The Rant Band
City Winery presented iconic Texas troubadour Alejandro Escovedo and the Rant Band performing an extensive playlist of Ian Hunter songs in celebration of the Hunter’s birthday.
The band along with Escovedo had the audience rocking from the first song until the very last when various artists that have worked with Ian Hunter, Mott the Hoople and The Rant Band pitched in during the evening in celebration of Hunter’s songbook.
Escovedo did a stellar job performing the songs of Ian Hunter with an occasional anecdote or story about the songwriter’s and their interactions through the years.
The evening was not without surprise guests and everyone having a story to tell about Ian Hunter and in general having a great time performing to an appreciative audience. It was an entertaining evening to be sure and the band played well along side their guest lead singer for the night.
