A quick set with Jeffrey Gaines at the Bridgeport Ribhouse.

Kevin Burk asked me to come out and capture this performance.  It started out being just an acoustic with percussion and turned into a full band.  He also played 20 minutes shy of 4 hours straight!

Hopefully I’ll get to share some of this soon?  … and yes, he did “In Your Eyes” …

UPDATE April 14, 2015: It’s been almost a year and a half, so here’s a rough of “In Your Eyes” –
