    The Sunrise Theatre Black Box, which only holds 250, and is connected to the 1200 seat Sunrise Theatre in Ft. Pierce, Fl.
    Looking forward to seeing/hearing Tinsley, we've been a fan for years, and he grew up in south Fl.

    Hope you enjoyed the show. I've been Tinsley fan for a long time. Caught him with Mike Zito back in December here in NH. Great show. And Zito was the icing on the cake - an incredible performer.

    Used to go see him with the Heartfixers at the Uptown Lounge in Athens way back when. He can flat out rip.

    I saw him back in '88 here in Atlanta but I can't remember if it was at Blind Willies or the Cotton Club. Great show as I recall.

    Absolutely one of my favorites. In all his playing and music, great songwriter. In addition, SO tasteful and cool use of wah in some of his songs.

    I wish I could see him live.

    One of my longtime favorites. I've seen him many times. You won't be disappointed.

    I toured with him a year and a half ago as his drummer for several months. Getting to hear his Super Reverb and 67' ES-345 rip night after night was a real joy. His set is a joy to play. He knows every nook and cranny of the United States. He's been touring everywhere for a very long time. Definitely go check him out if you haven't yet!

    What a great show last night! Even the local opener, Trouble Tribe was very good!

    Tinsley played his ES345 most of the night, doing old standards and several tunes off the new CD.
    Encore was 2 songs that he played slide with an old Gibson Moderne! All through a Deluxe Reverb. I didn't get to see his pedalboard, but he had some great tones!

    Spent a lot of time after the show talking to everyone, selling and signing CDs. gracious guy and a hell of a player. Never saw anyone play with such dynamics.

    Man, I wanted to drive down and see him. Love that venue.

    Happily attended a family obligation though.
