Burt in Biloxi

Burt and his band played the Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi, Miss., on Jan. 11, and for the first time in nearly 10 years, I was lucky enough to be in attendance. I’m happy to report the performance was terrific from start to finish. Both Burt and band were in fine form, and it was nice to hear a few new-to-me performances, such as a soulful update of the old Etta James track “Waiting for Charlie (To Come Home)” courtesy of vocalist Donna Taylor and “My Little Red Book,” which got a full-length rendition featuring keyboardist Bill Cantos on vocals. Burt said at the beginning that he’d be performing both old and new songs, and he didn’t disappoint, including two songs from the musical “Some Lovers,” his recent collaboration with Tony Award-winning lyricist Steven Sater.

Burt closed out the evening with his traditional encore, a crowd-pleasing sing-along version of “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on my Head.”
