Chaplin's - The Music Cafe Round 2

http://chaplinsthemusiccafe.com

Just got back home from Spring City PA and had a wonderful time again!

I saw my love and heartthrob from high school (other than John Vanbiesbrouck and Duran Duran LOL) Eric Bazilian! He was playing a fabulous accoustic show in this WONDERFUL little cafe studio - if you can, you MUST go there to experience the atmosphere and the culture of talented people and the fans who love it. Totally worth the drive and the food.

Rewind back to Sept. 25th, 1987 - I was on MTV's "Music Passport - the New York Edition" with the Hooters when they played at the Ritz during their 'One Way Home' tour.

Here's the proof:

LOL! How 80's was that outfit? That hair? I was ... 16 back then. We did the opening chords for "And We Danced" for the line waiting outside for the concert.... best day of my life.



And fast forward to Oct. 13th, 2006:

After the show tonight, Eric did a little meet & greet with fans (the cafe holds about 80 people plus staff) .... and he walked up to me and said "I remember you"!

I almost fainted. Talk about coincidences - when I showed him the copy of the NYC piccie he said "You'll never believe this but I found the master tapes from than show last week. And now you're here."

He is so gracious and kind, and I felt like I was 16 again. OMG I was blushing and all giddy - I hope to hell I didn't act like a complete idiot dork. But Eric is SO handsome, so gorgeous, so hot... *chuckles*

He has a beautiful wife and children, all whom were there as well and it made me smile to see just how much he loves his family. His show was amazing and he had John Lilley, also from the Hooters, join him onstage for many songs and jokes. I didn't want the night to end.

It is called a melodica aka a "hooter" (hence the band name!)... a combination of a harmonica with piano keys and you play it by blowing through it. In this partcular photo we are playing the intro to "And We Danced" which got edited into the live version of the performance they played that night onstage.

Hee!

Holy mackerels, you have the best, most truly happy smile I've ever seen! I'm trying to remember the words to that song now, And we danced! Like the waves on the ocean something-anced....
