Review: John Buttler Trio in Berlin

John Buttler TrioVery keen I was to see them. The John Butler Trio played on the 27th of September at the Columbia Halle in Berlin. And I was there. The crowd was much smaller than for the usual concerts. Not even the balcony was opened. I really liked the more intimate feeling of the smaller concert. The opener, Newton Faulkner was just fantastic. A funny guy. Playing tap/finger style guitar like Andy Mckee does. Most amazing was his cover of Massive Attack’s “Teardrop”. I checked out his album but seems like he really is a live person. (not impressed!).

Then there was John Butler Trio. I was hoping to see them when I was in Australia. But when I was there – they were on their world tour. Bugger. So I was eager to see them – maybe a little too eager. Seems like for this style of music still Xavier Rudd is holding the bar for live performances. But don’t get me wrong – they were good! (Amazing drummer!) …but they just did not blow me away as I was expecting. Still a good concert with “Peaches and Cream” and many more songs from their highly recommend albums.

  • Also erstmal war ich ja ganz neidisch, dass Vogel und du JBT in Berlin gesehen habt, nachdem ich die Jungs in Baden Baden verpasst habe. Und ich bin's immer noch ;)

    Schade, dass sie deine Erwartungen nicht erreicht haben. Köln war das beste Konzert meines Lebens und ich hab sogar geflennt, weil's so schön war. ICH! Überleg ma... ;)
    Gruß aus dem Westen!
