Collective Soul took the stage at Sacramento Music Festival last night, Sunday's headliners, bringing rock to the still-mostly-jazz-but-changing-yeaer-by-year festival, and with their rock music, an influx of new festival attendees. There certainly seemed to be more people in Old Sacramento this weekend than for the festival last year; I have no idea of the attendance numbers, but the streets were busy, busy, there were lines for ice-cream and food, and the seating and standing areas for Collective Soul were packed.
Collective Soul performed on the Turntable on the Green stage, and as well as the packed audience, there were people hanging out of the windows of the close-by buildings to see and hear the show.
Ed Roland said he was under-the-weather and wouldn't talk much, just sing... and he did just that. Not only the old favourites, but new songs too. Good to see (and hear) they are still creating and progressing.
Very enjoyable show.
