Poor Man’s Whiskey brought their foot stomping, good time music to the legendary Great American Music Hall in San Francisco on Saturday March 19. Opening the evening was an acoustic version of Lonesome Locomotive, who delivered a harmonious set of their folky rock to the appreciative crowd. Poor Man’s Whiskey music can be described as “High Octane Hootenanny” which is an upbeat combination of bluegrass, rock, folk and country with clever songwriting and entertaining stage antics thrown in. Tonight the highly excited crowd was dancing and singing along to the infectiously good time music. Poor Man’s Whiskey is known for their innovative bluegrass covers of Dark Side of the Moon (shine), Paul Simon’s Graceland, The Allman Brothers, Old and in The Way, and tonight they paid tribute to music of The Eagles. Their second set evolved into a audience sing-along with such Eagle favorites as “Peaceful Easy Feeling”, “Lyin Eyes”, “Hotel California”, “Desperado”, “Life in the Fast Lane” and many others.
