Last night we had a chance to see Pittsburgh's Johnny Angel (sans Halos) perform with the Joe Lagnase Swingtet 8 at a fundraiser for our local library, a cause dear to my heart. I have to confess that I am a closet Big Band fan and was amazed at how many of the songs I could sing along to: Save the Last Dance for Me, L.O.V.E., The Way You Look Tonight, Days of Wine and Roses and O' Danny Boy.
Sitting together in a big room in our community center, we had a good time saying hello to the few people I knew in the crowd and meeting others. My friend's high school-aged son happened to be passing by the door when he said to his mother, "There are a bunch of old people here for something."
Yeah, so what's your point?
