Happy Birthday to Jamie
Jamie Lidell

“Ladies and gentlemen, as Jamie Lidell calls his audience, Lidell has left most of the solo improvising and experimental layering behind, in favor of touring with a five-man band. Rather than balancing roles of producer and singer-performer, the strong support allowed for Lidell to simply sing a little bit of his British-born feel good soul in a tattered blazer and size 13 hobo shoes.

Most of the band adopted the homeless theme by adorning T-shirts ripe with holes or a faded tie-dye shirt, as was the case with the guitarist. Gone are the glitz and glam of previous shows — the theme Friday at the Grog Shop was one familiar to Clevelanders.

Despite their humble appearance, Lidell and company went right to work bringing the funk on “The Ring.” After, they sprang into “Wait for Me,” which was about the hardships of a long-distance relationship, but Lidell assured us that his current girlfriend accompanies him on the road.

That blurb comes from a review of an earlier show on Jamie Lidell‘s tour that came to Webster Hall in NYC on Saturday night (9/18), his birthday. More pictures from that show (which Bear Hands opened, but we missed them), with the setlist, below….
