An Evening with Alexis P Suter

The Alexis P Suter Band came to Black-eyed Sally’s for an evening with their brand of fine entertainment.  Always look forward to seeing these guys.

Mom had a chance to chat with Bruce before the show.

Ray gets excited

Alexis loves her bassman























Alexis has a way of touching one’s soul with her songs.  When she sings “Let It Be” the emotion is right there.  And often brings tears to eyes in the audience.  “Knocking on Heavens Door” also has that touching tone.










Laurie and Bruce enjoying the night










The crowd was into it too.










Can’t wait to see them again.  Plus it is a quick ride to  Daryl’s House for Alexis doing the Gospel Brunch.
