Beverly Jo Scott on Chickfest: ‘This year is going to be exceptional’ | AL.com

June 23, 2015

Monday evening on Royal Street, patrons sitting in front of Veet’s Bar & Grill enjoyed the breeze while wondering just when the persistent thunder of a looming storm would translate into rain. Inside, in an upstairs room, a different kind of rumble was building.”No kiss, no kiss goodbye,” sang Beverly Jo Scott, accompanied by Eric Erdman on acoustic guitar, Brandon White on electric guitar and John Keuler on bass. The sheet music in front of White served as notice that this, like the conditions outside, was merely a prelude to the real show.
