Steve Keenan and Paul Kype fill in for cancelled Windy City Opry revival


 Steve  Keenan and Paul Kype played a spontaneous set of  familiar hits at t  a last minute show  at the Slice, Friday, Sept. 10.


 They were called in to replace a cancelled revitalized Windy City Opry and as expected played an intense set, making enough noise for three or four guys instead of two guys with guitars.

 They took turns singing lead vocals and trading leads on a set of  classic rock and blues though Keenan snuck in one of his originals “Lucky One.”


 Their set was familiar Kype sang Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man,” Neil Young’s “Rust Never Sleeps” and several Stevie Ray Vaughan songs.


“Can’t You See” was another highlight in a set full of highlights.

 There wasn’t a great crowd, but a couple people had never seen the duo perform and were justifiably impressed.


They wound up their set with Kenny Wayne Sheppard’s “Blue on black.”
