The inaugural Fool’s Paradise event took place this past Friday and Saturday at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre in St. Augustine, Florida. On Saturday night, Chris Robinson presented a set from his all-star Soul Revue featuring George Porter Jr. on bass, Nikki Glaspie on drums, keyboardist Ivan Neville, Eric Krasno and Neal Casal on guitar and The Shady Horns.
Robinson’s band kicked off the set with “Get Out Of My Life Woman” by Allen Toussaint and followed up with Joe Cocker’s “Space Captain.” The performance rolled on with takes on Otis Redding’s “Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa (Sad Song)” and The Coasters’ “I’m A Hog For You Baby.” It was then back to Toussaint material for “Sneakin’ Sally Through The Alley” which led into a scorching rendition of “The Letter.” Snarky Puppy keyboardist Cory Henry then joined in the fun for “Hard To Handle,” “Magic Carpet Ride” and “Turn On Your Lovelight.”
