Starlight Bowl Concert

I joined my brother, his wife, and my two oldest kids, at the Starlight Bowl (outdoors venue) in Burbank last week to see two tribute bands: The Petty Breakers (covering Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) and DSB Band (Don’t Stop Believing, the world’s #1 Journey tribute band). My brother is a musician (but not as his profession). He writes his own songs (lyrics and music), plays several instruments, has played in a band for years, and is working on his fourth CD, a solo undertaking, so he knows his music. Me, on the other hand, not so much. No musical talent whatsoever, not one tiny bit, nada. But, I thoroughly enjoyed our night under the stars listening to two fantastic bands. DSB’s lead singer, Juan Del Castillo, has an amazing vocal range – utterly amazing. While most of my photos turned out blurry, I did manage to get a few I wasn’t entirely unhappy with. The one below started out blurry, but I played around with it a bit and rather like the result!

Our surprise guest, this drone, zoomed in up close and personal and rather freaked us out at first, before we realized someone from the Petty Breakers was controlling it and recording the audience and band. Kinda cool, huh?!!

The gallery below includes shots of both bands. The Petty Breakers led off, followed by DSB Band. All in all, it was a fantastic night out in Southern California, land of endless things to do! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    Wow, the photo of the lead guitarist for the Petty Breakers is really cool. May have been a fuzzy capture it but conveys energy, just like a rock band should.

    The drone would make me nervous. Good pictures.

      It was a bit unnerving at first! Thank you for your compliment 🙂

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
