Westbury - On September 19, award-winning group Charlie Daniels Band headlined the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Long Island, for a great turnout.
They shared the stage with Doug Gray and The Marshall Tucker Band, which served as their opening act, which got the fans energized for Charlie Daniels.
He opened his set with "Southern Boy" and it consisted of such numbers as "Drinkin' My Baby Goodbye" and a cover of Bob Dylan's "Tangled Up in Blue."
One of the most moving moments in his show was when he did a fitting tribute to all of our men and women that are serving in the military, both past and present. Daniels spoke about how he grew up during World War II in North Carolina near a shipping port area, so he saw ships refilling and German boats very close from the ports.
Other noteworthy songs in his set included "The Legend of Wooley Swamp," "Birmingham Blues," "(What This World Needs Is) A Few More Rednecks," as well as a cover of Bob Dylan's "I"ll Be Your Baby Tonight."
Daniels paid homage to the late "Man in Black" Johnny Cash by performing his hit single "Folsom Prison Blues," as well as the beautiful inspirational classic "How Great Thou Art."
He closed with "The South's Gonna Do It" and his signature song, the Grammy-winning "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," which was the highlight vocal of the evening that garnered him and his band a huge standing ovation.
The Verdict
Overall, Charlie Daniels' show at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury was entertaining and a great deal of fun. They are worth seeing live whenever they are in the area. Daniels is one master fiddle player and vocalist. His show garnered an A rating.
