The 253 Boys Rock Out at The George Harrison Tribute Show

The 253 Boys, with Rick Reil now on drums and special guest Mark Bosch (guitarist of Ian Hunter’s band) turned in a blistering set including the Harrison/Clapton co-write “Badge” (by this time, the backstories of songs not immediately associated with George had turned into audience participation time, and asking the crowd if anyone knew how the title came about). Continuing the Clapton-association theme, the band followed suit with “Savoy Truffle”. A meld of “Within You Without You” & “Tomorrow Never Knows” (perhaps inspired by the coupling on the Beatles own LOVE album) included an imaginative rap interlude, delivering one of the evenings real knockout punches. Turning to Harrison’s post-Beatles work, the band continued with a medley of “This Is Love” and “You”, closing with a rousing “Wah-Wah” evoking memories of the 2002 stage rendition from the legendary 2002 “Concert For George”.
