Chicken Parm, Clowns And American Pie. How I spent My Saturday Night.

don and judy

After a great chicken parm dinner with the Coupongy Correspondents from Cherry Hill, the Fireman and I went to see Judy Collins and Don McLean in concert.

I fully admit I did not know anything about Judy Collins.  What I thought I knew was totally wrong.

IMG_2481    IMG_2486

According to the concert handout, Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism.  I don’t know about any of that, but what I do know now is that she has an angelic voice that thunders throughout the whole arena.  I had no idea.

The second part of the evening was brought to us by Don McLean.  I love pie.  I love American Pie.  I heard people around me comment that they were surprised that Judy Collins opened for Don McLean.  I don’t know.  Nothing against Judy Collins, but it seemed ok to me.  Probably because I love pie.

Also according to the concert handout, Don McLean has over 40 gold and platinum records world-wide and in 2004 was inducted into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.

As for me, he could have stood on stage and sang American Pie for the whole hour and I would have been fine with that.  It was that good.

And, I even spotted my dentist in the crowd getting down with his bad self!

I Went To See Kansas And Then I Went To See Kansas

So, I went to see Kansas.  I jumped in a field.  It’s a new sport that I think we invented.  Field jumping.  It’s a great way to get hilarious shadow pictures!

Field Jumping

But that was last year.

This year, I went to see Kansas – the band.  I was excited because this is not the kind of music I typically listen to.  I was looking forward to seeing them perform.

The opening band was Arc And Stones.

arc

Loud.   Very. Very. Loud.  But, one of the best drummers I’ve ever heard.  Ever.  I’m envious.  I’m jealous.  I want to be as good as he is some day.

And then Kansas took the stage.

kansas

Celebrating their 40th year as a band in 2013, KANSAS’ first public statement appeared on their self-titled album in 1974. “From the beginning, we considered ourselves and our music different and we hope we will always remain so.” Little did this legendary rock group realize that back in the early ‘70’s, what seemed to be “different,” was actually ahead of its time.

This “garage band” from Topeka was discovered by Wally Gold, who worked for Don Kirshner, and released their first album in 1974.

The band has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-Platinum albums (Leftoverture, Point of Know Return, Best of KANSAS), one platinum live album (Two for the Show) and a million-selling gold single, ‘Dust in the Wind.’ KANSAS appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the ‘70’s and ‘80’s and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan.  In fact, ‘Carry On Wayward Son’ was the #2 most Played Track on classic rock radio in 1995 and went to #1 in 1997.

I really thought I would know every word to every song all night long.  I was so ready to sing.  Boy, was I wrong.

And that’s all I knew.  I’m ashamed to admit it.  I feel like a music flunky.
