Went to see The Mahoney Brothers at Knoebel's last night. They were excellent, as always. Unfortunately ConcertGirl25 has to work a real job to pay her mortgage and missed the 1:30 show. At 6:00ish (all times are approximate), they did their Jukebox Heroes show. It rained the entire time, so they did less costume they were missing their bass player (Christopher LeFevre), so they had to take turns on bass.

Jerry Lee Lewis (Tim Mahoney) started the show with his hot pink jacket, which I love! He got Brian started on bass - let's go Christoper! He sang Real Wild Child and Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On. I love when he stands up in the middle of Whole Lotta Shakin' and moves his hips for us! Sexy, LOL!

After Jerry Lee, it was Buddy Holly's turn (Brian Mahoney). He came out in a gold jacket that I haven't seen before...but it was hot! My friend Juicebox wanted to straighten his bowtie half the time, though. I told her to go up and do it, but she wouldn't. Anyway, he did an extra long set and sang Not Fade Away, It's So Easy, Oh Boy (which is on my At The Hop album - the one we listened to every day growing up), and Rave On. I love Buddy Holly, so I'm glad it was extended last night.

Then, Elvis (Mike Mahoney) came out to See See Rider. He was wearing his white suit with the fringe and beads. Juicebox likes this suit the best. (Me, I prefer the black leather) He also sang Burnin' Love - his chest was a-heavin'! He sang One Night, which I hadn't heard them do before. I like when they throw songs in that I either haven't heard them do before, or ones they haven't done in awhile. :) Then they did Suspicious Minds - which they HAVE to do, in my opinion - and Fools Rush In. Revolution Man (I don't know his real name, but he dances away to Revolution) and his woman danced during Fools Rush In and One Night - They're ADORABLE!

It rained right up to the 8:30 Beatles show, then miraculously stopped-ish (we didn't need umbrellas for the show - but it was a bit damp). They wore their beige jackets with the star on - which I love, and they started out with Drive My Car - which Juicebox always finds odd for some reason. I, personally, think Juicebox is a little odd most days, so I wouldn't put too much merit into that (LOL, Hi Juici!). They had some technical difficulties during the show. It started off that Tim's (Paul) monitor didn't work and he kept trying to get them to turn it up - but it turned out that it was wasn't plugged in. The sound dude came out on stage and plugged it in. All went well for awhile, and they went on to Day Tripper, All My Loving, From Me To You, Roll Over Beethoven, I'll Be Back (for Juicebox, of course), and Can't Buy Me Love. Brian (John) then sang Hide Your Love Away while the rest of the boys changed costumes. I was actually surprised they changed clothes. Usually when it rains, they just stick with the early stuff. BUT, they changed and Mike (Ringo) came out to finish Hide Your Love Away with his recorder solo (one day I hope to play the recorder so well).

Once they were all in their Sgt. Pepper's costumes, they sang With A Little Help From My friends. Juicebox pointed out that Ringo looks pretty good for 71 (Ringo's birthday was on Friday). They sang Magical Mystery Tour (LOVE Jay's guitar), then onto Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown), Back In The USSR, and Birthday (for someone in the audience). Unfortunately, they lost their mics and Brian's guitar in the middle of Birthday. The one sound dude ran backstage and (I assume) switched the breaker back on and they finished the song. Tim said it sounded like they blew a speaker, so they had to stop. It was very sad...BUT, as Juicebox says, "They were real troopers" to continue on through Birthday without any mics. LOL, she kills me sometimes!
