Oh yeah! Great player, like his lyrics, especially the double entendre's.
Yeah man Tab is legit.
Seen him a few times.
He comes around pretty regularly.
Tab. Big time. And his thin lines.
I've seen Tab once, about 2 years ago here in Houston. He was amazing! Very funny too... one of those guys you just want to hang with. He was freekin' incredible.
Saw Tab Benoit in a blues bar in Vancouver in the late 90s. Always loved his records, but he was amazing live. My son had a smoke with him on a break and mentioned to him that Mick Taylor was playing in town too, and we chose seeing him. He said he was humbled that we chose him over Mick . So not only a great guitarist, great singer and great songwriter he is a great person, very humble and gracious. He also had a cool custom made 3 door pickup truck that they toured in. I’m still a big fan today.
Tab’s cool...I’ve seen him in New Orleans & Portland
big fan, seen him live a few times now.
If anyone is in Southern California and wants to see him in a very intimate venue he is playing again in San Juan Capistrano at the Coach House on October 25. Cannot recommend that show enough. Worst seat in the house is probably 30 feet from the stage....
Big fan here! Just my style....
He likes courvoisier , fishing and teles. What more can you ask.
I really like him! I saw him live about a year ago and it was great in concert... very interactive with the crowd and REALLY funny!
It is a party when Tab plays.
I wasn't a tele guy until 2008, and blues isn't what I listen to primarily, so I didn't know about Tab Benoit. And even after discovering the world of the tele, I wasn't crazy about the '72 Thinline. A pearloid pickguard is not my favorite, and besides, that pickguard to me has a weird-looking shape, like an amoeba with its pseudopod extended. And to me full sized humbuckers just didn't look right on a tele.
But all of that changed for me about 6-7 years ago, when I heard "Shelter Me." I've never heard him in person, but I like his playing, and he sings well, too. And he's gone a long way towards winning me over to the '72 Thinline. From what I understand, he has several, but that main axe has such mojo, it's hard for me to look at it and not think it's cool.
Yep. Great player.
I’m a big fan! Haven’t gotten to see him in concert yet. Hoping he hits Michigan in 2019.
He's very good at what he does, but I'm not a fan, too polished for the style of blues that I like. His songs just don't grab me in any particular way.
Tab's rhythm section is to die for. Louisiana, man.
I have seen Tab twice at Kalamazoo's State Theatre and he was great! Tab says' he does it old school, Thinline into Cat 5 amp (Super Reverb) with no pedals just fingers, pick and volume nob with no reverb!
Fantastic player. He is old school in his choice of tone & setup.
Would love to see him live...
I've been a fan since early, early in his career. I've probably seen him more than any other band/performer except ZZ Top (over a dozen times)...I've seen him at festivals, tiny little dive bars, big theaters, and he's rocked the house every time. The only time it wasn't great, it was still pretty dang good--he was having problems with his amplifier, and when we talked to him afterward, he was obviously ailing.
I've got 90% of his catalogue of recordings.
Great singer, great guitarist, excellent songwriter, amazing performance.
Even my wife is a fan (we have differing tastes in music--there are overlaps here and there, but she's primarily a fan of 80's pop-rock)...she admits she was first a fan because she thought he was handsome (I know she thinks he's attractive, because he and I look nothing alike ), but she actually listens to his albums and she never does that unless she actually likes the music, too)...
