June 11, 2006 – A Joyful Sound

Last night was the much anticipated Bruce Springsteen show (about 24 years for me!). In short, it was a rock-n-roll hootenany! Imagine the legendary Bruce infecting 17 more musicians with his energy at full volume for the usual 2 hours and 45 minutes with no break and no warm-up band.

It truly was an evening of joyful, exuberant sound.

All of my favorite instruments on one stage, at one time – accordian, banjo, fiddle, steel guitar, even my old band instruments, tuba and trombone. The horn section was very uplifting. Thanks, Bruce for dragging all those great musicians on tour with you!
