"Don't worry if you can't get a seat close to saxophonist Peter Valera. When he is busy blowing the blues, Valera is liable to leap off the stage and wade into the crowd, moving as fast as the music pouring out of his horn. But that's not surprising: This is not Muzak or easy-listening. This is get-up-and-move music, blues played in a white-hot fury, volume and energy cranked up all the way to 11. Backed by the soulful Jump Blues Band, Valera doesn't so much play the saxophone as let it sing, unleashing a range of emotions and experiences too rich and wonderful for mere words to convey. Experience it yourself when this remarkable musician -- who just released his first record Jump Blues heats things up at Lucille's Grill at B.B. King Blues Club."

Misses 5 stars because the sound reinforcement decided the sub-bass was more important than the midrange and lower midrange. The lower bass was so dominant, it prevented hearing lyrics and hearing distinctions between the excellent bass player’s moving lines. Eric and band played exquisitely. Too bad we couldn’t hear/distinguish all the notes.
Incredible show. The Cedar is family friendly. This was my daughter’s first concert. I was worried that she would not be able to see. Not a bad seat in the house. Mr. Johnson’s musicianship is second to none. The same could be said for his band. Following the concert my daughter and I were invited back for a brief hello. This made for a night that neither my daughter nor I will forget.

Eric Johnson’s performance was flawless. His supporting band members, Kyle (bass) and Tommy (drums) were absolutely phenomenal musicians. It was obvious that they have been together as brothers for years and still enjoy each other. The venue was comfortable and is a great space for such performances. The sound was “OK,” and that’s my single complaint. Such attention was paid to reinforcing the sub-bass in the mix—featuring the kick drum & lowest bass notes—that much of the upper bass range (where Kyle was playing) and the midrange (vocals & Ericks lead guitar work) was muddled. At times it as impossible to tell when the bass guitar was changing notes or to hear articulation of the guitar riffs. If the mix had been made for this program-rock trio rather than a dance DJ, it would have been perfect!

Great show from an amazing guitar player. Sony Hall is not very big, so we sit down really close and had a great view. Ah Via Musicon is my favorite album from EJ and it was awesome to see him play it in its entirety.

This is by far one of the BEST concerts I have gone to in my life. Eric Johnson and his band mates are just AMAZING. I’m so glad that I had the chance to see them live and will do it again in a heartbeat.
