As you may or may not know, the education program I go to is centred around music. That means I have a lot of cool teachers who do a lot of cool stuff, one of them being one of my teachers in music theory who plays the saxophone. (Man in the white t-shirt in the videos, also the one who took this picture). He told us he is playing with an American vocalist this weekend, and that if we came we’d get cheaper tickets. So, I usually don’t go out much, but he showed us a little clip of them practicing for the concert and Celine (@sunfloraison) and I decided to go because from that clip alone the vocalist sounded SO good.
We showed up yesterday and found some of our fellow classmates and flocked together in a corner by the front of the room. And oh my lord, did we have a good time.
In the first clip my teacher is saying, after presenting the instrumentalists in the band “and we have someone else who’s coming on stage, who we have been looking forward to having so much and we hope you have too, give a warm welcome to - the best vocalist EVER, in my opinion, in Tower of Power through 13 years - Mr. Larry Braggs!”
(The last clip is my personal favourite song that they played).
After the concert, we all ran over to find our teacher and asked if we could please meet the vocalist. He said he’d go ask him, and lo and behold, he walked out and talked to us! We also got a picture with him.😁 I felt kinda special because after he had to go, we turned around and walked through a little crowd of other people who wanted to meet him. That’s one of the perks of having teachers that play in a band😜
I just wanted to share that because I had such a great time, and this is the single best vocalist I’ve heard live through my, admittedly, not very long life of 17 years. But still - after the concert my classmates and I talked about how this has probably completely ruined future concert experiences for us 😆
Anyway, please go check out @larry.braggs - he had a way of bringing together the people in the room (everyone from drunk 60- year olds to a group of school students, which can’t be easy), and gave us all a great time. Thanks, Larry!😁
Here’s one of our member’s cars. Dodge Demon. One of the best set of taillights around. Viper blue with a set of racing stripes sets this bad girl off! Nice color choice. Staying original to dodge. With color choices from dodge, how could you not. Because Mopar! #inlandempire#mopar#dodge#dodgedemon#towerofpower#inlandmopars

Week 6 status report: HALF WAY 😎😎 I am starting to see RESULTS which is satisfying after weeks of hard work. I am loving how my arms are turning out. My butt is still a bit small but I have a love/hate relationship with leg work I.e I can lift much heavier than I do. I don’t find the grind as gratifying as upper body work. When I’m satisfied with the progress up top, I’ll flip my focus and start building a booty 🍑
