Eric Bibb - Live PerformanceEric Bibb - Live Performance
February 3rd, 2007 at the Focal Point, St. Louis

Last time I saw Eric, he opened for Robin Ford at the Touhill. Eric stole the show. So my anticipation was very high when I heard of him playing at the intimate Focal Point in Maplewood. He started the show at 8:10pm, by 8:12 my wife and I were mesmerized. Eric captured everyone’s (a packed house) full attention for two 45 minute sets and three standing ovations. Eric connected with his audience through his many stories about life on the road and shared how some songs he had written from the new album were inspired. He performed many songs off of the new album and even played a few old blues classics from the 1940’s for all in attendance including Stagolee. Eric's cd’s sold like hotcakes at intermission and at the end of the show and it seemed like everyone wanted to meet and greet him. I stayed and we visited briefly after most had left. We talked guitars and about heroes and inspiration. To me, his music is one thing, but taking the time to visit with people until the room was empty is priceless. All and all, it was another magical evening with Eric Bibb.
