On Friday night, Bryan Adams played to a standing ovation and two encores in the intimate setting of the Capital Theater. Bryan, his acoustic guitar, Gary, a grand piano, and candle lit colored lights were the only items on the bare stage. Bryan did not need much more because from the minute he stepped into the spotlight, the audience was captivated. Early on, he even commented on how quiet the crowd was. Thinking back, my quiet was a combination of feeling pretty special to be a part of this sort of “intimate living room” experience, disbelief that I was listening to a unique acoustic performance, and reminiscing as he sang hit after hit, word after word. The crowd quickly shook off their star struck trance as Bryan found them singing along and screaming requests by concerts end.
On Saturday night, a genre about face took place as I entered the High Noon Saloon ready to witness Del The Funky Homosapien on his Funk Man Tour. Performances by A.N.T., Serendipity Project, Bukue (Buku) One, along with Del, A-Plus, and DJ Zach Hendrix did not disappoint the packed house. An interesting tidbit from the night was Del’s announcement that he is releasing his new album “Funk Man (The Stimulus Package)“, which released in April, as a FREE download. You can get at http://delthefunkyhomosapien.bandcamp.com/. Del kept it real in saying that he felt more people might listen to it if he gave it to them for FREE with no strings attached!
What a great weekend of diverse music. Hope you enjoy the photos. Thanks for looking.
