We are putting Monday 5/11 up on the board on circling it as Date Night. We will be back to Folsom's Harris Center for another shindig.
We are going to see an Elton John Tribute called "Remember when rock was young". My wife has seen Sir Elton several times but as it was older Elton he just can't hit the high notes as well nor go as truly crazy as 70's Elton did. We hope the tribute is manic and can sing way up there. If you can book a seat soon and join us in the spectacle that was Elton before the Sir....
The sun has been out and the temps are moving up so Sunday was a Rose of a time. The birds and the bees were out having a good time and so were we; and it cost nothing!
One of the free things to do around Sac is visit the many parks and see the flora and sometimes fauna. With the warm weather; the thought was are roses blooming? Yes they were.
We went to the Capitol and it's World Peace Rose Garden. Parking can be a bit tough but a Volvo pulled out kitty corner to Cafeteria 15L so we swooped in, parked, and strolled over. Just a quick something to do and a few minutes of sitting on a bench surrounded by roses for two lovebirds. You should try it before it gets blazing hot in June.
See more pictures below.
The garden left us feeling Scentimental
The Million Dollar Quartet at the Harris Center was fantastic as expected. The ending was an epic rip roaring foot stomping good time. The four donned sequined jackets and ripped into a medley of songs. Hello Vegas.
The actors tried to mirror their "originals", some better than others, but they stayed in character and added little nuances throughout the production. This was a show to be seen many nights to catch all the little things. For al intensive purposes the Jerry Lee Lewis actor was The Killer causing grief and running amok being a freak of nature and putting on one hell of a show. This show rocked!
No we didn't win the lottery. At least monetarily...
Sam Philips of Sun Records did though back in the 50's. But the star power of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins broke his financial resources and he had to upsize Elvis to the Major Labels to survive the mounting costs. One day they all were at the studio at one time and laid down some tracks and of course there was a photo shoot. Born was the "Million Dollar Quartet" and tonight is Date Night so we are going to the Harris Center at Folsom Lake College to see the National Touring "Million Dollar Quartet" show hit the stage.
The Harris Center is always top notch and we're looking forward to rockabillying the hours away tonight. In a perfect world we would have also reserved a spot at Land Ocean down the street or headed to Old Town Folsom first but unfortunately I have to work late tonight so pre-show festivities are limited. The show ran Thursday, Tonight, and still has one more show Saturday you may be able to make.
