Orbison silently took to the stage around 12:30 and began his set. Heads bobbed and bodies writhed to the deep bass all throughout the bar. Joy’s concentration was evident in his always-furrowed brows. He worked his set up and he occasionally glanced up to smile at the crowd.
He had the whole bar in the palm of his hand with a flawless set complete with smooth transitions that made it easy to get lost in the electric sounds.
