[ADULT CONTEMPORARY ROCKABILLY] Before seeing Chris Isaak live, all I knew about him was “Wicked Game.” Yes, that song is good enough to carry a whole career, especially when so many of us were introduced to that classic, sexy croon via David Lynch’s oft-misunderstood masterpiece, Wild At Heart. But catching him live at the zoo last summer, I was stunned at not only the strength of his material but his consummate showmanship. That doesn't just go for Isaak, but his whole band. Singing, dancing, playing, telling jokes, choreographing routines and rolling with the punches, these guys put on a show that 99 percent of bands these days never had the inclination nor apprenticeship to even consider.
