Playing for Change at the Keswick Theatre, Glenside, PA
When the audience called for an encore, the band obliged with a Michael Jackson tribute involving the whole band in an exciting ending to the concert that included Bekker belting out and moon-dancing to "Billie Jean" and other tunes made popular by the late pop icon. As the band departed the stage, Grandpa Elliot was noticeably, and purposely, left at his seat. Looking a bit lost as if his guide that helped him through the night did not come for him, he gave a shrug and began singing "Amazing Grace" a cappella as he has done almost daily in the French Quarter of New Orleans. It was a great ending to a great show. This was a feel- good night as the band played, swayed, danced, and brought everyone into its culture as the tour and the musicians intended, bringing understanding and peace through music.
