Live Review for JOEL CAGE @ The Paradise Cafe in DEDHAM, MA OCT 3, 2015
When I have a chance I'll ask my friend why he came in tonight. I mean most of my friends are usually working on a Saturday night, or have been to so many concerts that the idea of sitting in a cafe drinking beer or wine and listening to some guy play guitar and sing songs, well they just don't think it'll do it for 'em. The place filled-up early tonight, most took the seats toured the front, but some asked if they would be able to have a conversation if they sat in the back. We told them they would be fine, we didn't tell them that when Joel Cage plays, everyone moves forward. It's just what he does, draws you in. One man, one voice, one sixty-something year old Gibson arch-top, a sonic landscape, and a bunch of amazing songs. The folks who came in to have a conversation gave up, (in good way) and moved forward by the end of the night, it's what he does, he draws you in. When I finally had a chance to talk to my friend he was gone, gone closer, you can't help yourself. When I have a chance I'll ask my friend why he came in tonight, But I don't have to ask him why he moved forward. Joel puts on a show you are sure you will never see again. Every time.
