Our son's concert at Smith's Olde Bar this past Thursday night was fantastic! The name of the band is The 7's and they were so polished and professional that you would never have guessed this was their first performance EVER! They only had about 45 minutes on stage and yet, even in that time, Christopher managed to give a shout out to his cheering (and sometimes crying) Mom and photographer Dad in the audience. What a guy!
Why did I cry? I couldn't help but wipe away a few tears...after all, C. played a great guitar, and sang some wonderful songs...all that he had written! Two of the songs were completely his own, the rest were co-written with the young man with the blue guitar, Tim. They sounded so good singing together, their harmonies were just a joy to listen to... it was as if the Beatles and the Beach Boys had gotten together to jam. I am not kidding! Wes on the bass guitar and Jim on drums brought the sound all together into a masterful performance.
One thing, it was so dark that it was a bit difficult to get a good photo, even for Richard, but I have some on here for you to get an idea of what it was like. The band only played two cover songs and one of those was "There She Goes" which is a song by a band from the late 80's called The La's. Believe it or not, the 7's sounded just as good as this video clip I have here for you! This video is NOT the 7's but I hope that C. will be able to supply me with a link or video for you soon! Smith's Olde Bar really liked the band, they have been invited back for another gig in September! Yay!
