On June 16th, I received an email from The Englert Theatre, asking if I would be able to attend the The True Blood Event, June 17th. The  event featured a reception with author Charlaine Harris and the screening of the third season premier episode of HBO’s hit series, TRUE BLOOD.

Prior to the show, I did a telephone interview with Jayce about his new album, as well as the up coming concert at the Englert.

Jayce began his part of the event at 7:00 PM, accompanied by acclaimed guitarist, Dan Cohen. Jayce allowed me access to the stage during his performance, so I was able to watch from the wings as the two took the stage.  they played several songs from the new record, “Red Revelations,” as well as a few covers and older material.

Armed with an acoustic guitar, Jayce quickly broke his G string, prompting him to state, “I wish I had my Startocastor…”Dan played some of the meanest slide I witnessed, often taking some breath ta kingly velvet like solos.

Besides the popular, “Bad Things,” I was  impressed with a new song, “I Want You.” Jayce said that the song will appear in Season Three of True Blood.

After the extended performance, Jacye and Dan mingled with the crowd, signed posters, books, CDs and posed for numerous pictures with fans.
