February 9, 2014 – Hookslide at Club Fox

It is always exciting for us to go to one of Jonathan’s concerts. On this rainy Sunday evening we head over to Redwood City for the concert and dinner beforehand at City Pub. We are seven for dinner – John and I, plus Sarah and Ryan and also Karen and George and Allison. They have great hamburgers at City Pub and I am glad that for once I actually ordered what I wanted instead of what might be the least caloric.

At Club Fox we get seats right up front.

By the time Hookslide takes the stage the venue is pretty full. I have been concerned that since it is raining that people might stay away. The group is doing two sets with an intermission. They bring back some old favorites and also sing some new songs. They are always amazing.

Of course, a favorite part for me is when Jon does his beatbox solo. The crowd is always so appreciative of this unique skill.

They are singing down in the Palm Springs area at the end of the month. Joan Rivers has asked for them to open for her again and they are also doing a benefit at a local high school to raise money for their choral program and to encourage boys to sing. John and I are hoping to make a side trip from St. George to see the high school show. (Joan Rivers tickets are waay expensive.) We are very loyal fans.
