Another bonus at the show was Tarin’s frequent use of the Elias Center’s upright piano. Most working bands don’t have the luxury of traveling with their own acoustic piano, so he was clearly enjoying knowing it sounded great in there.
Next time Royal Benson (or any band with dance-inducing proclivities) plays there, the Elias Center might want to consider pushing back the balcony pews for some dancing. That said, most folks will probably remain in their seats to enjoy the show. (“Not a bad seat in the house” holds true there.) It’s a concert venue unlike any other in the Valley. And word has been getting out.
