Hey I saw Cheap Trick last week and they're one of my favorite bands, it was amazing. Just wondering if anyone will be seeing Lynyrd Skynrd?

Hey Jason, i'll most likely be going to skynrd. Just waiting til i'm 100% sure til I rsvp as well as I have a couple friends who are thinking about it. How long did cheap trick play? I saw pics and it looked like there were about 100 people there total due to the weather. Wish I went but I saw them a few times already so I decided to stay home and work on my music. peace

Hey Mike, im also thinking about Lynyrd Skynrd. I haven't met anyone from Meetup.com before, so it would be nice to. Cheap Trick played 20 songs, they were amazing, im a big fan. More people came by later on, sitting in that soaking rain wasn't easy, but worth it. What instrument do you play? I love to play guitar.
Hey Jason, Cool. I'm pretty sure i'll be going. They're one of the few bands i've never seen them. Cheap trick I had seen a few times so I was ok with missing them. I play Bass..mostly alot of funk/groove stuff but really everything. How bout you?
I never saw Lynyrd Skynrd either. I only know two of their hits, so im debating on whether I want to make the trip in the heat, perhaps I should just go for it. That's cool that you play Bass, I've been wanting to learn it. I play guitar, mostly rock, classic rock stuff.
You should def. Go man. Its gonna be alot cooler down there by the water. Plus I guarantee you know alot of their tunes. They had so many great hits its crazy. You'll def. See some wailing gtr. that night for sure. How long a trip do you have? I play a little gtr. Too but bass has been my main instrument for years. It'll be a smokin southern rock night in coney island thurs. I plan on gettin the 5 buck seats. It'll probably be pretty crowded so that should make it kinda exciting and just really cool having them down there.

Yeah I love it there, im actually close by, guess I was just thinking of how tired I was after being soaked for two hours for Cheap Trick. Love the wailing gtr. The 5 buck seats are well worth it. Is there a way to know if people from here will be meeting? Im sort of new to this.
Its nice that its right off the boardwalk. Used to be in a park nearby though that was much better. Long story why that got all screwed up. I just rsvp'd on the skynrd meetup. I posted a comment asking the 2 other people if they wanna figure out a spot to meet at. So go over and rsvp so we can all make plans. Russell the organizer cant make it but we could all just figure out a place to meet nearby. I can give out my # so we can contact each other. I think its gonna be a rockin show. I'm 15-20 mins. Away by train so its easy for me.

Ps..i'm sure he must have but did Rick Nielsen bust out the 5 neck gtr.?
Yeah he took out the 5 neck guitar, and some others. Im also about 15mins away by train. On the Avenue U stop. I have a bass I've been cleaning up, I want to try beginner lessons.
Nice. Yeah he always has a load of gtrs. With him. Oh ok..ur closer than me. I'm by cortelyou road. I can give you beginner lessons if ya want. I'd charge less than other teachers if you wanna really wanna do it. :-D There's 2 other people going to skynrd. We're exchanging messages now. We're gonna meet either 6:30 or 7. Just waiting to hear back from them. If your gonna come rsvp so you can get in on the comments. Take my #[masked] we'll prob. be meeting right next to the box office outside the baseball stadium over there.
Ps..if ya wanna hear some of my playing, my old bands' page is still up on myspace. The recordings are from a few years ago but those are better than anything else I have right now. Its at www.myspace.com/djiboutiband its pretty much funk/jazz, some bluesy, some afrobeat etc.
Hey, by the way..dont feel weird if you dont wanna take lessons with me. I just figured i'd offer them since you mentioned it. I'm fine if not interested. Peace

Beginner lessons would be cool. First I have to clean up the bass, get new strings, maybe set it up, etc. Thanks a bunch for the link, great work. Im still thinking about Lynyrd Skynrd, but will rsvp if I go :)
1 · July 17, 2013
Cool. I hear ya. Might need a setup on one of my basses too. Thanks..glad you liked the tunes. Ok maybe i'll see ya thurs. than. Have a good day.
8/1 show sounds good - is 8/21 the last show of the season? Is it better to get reserved seats? I sat on the boardwalk once for Hall & Oates - the sound was great but you couldn't see anything.

reserved seats are better--you can bring your own chairs too.
0 · June 27, 2013
Yeah the seats are far better, unless you don't mind not viewing the band. The sound there is really great
Note I posted all shows individually--please re-RSVP if you haven't already done so.

Sorry Russell, i'm gonna bail on tonight and work on some of my songs. An old classmate just called me from the concert and said she's going home cause its so gross out there. I'll be at Skynrd next week for sure.
0 · July 12, 2013
I hate to bail last min.... But, I don't want to stand in the rain. However, if it lets up I'm all in.
I agree. I don't want to stand out in the rain also.
My friend just cancelled. Damn..theyre sayin rain but i'm gonna check updates from CI to see what they say on facebook
I should be there by 7:30, maybe a bit earlier. cell[masked]-4159. texting sometimes works better.
How do we find out if the concert will go on or not due to the weather?
The concert is rain or shine. I saw Earth wind and fire in the rain down there and still had a great time.
I'll be attending Lynyrd Skynyrd, GoGo's, & Chicago...
I'll be there with some friends around 7. Also gonna pay for the 5 dollar seats. What time are other people getting there?
8/21 Chicago is a plan is for me!!
FYI I will be adding each remaining show as a separate meetup--this one was just to get the schedule out.

I hope to get there in time for reserved seats. My cell is[masked] if anyone else is looking to do the same.
They announced the show on the 18th..skynrd

I'll likely be dropping out of Cheap Trick to go see WAR do a free show in Crotona Park in the Bronx (as I live in the Bx and have never seen WAR, but have seen Cheap Trick twice already). When the MeetUp comes for Chicago on 8/21, where/when will we meet?
0 · July 1, 2013
Jon, I gotta tell ya..War..isnt really War. Its only the keys player..lonnie jordan..he basically somehow stole the name from the rest of the band and now tours around as War. It sucks..he doesnt even have a bass player. Uses 2 keys players instead and how can War not use a Bass player? The real War..who I saw back when they were still together was forced to use the name.. The lowrider band. I'll never go see War again cause its just not the real band in any way, shape or form. None of the main cats are in the band.
In case anyone is interested..there's also free movies every monday night at west 10th and the boardwalk. Shown on a giant inflatable screen right on the beach.

Smokey Robinson is great!! Seen him twice. Enjoy!!
Nice. I'm psyched to see him. He's one of the few people i've never seen. Its gonna be packed for him i'll bet!!
I'll go to Cheap Trick & Chicago (Can U believe that I've NEVER seen Chicago?)
Reserved seats are the way to go in the lot where the shows are. Well worth the 5 bucks!! I'll be going to all of them except Huey Lewis...unless some better shows pop up on the nights of a couple of the other bands since i've seen all of them except Smokey. Wish Tom Tom club was headlining over the go go's!. They're gonna blow them off the stage.
As of now, I may attend all of them. Huey lewis is iffy since I will be coming back from SF the day before.

This a group for all women and men, who really love live music and want to go to concerts but can't always find someone to go with.
Not everyone in the group will like the same music and/or bands, but that's cool.
So if a show is coming up that you want to go to but have no friend to join you, post it and I am sure people will join! Be proactive when you post ideas!
It's about enjoying the show together and having fun with like minded people, and discover some new bands and music along the way!
