I was able to get SIMO booked in my city and had the pleasure of meeting and opening for JD Simo this past Friday night. They were fresh off recording at The Big House. What a great guy! He was real kind to me and nice to chat with about gear and music. Also got to hold and play the 1960 Les Paul a bit. The guitar was much more lightweight than I expected but super resonant and a beautiful example of a vintage LP. Of course, it sounded great when he played it. SIMO left people amazed. Literally blown away. Faces melted all over the place. Everyone was coming up to me saying it was the best show they had seen at this venue, which books a lot of national touring acts. I was blown away as well. I knew JD was a great player, but he is much better than that. The band backing him was top notch as well. His drummer, Adam Abrashoff was on fire all night and new bass player Elad Shapiro was sounding like a perfect mix for the band. Posted some low light video from the show below, Audio sounds great though.
