Jilda wanted to go to Florence, Alabama tonight to see Christine Ohlman.
She a blues singer who is a regular on Saturday Night Live.
I like the blues, but I wasn't sure I wanted to drive 2 hours to Florence for the show, but I could tell she REALLY wanted to go, so we booked a room at the Mariott and headed out after lunch.
The hotel is located on the bank of the Tennessee river and it's very nice.
The show started early(6pm) and on the stage with Christine was some of the best muscians on the planet.
Kelvin Holley, MC Thurman,and Mike Dylan. They are some of the world famous Muscle Shoals musicians. They played on many of the records you grew up with.
After a few bars, it became apparent that we were sitting in a musical vortex -- witnessing something rare. We had front row seats to a phenominal performance.
I shot pictures and video, but we didn't bring the laptop and I couldn't figure out how to get the photos on the blog from the iPad.
Needless to say I was very happy I didn't wimp out and not come to this show.
It was truly magical.
