WHAT A SHOW!! Branch Entertainment was fortunate to see Boney James in action at the Ferguson Center for the Arts in Newport News, VA on Wednesday, April 10, 2019.
One thing that caught my eye about Boney James was his stylish black brim hat. It was pulled slightly downward to his eyes giving him a cool and suave appearance.
Boney James performed a spectacular show with his talented band. In performing his songs at different times, he played with 3 of his saxophones, the Soprano, Alto, and Tenor. This was awesome to see.
In his show, Boney James had exciting surprises such as; there weren't any intermissions, he came off the stage playing his sax grooving with a fan, the fan reciprocated in grooving with him. It appeared they were having a good time as the audience looked on. He walked around the theater from front to back playing his sax and surprisingly stood up on a chair in the middle aisle of the theater. Then he returned to the stage grooving with the lead guitarist in song and it appeared the audience just loved it. There were other exciting moments in his show that would knock your socks off.
It appeared the audience enjoyed the show with exuberant vitality, clapping of hands, singing along when he played "Sweet Thing" and they displayed their appreciation of him by a standing ovation.
To name a few of the songs he played were: Tick Tock, Body Language, Send One Your Love and by Chaka Khan - "Sweet Thing" and many more songs.
The consensus is Boney James is on Branch Entertainment Must See List because his show was energetic, engaging, stupendous, creative, and entertaining.
