 The new duo emphasized Zeman’s songs and new CD “Rotten Tooth.”

 He sang his stories with a gravelly growl reminiscent of Tom Waits and with just a touch of Dr. John.
 He sat strumming his acoustic guitar while Hogan created a variety of sounds on a few different guitars and a whole lot of guitar effects, which gave the duo a sound reminiscent of Willie P Bennett era Fred Eaglesmith alternative country.Blair Hogan playing lead guitar with Brock Zeman.

 They had a cluster of hard core fans at one table who made a few different song requests for Zeman’s own material including an older song “Dear Father,” which was one of the highlights of his second set.

It started out like a slower tempo Steve Earle ballad but picked up the pace.

One of the highlights was a vivid “Rain on the Roof #1” which provided detailed word pictures.
