still there was no dead air, the audience just filled right in. He welcomed people up to dance and generally orchestrated a two hour long set.

They selected a broad range of songs and mixed everything up between acoustic, solo and full band crowd pleasers like "Cinderella", "I Love to Dance", "In the Midnight" and "Mary". It was beautifully timed and selected but totally in the moment.

Langhorne naturally gives his fans and any audience his complete and undivided attention and the awesome band Malachi Delorenzo (drums), David Moore (banjo/keyboard) and Jeff Ratner (bass), kept up with his every move and that ain't easy!

Flickr Set documents the many facets of the set!
