The night after another big snowfall, a couple of acts had to cancel their appearances at Coffee Works. Dom got a call at 5:30 p.m. to substitute on this Friday night and put together a playlist with a few twists for this last-minute -- but very fun! -- show.
For starters, the standard Rock Folk & Blues Revue format got a switch in order, with the Folk set leading off and the Rock set taking the typically busiest time of the night for the large coffeehouse (the 9 to 10 p.m. hour). This change worked well and will probably become the norm for performances at Coffee Works. Each hour's setlist had something new, as well. The Rock set featured a shakeup of the standard song placement, including the "Like a Rollin' Stone" singalong becoming the closing cover rather than the opening cover. A couple of tunes not usually at the top of the order got played to begin that set. The Folk and Blues sets featured show debuts for Dom originals: "Williamstown" and "Blue and Black."
