On this chilly early spring evening, some friends and I ended up at the Back East Bar & Grill. We were lucky to have made reservations, as the bar was very crowded, and we were looking forward to seeing our old favorites, Steele Diamond Louis and Hall.

We got the delicious dinner that we knew we'd find at the Back East, and saw three great sets of classic rock and roll from the band. It was an awesome night, dancing and singing along.

These pictures are from the last two sets. Where possible, I've identified the song being played.
