|Winehouse - Counting down to the new year|
Singer Toddy Walters come on stage before her Amy Winehouse transformation to pay respect to all the artists lost in 2016. She sang 100 Days, 100 Nights by Sharon Jones who passed away in November. It seemed only fitting because Sharon Jones' band The Dap Kings played on Amy Winehouse's Grammy award winning Back to Black album. At the end of her moving song, Walters introduced the opening band.

The encore was The Specials' You're Wondering Now with fitting lyrics to start the new year from a tribute band honoring an artist that left this life too soon. "You're wondering now/What to do/Now you know this is the end." Of course, it was sung in an upbeat ska way.
See you at the next show. I will be the one waiting for the bongo solo.
