Far Guy and I had a date night. We dropped Chance off at his sitters ( granddaughter Madison.) He got to play ball, stare down a cat, he ate a tiny frog and a cat whopped him on the nose…he was exhausted when we picked him up after the concert.
The Buckinghams ( Kind of a Drag or Hey Baby/They are playing our song) were entertaining but really REALLY LOUD. My ears were ringing. I screamed at Far Guy “They must think we are all old and deaf.”
The Grass Roots (Midnight Confessions) was really loud too..my ears really hurt. I was sure I had busted an ear drum. Far Guy offered me our tickets to wad up and put in my ear.
Then came the guy I was waiting for Gary Puckett (Young Girl). What a huge disappointment. He does not have a bucket to carry a tune in. OR perhaps my hearing had been damaged by then.
Thankfully there was an intermission to get up and stretch. Then Mickey Dolenz ( The Monkees and Daydream Believer a salute to Davy Jones.) That was okay.
The real show finally started with Flo and Eddie or the remnant of The Turtles..they were hilarious and very entertaining. Real showman.. they in themselves could have their own show. Of course they are known for the song Happy Together.
Me and You, and you and me, no matter how they toss the dice it has to be..how is that for an old ear worm?
Here are all the old guys at the end..one of them said it perfectly. “If I had known I was going to live so long. I would have spent more of my youth getting high.” Of course in the geriatric crowd that was there..we could all agree.
The backup band was loudly awesome..I am sure they cringe when Gary Puckett comes on stage to sing..perhaps that is why they play so loud..if not their sound guy should be fired:(
