Two Hearts

That's one of my favorite songs that Chris Isaak sings.  I've been listening to his music for years.  His style has been influenced by Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley.   To visit his official site go HERE.
He put on a GREAT show!  He played for almost two hours straight with only one break - for a costume change.  This is what he came out in.  It looks like a suit of little mirrors.   
This is his Christmas suit (that's what he calls it).  There was an electronic Santa on stage and it was fun to watch Santa dance to the Christmas songs that he sang.  Evidently Santa is a groupie!  How lucky is that?!?
He sings of San Francisco and I've always thought that he was born and raised there.  In reading up about him I find out that he was actually born and raised in Stockton, California, not far from where I was born and raised.  He's a few years older than me and we would have overlapped a year in high school.  Stockton schools were a big rival for our sport teams, especially football.   He didn't play sports but was president of his high school for three years.  His senior year he was Student Body President and valedictorian and head of the all-male cheer squad.  I must admit, I wouldn't have been looking at the all-male cheer squad but now I wish I would have paid a bit more attention!
He came down into the audience and stood on a chair in the row ahead of us.  I could have almost reached out and touched him!  Oh, but that would mean I'd have to jump over a few people....
Me singing along and enjoying every moment!
I'd like to thank Vada for the ticket and Alyce for inviting me along!  Alyce took all the photos used with her phone!

Do you have a favorite musical artist/band?  One that you close your eyes and sing along with?

You look like you had a wonderful time! I like all sorts of music - I haven't been to a concert for a while though. xxx

Looks as though you were really enjoying it Kay. Last concert I went to was to see Neil Diamond - probably five years ago now. X

Hi Kay, I am so happy for you that you got to go and see him perform. As for favorites, I have way too many to mention. But to answer your question and name a few: James Taylor, Carol King, Willie Nelson (I have seen him in concert), Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, John Denver, Elton John, Dolly Pardon, B.B. King . . .oh the list goes on and on, LOL
I love that you had such a great time and that it shows on your face. Good Times!
