Agree with Donnalee. I’ve seen Jeff a half dozen times dating back to the 70s (w/ Jan Hammer) and this was easily one of his best performances (IMHO). Rhonda was hot!

Went to hot’lanta last weekend June 11th and saw Jeff Beck and Rhonda Smith perform at the Chastain Amphitheatre. This an awesome mix of musical talent. The concert was great including the ambience and the bass playing. Emelda May was also great and added an interesting musical contrast to the night. Look out for big things here……
