  • Girlyman

    No, I’m not looking to pick a fight with you. 😉 Girlyman is a fantastic acoustic group (well, they do use an electric guitar more as a bass, but essentially, they are acoustic). I had never heard of them. Once we locked in the tickets for Spamalot and decided to do a matinée, […]

  • Spamalot

    After our wonderful lunch at The Peking Duck House, we walked to Broadway to see a Sunday matinée of Spamalot. Eons ago, it was one of my favorite movies (Monty Python and the Holy Grail). Given how much I loved the movie, and in general Monty Python, it’s a bit puzzling (to me) […]

  • Curtains The Musical

    Continuing on with our wonderful adventures this past weekend, after dinner at The Palm West on Saturday, we saw Curtains, the musical on Broadway. The main stars are David Hyde Pierce and Debra Monk. We went because our godson was interested in this, we had heard that it was pretty good, but mostly, […]

  • Alison Krauss is Awesome

    Last night Lois and I went to see Alison Krauss and Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas at the Beacon Theater in NYC. We went with our friends who took us to see Harry Connick Jr. at Radio City Music Hall. We were all looking forward to a wonderful dinner at Ruby Foos first. […]

  • Sometimes technology lets you down 🙁

    I forced myself to take my long walk today. As usual, I am extremely glad that I did, but for one thing. I walk with an iPod, with a Logitech Bluetooth headset. For the first leg of my walk, I was listening to Wicked (I know, huge surprise) 😉 but in the middle […]

  • Martina McBride Rules!

    This could easily get very long, so either settle in, or bail now, seriously! 🙂 Last night, Lois and I went to Radio City Music Hall to see Martina McBride perform. From past posts (or if you just happen to know us), you know that Lois is a country music fanatic. However, for […]

  • Harry Connick Jr.

    After going on and on about all of the live music we’ve taken in lately, friends of ours surprised us with tickets to see Harry Connick Jr. this past Saturday night at Radio City Music Hall. Neither Lois and I were particularly familiar with him. We both knew he had an exceptional voice, […]

  • The Allman Brothers Band

    OK, so last night was the night. My friend and I went to see the Allman Brothers Band (ABB) at the Beacon Theater. Previously, the only other time I was at the Beacon was for Dave Koz on Valentine’s Day. That show was awesome, but the acoustics were horrible. I suspected it was […]

  • Rediscovering Live Music

    Sorry folks, this is likely gonna be another long one. It’s 5:30pm on a Sunday, and I’m relaxing in the hotel down near Zope, and this is what I feel like doing at the moment… From my mid-teens until my early twenties, I was a fanatic for going to live concerts. I went […]
