Gun Hill Royals at The Hotel Café, 11-20-14: Photos

"Under The Covers"
Last night I was able to make it to two concerts: Lady Low at Good Times At Davey Wayne’s, and then Gun Hill Royals at The Hotel Café. It worked out well, as those two venues are only five blocks away from each other, and though Lady Low got a late start they did a short set.

Gun Hill Royals are a Los Angeles band delivering some really good country rock, with a joy that transfers so easily to the audience. They also write some damn good songs (I’m particularly fond of “Restless,” “Let Love In,” “Anahata” and “The Valley Floor”). They did mostly original material last night, apart from a cool cover of Buck Owens’ “I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail” (and you can never go wrong with Buck Owens). They closed their set with a fun, high-energy number, “Crazy Dreams.”
