Nothing like some Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes to knock a few years off.  The Gary Douglas Band opened and set the tone for a really good night.

One of the good things about the big concert is meeting up with people who share the same interest and sometimes more.  We met the couple in the seats in front of us,  Fraanck and Gigi from Manchester, who go back with Johnny to The Shaboo, same as my Sister.  So we exchanged photos.

Johnny made the hard work go so easy.  He and the band sent the fun vibrations right into the crowd, which was more than ready.
