Berks Jazz Fest 2013: Jonathan Butler

At 10pm, Jonathan Butler appeared at the Crowne Plaza ballroom with his own band, he had his daughter Jody as vocalist in the band. He opened with a nice instrumental on acoustic guitar, with lots of African flavors, followed by "Many Faces" featuring some killer bass. Next were the funky "Color Green" and the great cover of "If I Ever Lose This Heaven", other highlights were "Sarah, Sarah" and especially "No Woman, No Cry" which is one the staples of his show. Next was a cool instrumental on guitar, providing some solo spots for his band, before the show was finished with his hit song "Lies", that had people get on their feet and clap and sing along.

Additionally, he was promoting his safari in South Africa which provides an experience of a lifetime, offering a safari with Jonathan Butler and his family, more info can be found at http://www.jbutlersafari.com.
