A Nathan Bell show is a hell of a show. Sometimes people laugh. Sometimes they cry. Sometimes people just stare stone faced in disbelief. A goat once screamed at every note from the harmonica. Birds gather. In the far reaches of The Netherlands, people sang along. Near Frankfurt, Germany, the Blues caused a man to speak in tongues.

Fascists are taken to task. The working person reigns supreme. Invisible Gods are banished. The word “Soul” is used exactly once. Rainbow flags and BLM banners wave throughout the lyrics. You can hear machinery and the slow drip of sweat to the factory floor. People loosen their ties, roll up their sleeves and take care of the ones they love. The dead speak. The dead ask impossible questions. There will be honor in hard work and the poetry of living.

Pronouns will be optional. Gender unnecessary. Class distinctions are banned. Equity, equality, and parity are assumed.

One, maybe two, love songs will be presented.

Not one single song will make excuses, ask for pity, or condemn an honest and forthright human. No song will mock or punch down.

It is likely that the guitar will be played interestingly. Harmonicas will be activated with intent.

Nobody in a helmet will push the button on an I Phone. At the end of the evening there will be sweat on the stage.

It’s a hell of a show.”
