What a Concert

What a big mistake i would of made if I had not gone to the 38 Special Concert this past Friday Night. I had VIP seating and was instructed to go to center aisle and walk towards the stage and my host would seat me. I got to the VIP section and was refused entrance. The Security Officer said "Get this guy out of here" and then said "Hi Tim" and let me thru. She is a friend of mines step daughter. She messes with me every chance she gets and I take it all in good stride. My host welcomes me and said "Your gonna love the seats I saved for you." I said "Oh really?" and she nodded her head. She took me to the 2nd row, 3rd and 4th seats and said, "Enjoy the concert Tim"
WOW !!! Here I am sitting less than 5' from the stage right in the center. Finally the lights go dim. You can see the stagehands, escorting by flashlight the band members to the stage then full blown rock and roll. This band , mostly intact from there begining in the late 70's have aged well. Donnie VanZandt lol a maniac with a microphone stand and wireless mic. I swear he buzzed my head a couple of times swinging that thing. This band has so much stage prescence and are true audience pleasers. They really did one helluva job involving the audience. On many of their songs you could hear the vast majority of the audience singing with them and even that was real awesome. some of the songs 38 Special sang were; Back To Where You Belong, Second Chance, Caught Up In You, Hold On Loosely, Teacher Teacher, Wild Eyed Southern Boys, Back To Paradise and Fantasy Girl. Of all the older bands i've seen, 38 Special was hands down, by far the best and they are still kickin ass. Probably my favorite moment weas the drum solo that drummer Gary Moffatt performed. It was nearly 8 minutes in length and was great. The band played for a total of 1 hour and 45 minutes and definately pleased everyone that was there. When i got outside to leave, it was only then that i realised just how loud they were. A most enjoyable night it was.
