Hometown solo concert from William & Mary College.
Bruce was beginning a two-month tour starting and ending in Virgina. He tells the story of Keith and Russell’s co-writing credit on Sunlight Moon here (and they they join him on stage for that song).
Bruce laments starting I Can’t Make You “Like” Me way too high for him but pulls it off, and gets a couple of unusual requests from the audience: Let the Girls Rock and Big Stick, and we get the stories behind both.
A beautiful cover of In the Wee Small Hours closes this solo show from Williamsburg, Virginia.
