Great Summer Concerts!

In my line of work, concerts tend to be…get to the show at the last minute…or incredibly early…jump on stage and warm up the crowd/pass along announcements/or be totally ignored by the audience, then get shuffled off and out of the venue before the artists even start playing.

This year, we have had a bumper crop of great shows…ones that have been a treat to watch and enjoy! Plus with the great weather, the trips to the “sheds” has been *gasp* fun!
