Ottmar Liebert and Luna Negra were in the house. The band was jumping! Michael Chavez-drummer was on fire. What a difference from two weeks ago in Portland. Must be something about a Saturday nite crowd. An electrifying and intoxicating evening indeed.
I went with my friends Kim & Jhon and we were celebrating her 50th birthday. She called this morning to thank me for such a wonderful evening of music and friendship and an even bigger thank you for her surprise gift- CD - Petals on the Path, which Ottmar graciously personalized and autographed. Thank you Ottmar! Kim's husband commented that she's been on cloud 9 since last night, said she's been "Dancing Alone" to the music...even in her sleep! ;-)
We were already making plans for the next time Ottmar comes to town but might prove to be difficult since they might be moving in the fall. Nonetheless, memories from last night will always be there.
