I finally got to see Keb'Mo' play live last night at Ohm Nightclub (Hollywood and Highland) for a pre-Grammy party for the Whole Planet Foundation Benefit, helping people through global microlending programs. It was a great party, with a whole bunch of great performers (Rocky Dawuni- awesome, Magnolia Memoir, The Mariachi Divas, etal), but when Keb'Mo' played, it was REALLY something special. Playing a bunch of songs from his newest (and Grammy nominated) album BluesAmericana, he mesmerized the room.
It almost got the room to shut up for a performance even. Almost. He is just the real deal. So, so good, so so true, so so legit. I loved it. I also loved that it seemed like half the party was friends who had also made the trek from Venice.
A great night, for a great cause. The very best kind of outing.
