I've only heard the boy sing on youtube, I have not caught him when he played The Prophet Bar, but this footage was filmed there - The Prophet Bar is one of the cool hangs in Deep Ellum, one of Dallas' party districts.
Jason Castro rocking The Prophet: "Crazy"
He's not been included in the crowd the "Privileged Pimped" contestants so I'm pulling for the kid to introduce himself tonight in a good way.
It will be my first time to hear Jason Yeager, a 28 year old from Grand Prairie, TX tonight as well. He's riding the Taylor Hicks flavor, saying he identifies the most with him of all the Idols in the past. Hell, who wouldn't want to associate their name with Taylor Hicks coming into this competition, the man's still holding that legendary status of rocking the show off its Pop axis when he took Season 6. Saying Taylor Hicks is who you identify with the most isn't going to help much if you can't bring the sound to match. He's the one who cried when he got the news he went through to the top 24. That's about all I know about him at this point...
Robbie Carrico, the guy going for the rocker dude title with his long hair and skull shirts but has roots in boy band pop so far just has me muttering... "poser". Have to hear the guy sing more, but I might still be muttering "poser".
The three Davids, Cook and Hernandez; I see Hernandez as possibly the second coming of Rudy Cardenas and Cook, with his splotchy hair and wanna-be Daughtry thing going on isn't inspiring me yet to think much about him. Archuleta, is just a kid, cute, nice smile, sings nice. Tweenies will love him.
Danny Noriega, now - he's a kick. Reminds me very much of a dear friend I used to travel with sometimes - our last trip was to Bermuda, some years back. His name was Kerry - he performed at some of the local Night spots in drag, sang and was a fabulous dancer. We tripped the light fantastic many times - we were known as "Fred and Ginger" by our friends and fellow party pals. I loved him dearly, he was my best friend, and I miss him very much. He fell victim to an accident and now is no longer with us... Anyway, I digress; Danny looks like Kerry, sings like Kerry, and so reminds me very much of Kerry.
Colton Berry, another kid most of us haven't seen much of on the show yet, most likely planted as early cannon fodder. Tween girls will like him. Chickezie Eze - will have to see what he does tonight. I'm not that interested in him... yet.
