Blogging Has Perks


(l-r: Jill, Me, Gina, Dawn, Lisa, Bridget, and Monica)

On Saturday night I had the pleasure of attending one of the kick offs of the North American Yanni Voices Tour.

I had already had a taste of Voices, in the form of Ender Thomas and Nathan Pacheco, at Blissdom ’09, and I knew I was in for a nice treat.  Plus, I remember how in love  my mother was with Yanni in the eighties;  his long dark hair and thick black mustache standing out in my mind.   Certainly, though, times have changed.   Yanni neither  sports  long hair nor a mustache though his musical skills obviously remain.

My friend Shelly (of Eat More Chili fame) accompanied me, and before the show we got a bite to eat.   Around 6:50pm we got to Will Call and I picked up our tickets.    We found our seats (and Dawn–whom I was expecting to be there–gave us our backstage passes.)  After a little while the concert began.

The music was top-notch. Every single musician was the best-of-the-best and it was a pure honor to watch them all play together.   Nathan, Ender, Chloe, and Leslie were also spectacular.   Nathan’s voice has the power to move you to tears.  Ender has an energy about him that just draws you in.  And Chloe and Leslie put most of the pop-stars out there to shame with their voices.   Yanni was personable and I enjoyed when he spoke to the audience, at times, during the show.

My most favorite part, though, was when two of the violinists had a play-off.  Just brilliant!

    Solid stuff, Mishi. You’re right – ‘not your Mama’s Yanni’.

    Love you madly, miss you mucho!

  7. I look much slimmer in your pictures than mine. :-) I finally got my post live. My video seems to have disappeared somewhere between my computer and YouTube, so it will have to wait. Do we have to notify anyone that our review has posted?

    So, I am so totally jealous over your photographic skills anyway … and then you get to go to Yanni Voices … and then you make this super cool (haha) video :D

    Seriously though, thanks for sharing that. It was neat to watch y’all! Had I known y’all were going, I would’ve rode my Harley down there and we could have gotten the photo shoot and the concert in together :D

  9. Oh how fun!!! You lucky girl!!

    Had a great time! Thanks for the invite. You had the sexy raspy voice going….you couldn’t have used that for the impression of me? Shoot me a copy of my pictures backstage.

    Hugs,
