Atlanta Sept 21st 2003
Back in May of this year I had written up a
review and I had said quote"
"He will be playing quite a few more shows
before he returns to Ireland. Then he returns for a full tour with his
band in Sept. I have NO doubt in my mind these shows will be very
successful. Catch him while the crowds are small because soon everyone
will know of Damien." May 17th 2003
Tonight Rob and myself attended the 2nd show of Damien
Rice. The Cotton club was the same venue, first time we saw him we sat in
the 2nd row, attendance may have been about 30 - 40 people. This time the
Cotton Club was full. Standing only to get more people in, the first time Damien
had to explain to the audience what the songs were about this time
the audience knew all the words and songs, what a
difference this was to the first show.
This guy is going from strength to strength. And only in
I managed to talk to Damien before
the show started and he remembered how few people were at his first show,
so was very pleased to see so many waiting to see him
During Damien's show, it was
SILENT. dead Silent. But at the end of each song
the Cotton Club sounded like a huge arena.
Try not to miss him if he's in your town. Till next time Damien

Two amazing guys who performed at my Birthday Bash Andrew on Vocals and

A Midsummer Night's Dream....July 5th at Lucy's Place
There really is no other way to explain or describe how special the
entire day was. First, to be amongst wonderful people and celebrate Lucy's
50th birthday. She is such a special lady, and deserved a heartfelt
celebration...more than anyone I know!
It was truly amazing to spend time with such an eclectic group of people,
fans and musicians. Now there is something that can not go with out
mentioning. The amount of talented people who performed that day was truly
amazing....7 hours of constant jamming and performing by some of the best
talent I have ever seen live.....Lucy sure knows how to pick 'em!
And then there was Simon....Simon Kirke got right into the festivities
himself....we were graced with old songs and new songs, drums and
synthesizers, and some of the best stories I have ever heard. Fans even had
the opportunity to perform with him...wow!!!! All of the musicians made the
evening so special for all the guests and Lucy too!
This day was so much fun and one I will never forget. It was such a
thrill to share Lucy's birthday with her....she really knows how to throw a
party...I'd like to see her try to top this one!
Outstanding entertainment, great food, amazing people....a real Rock and
Roll Fantasy, I must admit!
Thank you to all who helped make Lucy's day the magical one that it
was....for those who could not attend...I know you were there in spirit and
be sure to have a listen to some of the music that we all heard
live....check out Lucy's site, it is all there...you shouldn't miss out on
this stuff...real music at it's very best!
To a Special fan and friend Steve O'Hehir:
We send our condolences to you and your family on the loss of your
Lucy & all the fans
