Twenty minutes before the show Mikey's family came by. Before I know it, my mom was chatting with Mikey's dad.
I come back from the ladies, and what do I see?
My mom in Mikey's arms! What the?????
Turned out that Mikey with his dad and brother and sis have been going to THE SAME GREEK ISLAND AS US! They have been going for the past six or seven years, we've been going for 35. As Spetses is a small island, we happen to have quite a lot of common friends!
Good God, that's what I call a coincidence!
But now, it was time for the much anticipated show!!!!
Here are a few pictures of our lovely Mikey singing beautifully his great songs!
I like his voice more and more, his song writing is exquisite and I think last night he gave a tighter performance than the Bedford and Basement Jam.
He gave us 11 beautiful songs and among them, his renditions of Better Me and Clever Girl were amazing.
Also, songs we've learned and loved: We Will Fix It, Tourist, White Stripes, Misery Needs A Friend. There were some people at the back who were rudely noisy, or noisily rude, but when Mikey sang Plasticine they shut up! Hehe...
As a last song Mikey sang Invisible, which I don't think I've heard before and it was a really nice surprise. Overall an honest and very talented performer! (and yes, Mikey, I AM biased, LOL, but I also have very good ear!)
And then Casbah Club came on stage!
Lordy, Lordy! What brilliant musicians they all are! Bruce Foxton was so good, very professional, smiling and feeling the rhythm and also the pulse (huge difference!)
Mark Brzezicki was a master behind the drums, providing great sound.
Bruce Watson was just great! He played lead guitar with such ease and had fun while playing with the band and with the audience. He's so sweet!
Simon was just incredible, so energetic and with that great voice of his!
The songs were all fantastic, I couldn't get enough. They played a couple of new fab songs, and also all my favourites were played: Save Me From Me, Venustraphobia, a mellow Comeback, a rocking (our f...ing b....cks off!) Sex Change, my current fave Vibrate and the highlight for me was when Mark Brzezicki gave a thundering drum solo that led to Any Way She Moves... W-O-O-O-W!
After the show I wanted to say hi to Simon, but our chevalier for the night had to drop us off to the hotel before him and his lovely Jill were to drive back home. I couldn't ask for more from that night, it was PERFECT!
My mom really enjoyed it too, she was dancing and screaming, God!
Thank you to all of you who made this night so special and let's hope we'll all meet again soon!
