On Friday, May 18th, the tour stopped at Parx Casino in Bensalem. At Parx's new Xcite Center, Mo’ took the stage at a little after 8pm with no opening act. He opened the show and played his first three songs more or less solo acoustic. Mo’ is one of the very few individuals who can command a room armed with nothing more than an acoustic guitar and a microphone. As phenomenal as Mo’ sounded by himself, he was sounding even more so with full band. On "Just Like You", guest musician Kevin So added piano. The drums kicked in on the next song "Am I Wrong". Drummer Les Falconer had added light percussion during some of the earlier songs. The full band was in gear by song six, "Suitcase", with David M. Rodgers on keys and Keith Jones on bass. This was some of the sweetest blues you'll ever hear. Mo
