    I was at Northern Lights for Alex Band, he recently released his solo album on his own label. He did a wonderful job as did the opening act which was actually Jared Funari not Sugar Red Drive. Unfortunately they were both cut short, Jared only got to do 3 songs and I was really hoping Alex would get more time on stage. I was bummed!
    After, my sister spoke with Jared for a bit, was a guinea pig in getting an album signed with a silver pen which smeared the CD, so he got another for her and signed that effectively. She also purchased a unique swirly necklace.
    I spoke with Alex briefly and got my album signed and got a picture with him. ^_^
    Alex did say Ed puts on a good show…

    My companions and I listened to Ed for 3 or 4 songs but just didn’t care for him. It was neat to see the lead singer of Live but I found him boring on stage… and his band was overpowering his vocals anyway. Not sure why he had so many guys with him… seemed overkill. *shrug*

    I wish more people standing so close to the stage would at least move their head to the music. I do NOT understand standing that close and being a statue. O_o I see this alot at concerts, and I have yet to meet someone who can explain why?
