At our first show of 2009, Junior Brown played to a full crowd at Boulder’s Fox Theater.
Bringing his signature instrument, the guit-steel, Junior proved once again what an incredible and talented musician he is.
Opening the show were the Hillbilly Hellcats, who had opened for Junior ten years ago as well.
“Ladies and gentlemen, Junior Brown!”
“How’s everybody? It’s good to be back to Boulder it’s been awhile since our last little visit. Are we ready?”
Broke Down South of Dallas
“Oh yeah, that’s what I’m talking about.”
My Wife Thinks You’re Dead
“Thank you so much folks. Quite an orchestra. I’m awful proud of them.”
I Hung It Up
“Turn that bass down, it’s blasting me. Yeah, we’re in a tunnel as soon as we’re out I’ll sing this song. It’s no good in a tunnel, it needs to be in daylight.”
Long Walk Back to San Antone
Give Me A Little Old Fashioned Love
“Ain’t hard to see how a guy like me…”
Names and Addresses
Hillbilly Hula Gal
“I left home for the first time…”
Level Two Chili
“All the astronauts from Boulder, Colorado. Old friends of mine from way back, I mean way back.”
“I’m Junior Brown, thank you!”
After a brief break he came back out on stage and said, “Thank you! Yeah, we’ll do another one.”
After a few suggestions he said, “I don’t remember Guit-Steel Blues. No, someone else didn’t write it. I’ve seen a few guit-steel players, there only used to be one. That was me, I remember it that way.”
The crowd offered a few more suggestions.
“I could maybe peel some taters. Do you guys remember how to peel taters? That’s another instrumental we’ll play it in a sec.”
He said that the next song was on his first record, “a little record with a big hole in the middle.”
