John Mayer 

Thursday, July 17, at Blossom Music Center, Cuyahoga Falls

On his new CD/DVD package Where the Light Is: John Mayer Live in Los Angeles, the guitar-slingin' party boy shows off the different corners of his career. There's an acoustic set, a performance by the bluesy John Mayer Trio, and a rock show with his full-time band playing hits like "Waiting on the World to Change." Mayer can be an engaging performer onstage: funny, self-deprecating, and a hell of a guitar player. If it all comes off a bit shallow at times, that's merely a reflection of the artist, who still hasn't settled on a signature sound. But none of that really matters to his fans, who, for the time being, are happy to follow him through all his genre-jumping and man-thong-wearing whims. — Michael Gallucci
