The DOVES

 

Springtime in Macon

The DOVES gave our annual Cherry Blossom Festival performance today. We had a lovely time, as always. A steady breeze, building clouds, and temps in the 70s — along with the midway and open air soundstage and massive PA in Macon’s historic Central City Park — made for a perfect atmosphere. And the rain held off until we were done. We played an hour — here’s the set list (all are originals, unless designated; and can be accessed on our website, unless Not Yet Recorded [NYR]:

Maybe Tomorrow (NYR)
The Same Time (YouTube only)
Out of the Wood
Why Did You Hurt Me?
Nancy Whiskey (Traditional)
Mad World (Tears For Fears)
The Day You Were Born (video in progress)
It’s Not Unusual (Tom Jones)
Some More Than Others
Everybody’s Happy But Me
Pulse (NYR)
I Will (The Beatles)
Blessed Are You (NYR)

The band before us was really good — I wish could tell you their name. They closed with a cover of “Fly Me Courageous” by Drivin’ and Cryin’. Damn, I’d forgotten how good that song is! Almost done with the vid for “The Day You Were Born”.  The accompanying pic is from a previous CBF performance -- "Wild and Strange" and "Shut My Mouth" vids are clickable on the right sight of this page; and songs can be downloaded at the "AUDIO" tab.
