I forgot maybe the most memorable one of all. For a variety of reasons, I have been privy to many private concerts including Brooks & Dunn, Darius Rucker, Lee Brice, Phil Vassar and recently Jennifer Nettles. However, easily the best one occurred at a beer convention in 2004 at the Dolphin Hotel in Orlando.
It was in the exhibition room where all of the beer brand teams were showing their latest stuff, and of course, there was free beer (not really as we pay for it in other ways), free food and celebrities. It started with the O'Jays (background music) then got a bit better with the Pussycat Dolls. After that, we got the announcement to stay put for get this, TOM PETTY and THE HEARTBREAKERS. What a night!! We are still pinching ourselves that we were treated to an unexpected, free concert with Tom Petty.
