Today, certain phrases in our daily conversations are way to overused. Commonly, we are inundated with the description of an event using the term “super”, “awesome”, and “fantastic”; so much so the words don’t seem to have much meaning. When was the last time you were truly in “awe” of something you experienced?
For me, this past Saturday night was such a moment. Gary P Nunn has been thrilling Texas audiences for nearly fifty years and he certainly did not fail to deliver in his performance at the New Granbury Live. His six-piece band was dialed in and the intimate setting of GBL allowed the audience to really experience and feel the “true sound” of Mr. Nunn. Lots of people have seen Gary P. perform at a bar or a honky tonk, (including myself) and that is a memorable and unique, but to have him in the intimate confines of Granbury Live without the interference and distractions of bar noises, the experience was far from common; it was AWESOME!
I took a lot of pride in Gary P telling the audience how much he loved our venue and what terrific service the staff had provided him while he was here. Legends who have performed in literally hundreds of venues don’t ordinarily make such a statement to the audience. Nice of him to say so and it did make me feel like we are moving in the right direction at GBL.
For those of you who were at Granbury Live Saturday night, you know exactly what I mean. If you were not there, you flat missed something special. Starting this morning I am working to bring Gary P. back to Granbury Live. Keep your eyes peeled because you want to get a ticket to the next show before they are all gone. To miss Gary P twice…well that may be a Texas sized mistake!
