First off, Buddy Guy is an angel sent from heaven! He is truly a magnificent man!

Over the years I've attended a number of concerts, where bands from different genres impressed with their unique character, yet none of them came even close to what Buddy Guy did on the stage tonight.

For me the man has two faces - the old grumpy man who shoots orders at you with a strict voice that roars respect somewhere deep from his chest - the second is a humoristic twenty-something voice that fools and teases the crowd while the body plays an almost stand-up comedy show. Ok, ok there is a third character - the romantic one, or the story teller - a true bluesy deep voice that rips open the heart and pulls out the listener's soul. Exceptional man!

As to my seat - I was seated at a balcony just above the stage. Massey Hall has one of the best acoustics, hands down. Also the atmosphere is intimate, people are engaging into communication with the performers, cracking jokes etc... Definitely this concert was one to remember. It is incomparable to anything else and I hope to attend next year if he comes to town (he comes every year for the past 10 or so).

Oh, one more thing... Buddy played not only his great songs but also - Hendrix, Clapton, Muddy Waters, Marvin Gaye the list goes on ... I think the crowd could easily listen to two more hours. In addition his band was excellent! The keyboardist did a couple of insane solos. Bassist, drummer, guitarist, well, everyone was spot on onto every gesture that Buddy, like a conductor, requested.

Young Jonny Lang played a couple of really nice solos (didn't sing at all) he is definitely talented (brilliant) but his presence was shadowed by Buddy even though the later was hands down when Lang showed of his skill with some lighting fast moves. Lang is very emotional and he feels the music. Definitely interests me to see his performance in the future.

On the other hand Buddy Guy is not playing alone! On stage will perform one of the big names in modern blues music - Jonny Lang. I've been a fan of Lang for well over 3 years now.

Two birds with one stone as they say!

PS. It is Buddy's new album - Rhythm and Blues so lets see how that goes.

I'm going to see Buddy Guy! He is one of the most influential blues performers of our time! After seeing B.B.King a few years ago, I think it is time to pay Buddy a visit at the awesome Massey Hall here in Toronto!

The venue is supposedly one of the most intimate in town and it is said that its acoustics are amazing!
