Journey ~ Don't Stop Believing






OK, Here it is - My first Music Monday blog!!

This one is about our Journey Concert experience we had with our good friends - Sarah and Stephen on July 25th at the Verizon.

Stephen got us tickets as soon as they went on sale and grabbed us some great seats!

We talked for months about the new lead singer, Arnel and how amazing this guys voice was. To see him in concert was worth the whole ticket. That guy had such huge energy and was a dynamic performer and singer...VERY talented! You can go to YouTube and type in Journey and check him out.

If you liked Journey in the past...You will still enjoy their new music and their new CD which has 2 cd's...one is Arnel singing their greatest hits...He did a fantastic job! Now don't get me wrong - Steve Perry is still my favorite Journey lead singer...but Arnel exceeded our expectations!!

I am excited about posting information about music, concerts and the artists. So check back periodically on a Monday and we will have a great melody of discussion!

There might even be a give away or two going on!

Speaking of Giveaways...Last Friday I was going to announce the winner of the New Third Day CD ~ Revelation. I apologize that it was not announced...so much was going on because our oldest daughter finished up College Classes on Friday. We went to watch her last performance and then finished moving her back home!! I will have a blog about her this week.

Soooo Here Is the Winner of The Third Day CD ~~ Congratulations To: AMY at 3Cheersformom!!!

Back to the Music Monday Edition ~

Personally I love music and really enjoy hearing it live...even if it is on the patio of one of my favorite restaurants.

Music touches our lives as it weaves memories of the moment into our hearts.

You can play certain songs from the past and watch a person's disposition change. They might even get up and dance!

Yep - that is what I witnessed when we recently went to the Cheap Trick, Heart and Journey Concert. People of all ages were there...but the funniest thing to watch was the older ones.

The grandma who shook and moved like she was in her twenties was so adorable...she was a pretty woman in her 60's...and somebody's Grandma!

The other person that kept getting my attention was a guy, a few rows in front of us, who just couldn't stay seated. He was all over his seating area and probably is still sore from his aerobics that he did that day...Phew! I was exhausted just watching him!

There were many more but I think you get the picture!
I am not even going to address the visuals that we saw!!
Lets just say...You should not still be dressing like that!

Thank you Sarah and Stephen for a great night of music, memories and late night eating!
Hey Stephen - Rick also says thanks for holding him up on your shoulders so he could see better!

Ha, Ha - just kidding folks!!

Well, here is a shout out to one of our youth kids that was at the concert...Yo Pink Girl Julia!!
Hope you enjoyed the concert with your family...You guys Rock!


Well, until next time...Don't Stop Believing!

Love,
Vern

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Looks like the concert was fun. I was never really into Journey but I do like that "don't stop believing" song. Hope you have a great weekend!
