Best known for his brilliant work with the Fabulous Thunderbirds and his stellar collaboration with his late brother Stevie Ray, guitarist Jimmie Vaughan packed his 5-piece backing band onto the outdoor stage at Beale on Broadway last night in front of a packed house. In fact, the venue was so full that a large crowd of spectators chose to hang out in the adjacent parking lot to watch the show. It gave the entire event a sort of block party vibe that was very cool. And what a show! Even at age 59 Jimmie is a fire-breathing guitar slinger and it’s clear that he’s still having a blast. I can only hope to be so lucky.
