It was a BLAST. It was BRILLIANT.

It was FREE.

Thank YOU (again) to the amazing “William H. Gile” Trust
that put on these FREE concerts in Concord, NH.


This was an unexpected bonus. I had NOT heard of this concert until quite recently when I got a flyer, in the mail, from the “Capitol Center For The Arts” (since I am a patron). I thought it would be too late to get tickets, but I managed to get 4 though they were not the great seats I have managed to get to “William H. Gile” concerts in the past. I had never heard of this ‘concert’, so was not sure what to expect.

So, so GLAD we went. It exceeded all expectations. Kind of a hybrid ‘tribute band‘ cum ‘legends in concert‘ mix that just covered songs from 3-years, viz. 1967 to 1969 — the “Woodstock Generation“. They really went to town. Talk about over the top energy. Very, very well done. This was my music.

I would readily go and see them again; even pay to see them. But, noticed on their Website that they don’t have that many gigs. They could be expensive to hire. A LARGE cast. Typically 15 – 16 performers on the stage. I heard the cast was close to 20.

It was a good night. The theater was fairly well packed. Some empty seats. That surprised I. Folks missed a great event.

Thank YOU, “William H. Gile” Trust. Much appreciated.

“Legends In Concert” Tribute Performance — Excellent, Very Well Done.

Went to this “Legends in Concert“, tribute performance at ‘Foxwoods‘ on New Year’s Eve (i.e., December 31, 2016) during our 5-day stay at ‘Mohegan Sun post-Christmas.

It was very slick. Very professional. Immaculately produced and the performers really put their hearts into it. We have seen quite a few tribute shows in our time and this was, indubitably, one of the best, if not the best. Yes, of course, you can’t get the same quality and level of production in Wolfeboro as you can at Foxwoods.

Paul McCartney was supposed to be in the lineup but it appears that he did not do any of the post-Christmas shows in Foxwoods. Appears he was called upon, by the management, to perform at another venue. Though that was disappointing, the rest of the cast sure made up for it.

In my opinion ‘Michael Jackson‘ was 20 lbs too heavy, but he did a really remarkable job. I am not that familiar with ‘Taylor Swift‘ but was told that the impersonator was way too tall! But, she was good.

The show wasn’t packed. But there was, however, a lot of other stuff going on.

Glad we went. Quite a nice way to build up to New Year’s Eve. Highly recommended.

We went to ‘Foxwoods‘ (just 25 minutes away) on the second day of our 5-day stay at ‘Mohegan Sun’ post-Christmas. The main goal was to check out the ‘new’ Indian Museum, but that was closed. So we got to explore the ‘resort’ earlier than we had hoped. We had stayed there a few years ago and wanted to see how it was no vis-à-vis Mohegan Sun. [Teischan and I had had gone to the buffet there in August during our trip to Mystic, but we hadn’t spent much time there because it was late.]

I saw the signs to this Beatles exhibition as soon as we left the parking garage. It looked interesting. I also was planning to get tickets for the ‘Legends in Concert‘, at Foxwoods, for New Year’s Eve while we were there. So we proceeded to the ‘Theater District’. There was no problem getting the tickets. And they had a combo deal that included the Beatles exhibition for something like $10/ticket extra. So that was a no brainer.

We went to the exhibition as soon as we got the tickets. It wasn’t crowded.

Very well done. Some amazing exhibits. Well presented. Very slick.

Though I am a great (lifelong) fan, I, alas, am not an expert on the Beatles. I was in Ceylon during their meteoric early days, e.g., 1964. Ceylon did not get TV till 1985 so I never got to see the beatles on TV during the 60s. So, there was a lot I did not know. Like the market for the hotel bedsheets, carpets and ashtrays when the Beatles visited the U.S.

The grey album cover, autographed, on John kissing Yoko was fascinating. It was the actual album that John had autographed for David Chapman — his assassin! They had found it at the murder site and had served as police evidence. You can see the police markings on it.

I could have spent much more time there. But, the kids wanted to check out the shops.

I was very impressed. Highly recommended. If you get a chance to see this exhibit, do NOT hesitate. It will be well worth paying $25 or $30. Very good.
