Annabelle's Points:

A popular performer who aims to please, taking some requests from patrons. I had the feeling his set list is quite full though, since he easily flowed from one cover song to the next with little or no speaking between songs.
Tim’s style is bluesy with a southern folk-rock bent. His guitar work is solid, though not miraculous. At times the sound system made it difficult to hear the words, which is always frustrating for me. I am a lyrics maniac. Tim’s raspy voice is well suited to most of the songs I heard him play, especially Aretha’s “Chain of Fools” and Prince’s “Purple Rain”. I was less enamored of “Over the Rainbow”, though it was well received by the patron requesting it. It is hard to beat Judy’s version or Jewel’s more modern take on that song. Overall, I enjoyed Tim’s performance and was especially moved by his gracious thank you toward a shy, little girl placing money in his tip jar for her mother. I hope by the end of the evening the jar was fuller than when we saw it. 

Parker's Counter-Points:

I agree with what Annabelle said, except for one thing... I disagree with her assessment of "Over The Rainbow". I thought it was wonderful. Touching, heartfelt. It stopped me in my tracks when I heard him play it. Tim put his own spin on the song and made it his. Bravo.
