Based on some recommendations from some locals...We decided to Check out Jim Stafford Theatre on NYE. I thought it was Great. It never Dawned on me that he was the "I Dont like spiders and Snakes" guy till after we got inside the theatre... Or I probably wouldnt have bought tickets and went to the show. I vaguely remember that tune playing on the AM radio in my parents car..When we would go places when I was like 5 or 6...I liked it then....But now?
I looked around the room...Mostly an older crowd I noticed...I looked again....I was the Only Black person....I was sure I had made a mistake in my show selection...But it was too late now.
The lights Dimmed...Jim Started Playing...in the dark....All of a sudden...a Brilliant laser Beam shot out of nowhere...and a Spotlight shone on JIm...Highlighting his fantastic guitar playing, and the mood was set.
Jim is a fantastic entertainer, and it shows. He loves entertaining and it shows. His act is well polished or well worn, depending on your perspective. I totally enjoyed it though.
His Kids a 19 yr old Boy and 15 yr old girl are fantastic piano players and entertainers in their own rights also, and were an enjoyable addition to the show.
So I guess thats what I meant by Judgng a book by its cover, Had I read some of the other reviews on here first criticizing his act, or his theatre, or whatever, I probably wouldve passed, thinking his show wasnt for me...and I wouldve missed out on a great night of entertainment, by a great entertainer, and my mom wouldntve got a neat souvenier sequenced hat from the gift shop.
