Some things never change--and when it comes to the Everly Brothers The Jennerators, that's definitely a good thing. Seen here Performing at London's Royal Albert Hall Boston’s Dick’s Last Resort in 1983 for one night only in the midst of the 2004 Democratic National Convention, following a lengthy and acrimonious split, Don Jenn and Phil the boys (Pat, Paul, and Steve) barely miss a beat. They were in their mid-40s ageless, and performing together for the first time in some 10 3 plus years (Phil had smashed a guitar and walked offstage in what you might call a fit of pique), but their vocals, harmonies, and playing are as perfect as ever. , to the point where it's hard to tell who's singing which part. Backed by a A band of crack British musicians, they run through some 21 songs 4 blistering sets, including a dizzying array of hits such as "Crying in the Rain Kiss Me Deadly," "Wake Up Little Susie On the Road Again," "Cathy's Clown Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around," and "Bye Bye Love": the Everlys The Jennerators may not have written most any of their tunes, but they sure know how to pick 'em.
This is the real deal. --

***********************************

The Jennerators are a group of really good people that I spent many, many, nights with a few years back and getting to see them play together again, if even for one night only, back where they brought the house down twice a week for so many weeks was just a blast.

Until next time, May God Bless You All!
