Too hard for me to get around that venue with my walker.
Last performance i saw was Harry Connick Jr, not that he is a fave.
Am a fan of Diannah Krall, and Steve Tyrell.
Years ago when the Marriott Hotel on Wolf Rd had a pool club i met Smokey Robinson. I was leaving the restaurant at lunch time, and had taken a cold med. Smokey opened the door for me, and i almost fainted! I think he thought it was because of him? Probably my light headed feeling was from the cold med.
