Concert Week

Last week was concert week for us. We started out with Faith Hill. She is beautiful, her voice is amazing and we loved the concert. It was at the Hollywood Bowl and she had the orchestra as well as her band to back her up. Holly and Dani were totally star struck. The only thing that could have made it better is if Tim had showed up.

Wednesday Ken and I went to the Ontario Arena to hear Earth, Wind and Fire and Chicago. We went with our cool friends the Ellsworths and Hendricksons. So everyone wanted to see Chicago more than Earth, Wind and Fire except for yours truely. I have to say that EW&F was the best! Even better was the end of the concert when both bands joined together and did about 3 of each groups biggest hits together. The place was rockin', everyone was on their feet and we saw some dance move like we have never seen before and probably will never see again.

Finally, on Saturday back to the Hollywood Bowl to hear Jewel (The guy in the picture sang to but we didn't really dig him). Wow. She sings with more feeling and depth than I think I have ever heard or seen. It may be because she writes her own lyrics and music and they have real meaning to her. She was lovely. Oh and a great fireworks show at the end of the night. We loved it.

Question: If you could see anyone in concert who would it be?

Chicago, but I want to hear the real band, not the cover band (who were they? with just a scattering of old Chicago players with no energy in front singing) that played at the Ontario Arena.
