Blackjack Billy show

I'm super belated in writing this, but Scott and I saw a new band at one of our favorite venues the other week.  The band was called "Blackjack Billy" and I don't know how to describe their music without using the word "party".  It was PARTY tunes.  I only knew one song going in, but left a huge fan.  (I downloaded the entire album - five or six songs - on iTunes the next day).

Part of the show that I thought was so fantastic was that the band did a medley of about 10 other songs that we knew.  It started off with Jason Mraz "I'm Yours" and continued in a really spectacular fashion - "With Or Without You" (U2), "Don't Stop Believing" (Journey), "Lose Yourself" (Eminem), "No Woman No Cry" (Bob Marley), "Must Be the Money" (Nelly).  I'm missing about five of the tunes they included, but it was one of the absolute best things I've seen musically.  Just so well done, and with SO MUCH energy.

Highly recommend this band - love them.
