Chris Tofield at J’s Crab Shack


Chris Tofield was at J’s Crab Shack for his second Thursday concert.  Tofield has a lot of Connecticut friends and fans.  It was a good crowd looking forward to classic Tofield entertainment.



Joining Chris were Gregg Allen on bass and Liviu Pop on drums.






Now first I enjoyed some excellent sea snacks, spicy calamari and mussels in white wine/garlic.

Now Chris hasn’t lost a step/riff whatever you want to say about his guitar skill, maybe even better.  I also thought his voice was stronger than I remember.  You couldn’t tell he was playing his 7th gig in the state and has 3 more left.


So let’s just look at some of the pictures of the night.  Most will be described in the caption.

A fun night with some fine entertainment.   With a 7 pm start, I got home in plenty of time to prep for the weekend.
