"I Saw the Light":


Had a swell time seeing Ray Mason perform at this friendly little restaurant/pub tucked away in the little town of Bridgewater in southeastern Massachusetts. Ray brought his Silvertone as always but left the red sneakers behind.

In attendance at the show was Frank Marsh, drummer for the Ray Mason Band, currently bouncing back from rotator cuff surgery. Although he can't drum right now, he can still sing, and contributed very sweet backing vocals to a cheery RMB ode to summer, "When She Walks By." Ray writes a lot of songs that invoke a feeling of summer, and this is one of the best.

Also in attendance was Curt Naihersey, "Mr. Curt," another stalwart on the local music scene, and he also contributed a backing vocal on "I Saw the Light." Concert Going Partner and I took turns running the camcorder and so we got videos of both of these, and they are both quite fun, so scroll up to the links to the videos and enjoy.
