Bands


Jeff Healey will be missed.  Quote from Pantagraph.comCanadian blues guitarist Jeff Healey and his band perform in New York’s Central Park, in this July 1, 2000, file photo. Healey, arguably one of the most distinctive guitar players of our time, died Sunday March 2, 2008, in Toronto. He was 41, and leaves his wife, Cristie, daughter Rachel, 13 and son Derek, 3. (AP)”.  Even though he was blind, for me, he will always have “Angel Eyes”.  I saw him when he was touring with ZZ Top about 15 yrs ago at Konocti Resort and Spa.  It was a small outdoor venue and Jeff was the opening band.  I got there very early to watch and listen as he warmed up.  It was an awesome show.  I had originally got my ticket to see ZZ Top and was extra excited when I heard that Jeff Healey was the opening band.  BTW, ZZ Top stunk that day.

 I call this post “Wordless Wednesday” to honor him with a few moments of silent thought from me.

Great husband is driving some of the band’s equipment on their current tour.  He one of several trucks.  Rascal Flatts will be playing in Salt Lake City this Friday night.  Then on Saturday night they will be in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Resort.   I hope to be able to go to see them since great husband gets free back stage passes.  After Las Vegas, they will be in Canada for about a week.

 Here is a video of them

 I got to go to the Mandalay Resort to see Mana last August.  I had never heard of them before husband went on tour with them because they are from Mexico.  That is one of the greatest bands I have ever heard… the band ranks 6th in the world of best latin bands.  I did not understand more than 5 words the whole concert (I do not speak Spanish) but the energy from the band and from the audience was almost overwhelming!

This is what I saw that night… different venue but the same show

I will let you know if I am able to get to LV to see Rascal Flatts
