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)
