Hall of Fame: South Shore saxophone player Seth Hall gets call to join Live at Lakeview’s opening show
Seth Hall answered the call.
The headlining band for the opening of the Thursday night Live at Lakeview series, Raymond Victor Band, was in need a player and Hall, a skilled South Lake Tahoe saxophonist was ready to step to the stage. Most of the concertgoers at the Lakeview Commons had no idea Hall had never played with the Bay Area band until the June 25 show as he seamlessly added to the ensemble, which played blues and R&B songs, many of them Victor originals.
“He is the best keyboardist I have ever played with,” Hall said between sets. Hall said was careful not to jump in with solos at the wrong time, nevertheless, he still played plenty of them, and he clearly enjoyed his unexpected moments in the spotlight, tipping his hat and waving to friends in the audience.
Now in its fourth season, Live at Lakeview is free throughout the summer on Thursdays from 4:30-8 p.m.
