5 on Friday - Set 127

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

As the kick-off to our 20th anniversary celebration, my husband and I enjoyed a stellar night out on Tuesday at the Schooner Room to see John Pizzarelli, headlining the jazz festival here in Halifax.

It was an awesome evening.

Joining us for such a superb performance were my Aunt Noel and Uncle Charlie, who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary out at the lake where my sister and Newt were married. I'm sure Auntie and Uncle thought John Pizzarelli was singing every love song for them, because Brad and I sure thought he was singing them for us.

Here's a shot of my aunt and uncle saluting one another at their 50th.

At the end of the show, where my family had their own table up front (Mom, Aunt Noel and Uncle Charlie, my Uncle Warren visiting from Michigan, my cousin Julianne MacLean, my sister Michelle and her husband Newt, plus Brad and me) we bought copies of his new CD which he autographed. Then we got our picture taken together--great job, Brad!

Happy 20th Anniversary to you and what a great way to celebrate!

John Pizzarelli was just at the Rockport Music Festival in Massachusetts on July 8th and from what I understand he did a great show; I'm also pretty sure it was sold out! A couple of my friends had wanted to go but found out about it too late. The only thing I've ever heard him do - before today - was the song for Foxwoods Resort Casino. So nice to hear he's so much better than just that!

Those were mostly smooth jazz, which I really like because my ear can follow it.

Congratulations on your anniversary!
