My weekend was great. On Friday night, Hubs and I attended my work Christmas party for small businesses - supper and entertainment. Although it was not the same Abba/Elton John-inspired singing and dancing fueled spectacular as last year, the party was still good and the Eagles Tribute Band, Hotel California, was great. The faux Don Henley sounded like the real Don Henley, especially during Dirty Laundry.
On Saturday night, Hubs and I went to the Casino Show Lounge to see Dreams (A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac), which was fantastic. These people are incredible musicians. Faux Stevie Nicks was absolutely brilliant, she had the real Stevie's dance moves, microphone movements, voice and gypsy look down pat. Being an enormous Stevie fan, I was impressed. Dreams performed most all of Fleetwood Mac's hits (including my two favs Sara and Seven Wonders; Stevie does not perform the latter live anymore), also faux Stevie and faux Christine McVie did sublime vocals on Edge of Seventeen, which completely stole the show. Then, Stevie invited "Tom Petty" to come out on stage and he performed three numbers with the band (You Wreck Me, Free Fallin' and American Girl), then "Stevie" and "Tom" performed Stop Draggin' My Heart Around. Having seen both the original Fleetwood Mac and Tom Petty in concert, the tribute band concert was an unexpected thrill and fantastic entertainment. Highly recommended show to see if they are ever in your area, and $20 per ticket? Totally worth the money!
