I got to see the Del McCoury band at play at the Miami University Hamilton campus last Sunday afternoon. One of the tightest performances you will ever see. Such a great show every song is a keeper. The crowd was so fired up that for most of the show Del just took requests.
Some woman asked for Rocky Top but he declined on that one
All you can say about the mandolin work of Ronnie is that it is excellent and totally unique. He has his own style and he is a master of the discordant notes that he just adds whenever he feels like it with no effort I guess.
I was too far away to see exactly what he was playing -- he had a Gibson of some king -- if it was his Loar that thing must be in like new condition.
I will guess it was a DMM he had that afternoon -- whatever in his hands it was very inspiring.
And the singing is excellent with the addition of Jason Carter (bass) the band now has 4 top line singers with Ronnie and Adam Bartram (fiddle) in additon to Del. Rob can sing but doesn't much. Be sure to catch them live if you can.
