Joe Bonamassa concert in Orlando 2/20/17
« on: February 21, 2017, 07:26:16 PM »
In 2008 I went to see one of my guitar heroes Joe Bonamassa in Las Vegas. Last night I saw him again in Orlando. What a difference 13 years make. In 2008 it cost me $20 to see him from the front row. Last night parking was $25. A nose bleed ticket was $89. In 2008 I was allowed in with a DSLR and a telephoto lens. Now I can't even get in with a bridge camera. So shooting a concert with a cell phone camera is not really exciting but at least I got a record of the event. Here are two photos of Joe 13 years apart. Don't feel bad if you don't know who he is. He doesn't really release singles and has never had a hit. He has only had one album in the top ten but never the less he sells out every where he plays because he is just so amazing. His dad started teaching him guitar at age 4, by age 12 he had his own band and by opened for BB King at age 12.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Love Joe Bonamassa!  Unfortunately I've never had the opportunity to see him live.  From the tons of interviews and videos I've seen about him, he seems like a really down-to-earth, likeable fellow.

For those of us who have never seen/heard of him, he has a number of videos on You Tube.

He's been on PBS at fund raising time too, on occasion.

I miss the good ole days of going out to a concert as a teenager in the 70's. Tickets were affordable for a part-time working teen.

In the 70s I didn't do drugs, didn't drink and actually came to watch the show so I hated all the people that were just described. They had no idea how obnoxious they were, especially the girls sitting on someone's shoulders in front of me or the drunk clown continually yelling out "Free Bird". Thank heavens I can actually see and enjoy the shows now.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

He's a local boy.  Saw him play and open for local bands around here when he was 10 to 12 years old.

Have seen him a few times. Saw him last October and he never disappoints . The addition of Anton Fig, and Rease Wynans doesn't hurt either.
