Almost a Religious Experience. For Reals.

Hello, my chitlins! I hope you enjoyed our little birthday party yesterday. There's still some cake & ice cream, but y'all completely wiped out the last drops of wine. No problemo, there's always more to be found. But who ate all of my pizza?

To celebrate the day, CruiserMel went to a concert. A concert, you ask? Yes, wonders never cease, do they?

I won't bore you with the details, but I feel it's my duty to inform the masses about this band I saw at the House of Blues with my friends, G and his family.

First, there was a set by the Robert Cray Band. Dude, that man's got some pipes on him and he was smokin' on his bluesy guitar. He also had this older-ish white man who played the organ (no, not his organ, pervs) and that guy brought the house down on more than one song.

After a quick break, we were treated to the most intense, rockin', smokin', jammin' music experience that I think I've ever been a part of. Robert Randolph and The Family Band. Oh. My. Gawd. Every player in that band was phenomenal. "Phenomenal" is a wussy word to describe how awesome they were, but it's the closest I can get right now. And Robert Randolph himself? He is clearly the hardest working man in show biz today. And he seems to have as much, if not more, fun than the audience. I'm surprised the walls of the House of Blues didn't come a-tumblin' down.

Check 'em out. You won't be sorry. Words just don't suffice. Yup, I'm speechless. Enjoy! Oh, and have a happy weekend, y'all.

Did you just call me a set of intestines? Is that your way of implying that I'm full of shit?

If so, then I am REALLY in love!

I just need to find a band for our wedding where no one in it already knows you.

Oh, and happy belated Blog-BD! I was going to show up drunk and late to sing to you (a la Marilyn Monroe), but airport security had other plans for me.

Sassy - I'll be watching our boys hopefully winning yet another one!

Pugman - WTF? Did I miss a chapter? I'd never think of calling you a bowel obstruction. Not out loud. As for our wedding band, there's a whole genre I haven't tapped into yet - Country Polka Motown with a marching band twist. Sound good?
