The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.

VERY DISAPPOINTED that the Grove had changed the seating style from Cabaret with tables to set your drink on, to a packed rows of chairs, so tightly together, there was no place for your arms. There was no information given either by the Grove or...continued

The show was great! Super acoustics. Never really listened to any Lyle Lovett music before so we weren't sure what to expect. Awesome talent in the "Large Band" and the 5 black guys did a fantastic job with terrific solos, harmony and sound...continued

Description

 No one writes songs like Lyle Lovett. Finely wrought and full of wit, wisdom and Texas-sized storytelling, the veteran singer/songwriter’s catalog is rife with characters and concepts that loom large on the American landscape. 

Lyle Lovett is a four time Grammy winner and has led a remarkable career which includes 13 albums and over four million records sold. His music uniquely intersects an array of genres from country and folk to big-band swing and traditional pop as evidenced by such revered albums as Lyle Lovett, Pontiac, Lyle Love_tt __and His Large Band_, Joshua Judges Ruth and The Road To Ensenada

It’s Not Big It’s Large, Lovett’s latest collection, has been one of the most acclaimed efforts of his career. The album contains big, contemporary themes, but it is Lovett’s gift to make the deep thoughts slide down like honey. USA Today heralded his “Texas-sized cowboy jazz,” as the Wall Street Journal declared Lovett has “been widening the reach of country music for over 20 years,” while praising the “dozen new tracks that touch on country and folk as well as blues, jazz and gospel.” The memorable songs include “I Will Rise Up/Ain’t No Cane,” the poignant “South Texas Girl,” the infectious, upbeat “Up in Indiana.” and the rueful ballad “Don’t Cry a Tear.” 

For the last few years, Lovett, who is able to conjure musical magic in a variety of settings, has been alternating Large Band tours with acoustic trio and quartet shows or teaming with Hiatt as well as larger songwriter circles also featuring Hiatt, Guy Clark and Joe Ely.
