A good show from Ted Nugent and I was also impressed by opening act Laura Wilde. Way too much political hysteria for me and the cursing could have been less too. The crowd ate up his antics though and he really can still play the guitar at 65 years of age.

Brutal. Can't you just not go to each other's gigs?

A little diversity is always good!
I saw Mumford & Sons last night @ Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta. It was a last minute decision and I scalped a ticket to meet up with friends. I worked a little supply/demand and ended up getting PAID $10 to see the show. They were great. They are very talented artists. Worth every $ Smile
I saw Joe Satriani with Steve Morse as the opening act on Sep 7th at the House of Blues in Houston. Satch was great but I was really impressed with Steve Morse. It's taken me a while but I've come to love his presence in Deep Purple, and his playing technique was astonishing.

Then on September 13th at the Granada Theater in Lawrence, Kansas it was my third time to see prog/metal outfit Kamelot. They keep getting better and better and new singer Tommy Karevick is a good addition to the band. Opening acts included Delain and Eklipse. Both were good in their own right.
Saw Robert Cray Band and Mavis Staple tonight. Cray is polished but not a lot of variety in his sound. Mavis is around 80, walks with a cane (and has to sit down often), but can still belt out a tune and has Charm with a capital 'C'. She stole the show.

That sounds like fun. Orchestra hall?

That's a great place to hear music in Naperville--who did you see?


I was replying to Aphilla's question about the Wynton Marsalis and JLCO show tonight, which takes place at Wentz Hall.

Hearing the music live has so much energy.

One of my first concert experiences was seeing Stan Kenton live back in the early '70s. It made a big impact on me.

This was sheer greatness. If you are even remotely inclined and they are in your area, don't pass up this show. There were 16 musicians - all with solo ability and multiple opportunities throughout. Also sensational vocals by Cécile McLorin Salvant, a remarkable 24 year old singer. A truly wonderful evening.
Steve Vai at the House of Blues in Houston, Texas.

My third time to see this guitar master live and I continue to be amazed by his abilities. Even now that he's almost 50 years old it doesn't appear that he's lost any of his speed, articulation, or versatility.
A few weeks ago:

Marc Cohn at Hugh's Room on Wednesday, followed by Bruce Hornsby at Koerner Hall on Thursday.

Marc had a 2nd keyboard player (can't recall his name) and for this show he brought in John Leventhal on guitar. John is a great producer and excellent guitarist.

Bruce was a solo piano show. Brilliant as always.

Did they do any Christmas numbers? I have a Swing into Christmas CD that I pull out every year at this time.

But didn't they suck when they were popular--has something changed? Confused



Wha???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Eek Eek Eek

Ann Wilson had one of the clearest and most powerful voices in rock, the music was not one-dimensional like so many others, the tunes have stood the test of time well, and the band's musical talents were first class. Few people I know who like rock, did not rock to Heart!

No doubt age has been little if any kinder to them than any other classic rock band of that era, but from everything I've heard, they still put on one hell of a show! Cool
