San Diego Concert

Postby Chip » Mon Aug 05, 2013 1:22 am

Burt's concert tonight was unlike any other I have ever seen..having been to several with the San Diego Orchestra and his Valentines Day gig at the Belly Up. It was like being invited to his house to listen to his music. He was so happy..given that all of his kids were there and Oliver playing with him,,he was just a proud papa tonite. His bantor with the audience was so personal and after a standing ovation and John Pagano doing Any Day Now it was over. But Burt really didn't want it to be over..he wanted to stay but he was out of time with the orchestra so it had to end there. Josie,Donna , John and Bill all sounded really good tonight and Oliver had a blast on the keyboards. And of course Dennis and Tom were sounding great also. This has and continues to be a great year for Burt and lets hope that we all have many more with him for a long time to come. It's like that person in the back of the audience shouted out.."We Love You Burt"....we all did. Take Care all...Chip

Thanks so much for that review of the concert. I could not make it this year but thought of all you avid fans and hoped you had a great time. I love hearing from you all on here.

I could not agree with you more, Chip! Too bad you didn't post that you were going to attend; it's always fun meeting fellow Burt fans at concerts..I had the pleasure of sitting with Laura( undoubtedly the most-traveled Burt fan), Vincent ( resident VIP ), Dave a friend of Vincent's and Ron Hertel (with his usual wealth of knowledge). Alvina, we missed you !!!!

Burt was so engaging and charming; he looked fabulous and his voice was good. The audience really reacts whenever Burt begins to sing; it is hard to contain the " We love you, Burt" chants. The surprise of the evening was the appearance of Oliver playing keyboard for two songs. He was very poised and did a good job. It might not be the easiest thing to accompany The Maestro, even if he is your Dad. Bill Cantos played brilliantly "My Little Red Book" and gave it such life !John Josie, and Donna were excellent as always, but seemed to give their songs just a little extra that night. Of course, Burt's core musicians are unparalleled.

Enough of my gushing but definitely looking forward to more concerts before the end of the year.

Bonjour Heartlight & Chip.

Yes it was a wonderful Burt Concert! But way to short though! Chip I was looking forward to meeting you before the show started. Heartlight & I attended the rehearsal which was great! Met a very nice couple name Sarah & Jacob. Heartlight & I got photos with some of the band members! Heartlight & I met Burt @ his limo and took a photo with Burt. Burt asked me was this my 100 photo. I told Burt it was 101 (lol)! I have lost track of the number of Burt Concert that I have attended over the decades!

After the concert was over, my friend Dave & I got to go backstage. Talked with Burt’s son Oliver and told him it must be a great thrill to play with his father! In addition spoke with Burt’s daughter Raleigh and asked her did she have any musical genes. She said no. I told her give it some time! Burt & I exchanged a few words. A couple backstage from ‘down under’ knew me. I am now infamous (lol). Burt’s music has a way of making the world smaller for all of us!

I need to get another Burt fix before the year is out!
Take care;

Vincent

Some photos from the August 4, 2013 Concert.

These photos were taken after Burt's rehearsal, except the photo of Joise James, which was after the show.

I will add other photos later. The max I can load is 3 @ a time.
