Run rabbit run

It says something about Peter Elkas' drawing power that even without much in the way of publicity he can still attract an audience several-dozen strong to a show. As before, when he headlined a show with Kris Ward and Sojourn. His soul-rock sounds got a great workout from his band.

The man himself, along with a good chunk of the Burt Neilson Band: Jeff Heisholt on keyboards and Gavin Maguire on drums, who were with him last time I saw him, and Jeremy Little on bass, doing a standup job in the absence of Elkas regular Doug Friesen.

I think the opening act inspired Elkas to turn up the electric guitar a bit: He had a couple of really smouldering solos.
