OK, it’s gonna snow on Valentine’s day — maybe another foot or more. You could amp up the #Snanger OR you could chill by the fire and take your sweetie pie to see Booker T. Jones next Saturday (2/21) down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.
What could be more romantic than a concert with the greatest Hammond B3 groove-master of all time (and a Grammy-winner and Rock n Roll Hall of Famer) in a gorgeous fully-restored, historic theatre, built in 1912 (same year as Fenway Park) with perfect sound?
Well, here’s what’s even more romantic than that … local rising stars Sarah Seminski & Eric Reardon are opening the show. Here’s a video of them performing “Try A Little Tenderness” at the Larcom back in November. Now, Otis Redding recorded with Stax Records at the same time as Booker T. & the M.G.’s, who backed Otis on his version of this song. Romance will just envelope the whole place next Saturday. Get tickets here.
