 He was in the middle of a spirited version of  John Lee Hooker’s classic “Boom, Boom, Boom,” accompanying himself on a bass drum and cymbal, keeping a steady beat as he played and danced in place. He followed that up with Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Cold Shot.”

 It was one of several blues and rock and roll classics plus modern blues tunes he played including a stunning version of Albert King’s The Hunter and an outstanding version of Gary Clark Jr‘s blues groove “When My Train Pulls In.”
