JAMES DURBIN Canyon Club 8/9/2012

This show was pretty impressive.  I’m not familiar with his solo material, but it sounded really good.   His singing was pretty unreal- he hit some great high notes throughout the set.      He played a few solo tunes before breaking out with “Rainbow In The Dark”.   It rocked.  His band is really good and they did a remarkable job with playing the song.  The guitar solo for it was spectacular, as was his actual guitar solo a little bit later in the set. 

The band seemed to take a short intermission and James came back out and said he was going to play a few songs from his album. At this point, I had to leave, but I wanted to stay to see the remainder of the show. I was bummed because I felt like I was going to miss something. I’m sure I did.

James has an incredible singing voice that’s very arena-worthy.   He could easily take over as vocalist for a number of popular bands.   It wouldn’t surprise me if he did at some point.  

One of the coolest things about this show was the crowd. The age range spanned from little kids and young adults to proud grandparents. From first graders to senior citizens. It was definitely the most mixed/ diverse crowd I’ve seen in a while at a show. I even saw an old lady with a walker that was rocking out for a while.  They had true spirit and enthusiasm.   It was cool to see. 

If I didn’t already have enough to do, I’d probably go see him again at CityWalk tomorrow night.

 

Behold some low grade iPhone recordings and some sub-standard picture –taking (I didn’t really plan well for this one)

This may or may not be representative of the actual songs he played (it’s just a guess for now).

Stand Up
Outcast
Deeper
Liberate
Love Me Bad
Rainbow In the Dark
Crawling Home

And this was a great opening act:

  5. James is a young rock singer has an awesome voice, follow his career on the internet, even not when it will come to Latin America, has its own style, like his music to young and old, sings with the heart, I think we will have a great future in the music, any genre plays very well. As for your first album I have it is a good production, all their songs are wonderful.
