Live Music

We are fortunate to live in a place that has gorgeous spring weather starting in March!  And because of it, there are always great outdoor events.  There's an outdoor mall here that has live concerts every Friday and Saturday night from April through October.  Tonight we went to the first concert of the season.  

Here's the band...
Emerald City Band

Here's the venue...
Watters Creek
...except tonight you couldn't see any of the grass or the sidewalks because they were PACKED with people.  

I LOVE live music.  There really isn't anything better than sitting on a rock, in beautiful weather, listening to GREAT live music...with ice cream!
Paciugo Gelato
Tonight I had my usual...Mediterranean Sea Salt Caramel...YUM!!

oh yeah...back to the music...they played EVERYTHING!  Don't Stop Till You Get Enough (MJ), September (Earth Wind and Fire), Oh What A Night (Frankie Valli), Dynamite (Taio Cruz),  I Gotta Feeling (Black Eyed Peas), Dropped a Bomb (The Gap Band) and my personal favorite of the night...Brown Eyed Girl (Van Morrison).

For a little while we sat behind the drummer (Kenny) and watched him up close...he was awesome!  

And then eventually we snaked our way through the crowd and watched the whole band from a rock in the middle of the grass. 15 members!  4 vocalists!  2 guitarists!  Brass!  Keyboards!  Drums!  Totally HIGH energy!  It was like a party on the grass for 3 hours.  

There is nothing like LIVE music to breathe life into you.
