Shaboo Inn Reunion 2016

A_DSC8462

Shaboo Inn Reunion was powerful, entertaining, and full of memories.  The night had enough talent to fill a festival.  This Blog is a little different from past, as I will do less writing and let you see the evening.  Time allowing I will post more.  I did not catch all the names but did get photos.

Jack played the whole evening and still had the energy for a closing solo.  As well as time to laugh.

Why are these women smiling?  It is because they both received contributions for the centers they run that work on women’s health issues.

Foster continues to work to help his community.  Stay tuned for his next big concerts to provide Willimantic students scholarships to ECSU.

A great evening of music but even more is the rekindling of a spirit, a vibe if you will.

    The Shaboo era is certainly legendary in CT, Whenever David Foster puts together a reunion, you are sure to see some great talent and a gala show. Nice pics, Dom.

  2. Jody Walsh

    Perfect evening! People, Musicians, Sound, everything!

  3. Dave Mitchell

    It really was a perfect evening, except for the lines for the 7 porta-potties, (too much beer).
    Thanks for the pics Dom, I especially like the one as you left, yes—– we worshipped at the altar of blues and rock n’ roll .
