    Aftermath: Jonny Lang at Verizon Wireless Theater

    His band, ah, not so much. The drummer spent the first four songs trying to find the pocket, the keyboardist was much too loud and the bass player managed to look bored for most of the set. Their frequent solos (Lang generously let them take the spot...
