Taylor Hicks 3.4.07
So you didn't get into the sold out show by American Idol winner Taylor Hicks at the Orange Peel. Did you sit home and pout about it, or were you one of the twenty-eight people who came to hang out at the Grey Eagle after the Tea Leaf Green show? If you were in the later category, you were treated to an impromtu (free) 45 minute set by Taylor and The Greyhounds, including Supertramps' "Goodbye Stranger," "New York State of Mind," "Minute by Minute," and Elton Johns' "Levon" and "Border Song." Not only was the Eagle open until 3 AM, but it became a smoking bar for two hours. Crazy....If you're in the former category, you'd probably need pictures to believe it, huh? I never thought you'd ask....in response to all the comments, this was not planned; the guys just came by to hang out with some friends and ended up on stage for part of their stay. They were all very pleasant and glad to play music for the small crowd.
