Friday night Boz Scaggs came to the Midstate Fair in Paso Robles for Jazz Night. I was fortunate enough to be offered 2 tickets from a friend who happened to have a table. This is the first time I have had the opportunity to sit so close to the stage, so of course we decided to go. Add to that how much I enjoy Boz Scaggs and his band, and you know I was a happy camper.
The first time my husband and I saw Boz was 32 years ago on New Year's Eve at the art decoParamount Theatre Downtown Oakland, Ca. Construction on the Paramount began in late 1930. The Paramount Theatre was one of only three theatres built by the Publix chain on the West Coast. It was not only the last Publix house but was also the last very largemoving picture theatre built on the West Coast and is now the largest of the type still existing there. Financial pressure of the times forced Publix to sell the theatre prior to its completion, and although it opened as the Oakland Paramount on December 16, 1931, it was one of the Fox West Coast theatres.
Since it was New Year's Eve, everyone was dressed to the 9's, and many arrived in limos. We were about 6 months into a whirlwind romance, madly in love, and so Boz Scaggs, along with his great dance music, always brings back wonderful memories.
The first half of the concert at the Paramount, Boz came out in what looked like black silk slacks and a white silk shirt. I thought the music was great, and the Paramount Theatre was a beauty in itself. Formerly, it had been a very large movie theatre but then had been converted into a venue for live performances. After a brief intermission, Boz came back on stage in a full tuxedo, and shortly into the next song, the stage curtain behind him opened to the accompaniment of a full orchestra behind him. We were awed and in heaven... I will forever remember that night...
The concert on Friday came at an appropriate time. This Thursday, August 7th, we are celebrating our 30th anniversary. The concert wasn't at a fancy theatre, it wasn't New Year's Eve and there was no orchestra, but it was still Boz Scaggs and his band at their best. Boz was perfect, as usual, and his 2 backup singers are fabulous; particularly Monet.
My favorite duet with Boz and Monet is Miss Sun. They play well off of each other, and Monet's voice is incredible. That woman has one healthy set of lungs. She also took the stage for one song by herself while Boz took a short break. I'm surprised she doesn't headline concerts on her own, but I'm happy she's still with Boz. Monet is a wonderful surprise for folks who haven't seen Boz before in concert.
Anyway, the event was as fabulous and fun as I expected it to be. We all brought food, there were bottles of wine for sale, lots of the tables and concert attendees were decorated and costumed for the event, and I know everyone had a great time. The crowd was up singing and dancing about 15 minutes into the concert, and toward the end, I don't think anyone was seated. The only disappointment was that the concert didn't last longer (always the complaint of a paying customer - we want more!). Boz did come back for an encore of 2 songs, ending with Loan me a Dime. It was a great outdoor summer evening!
