Oh, that's gritty. 33 and 36 are my favorites in this group. 36 is right on: 
timing is perfect, maybe a little too much light coming from behind his 
head. Keyboard man didn't show up at my jazz night this past Tuesday; maybe 
tomorrow. Of my music shots from last week,
is the one I like best, but it is quite a different vibe from yours: could 
it all be lighting? I have come into a couple of rolls of Ilford 3200 in 35 
mm (I've only used it in 2 1/4) and maybe I'll try to blow some of that out 

I like your group of shots: the shouter, simon says, has got it going on, 
too, snapping fingers and all. The piano man rocks.
