Enjoy the show!
I’ve had many musical moments at the Tempe Marquee Theatre. Last night’s show included several local bands (others not in my video). In video order: Fat Gray Cat (long time friends), The Sintrics Band (fairly new on the Phoenix scene), and Carol Pacey and the Honey Shakers (notable on the Phoenix scene). Fantastic energy and sound – all of them!
The Smithereens, for those not familiar, is an American band from New Jersey, formed in 1980. The original lead singer, Pat DiNizio died in 2017. Local singer, Robin Wilson, did a super job stepping into the role. He not only sounded great, but he also shared many stories of connecting to the music and history of local record shops in the valley that he once worked at. Most are gone. I worked at some of them too. 😁 The memories! 🎶 Live music is good for the soul. It is also fun to notice the aging crowd at some of these gigs. 😂
The Tempe Marque Theatre originally opened in 1993 as the Red River Opry. It is near Tempe Town Lake and down the road from Arizona State University.
Thanks for joining me. Be well. 💗 Michele
I want to love but it comes out wrong~The Smithereens, Blood and Roses
I want to live but I don’t belong
I close my eyes and I see
Blood and roses
Now I lie in bed and think of her~The Smithereens, Behind the Wall of Sleep
Sometimes I even weep
Then I dream of her behind the wall of sleep
