Mississippi born Terry Evans took to the stage with little fanfare. However, after the first song, "I Wanna Ball", it was evident the Boulder Station blues train had another winner on board. This blues, gospel, and soul band then went into Little Walter's "My Baby". The gospel song "Come To The River", written by Evan's late wife; and a song all could relate to, "Credit Card Blues", helped the band with a fine first set.
"I Fancy You" opened the second set followed by Wilson Pickett's "Don't Let The Green Grass Fool You". This was a good choice, as Pickett's "Mustang Sally" or "Land Of A Thousand Dances" is usually covered. The Terry Evans Band also played "Mississippi Magic", the title song of their newest CD, and "Dance With Your Belly Up". The latter being a soulful funky tune that got the crowd up and dancing.
The band contributed "Down In Mississippi" which Evans recorded with Ry Cooder for the Crossroads movie soundtrack. It was Terry Evans' first big break. The last song of the show was "One Way Ticket To Memphis". After a night of the Terry Evans Band I was expecting to walk out of the Railhead and onto Beale Street looking for some great southern barbeque.
