LIVE LUNCH BREAK FLASH­BACK - THE SUE MEN­HART BAND

The Day - - DAYBREAK -

For the sec­ond year in a row, The Sue Men­hart Band per­formed a SRO show in the Hy­gienic Art Park for The Day's "Live Lunch Break" con­cert se­ries. The long-run­ning, es­timably great blues-rock group, an­chored by the mon­ster vo­cals and song­writ­ing prow­ess of Men­hart, of­fered a dozen tunes from their cat­a­log — and in­cluded a few songs from an up­com­ing al­bum. In con­ver­sa­tion be­tween sets, Men­hart di­vulged she's au­thored a memoir on "How not to suc­ceed in the mu­sic busi­ness" — a funny and self-deprecating ob­ser­va­tion that's also not re­motely ac­cu­rate. Suc­cess is a rel­a­tive term and, in the arts, of­ten based on luck. The col­lec­tive hap­pi­ness on the faces of the Lunch Break crowd were more than in­dica­tive of the suc­cess earned by Men­hart and her ex­cel­lent band — bassist Dave Foret, drum­mer Kevin Clark and gui­tarist Don Berg­eron. As al­ways, we archive our "Lunch Break" shows and all of them are avail­able for pe­rusal at theday.com.
