Hello, June! We have officially made it to the warmer weather and you know what that means right?!? Festival season is upon us! If you’re a seasoned festival goer you’ve had your fair share of mishaps in forgetting essential items. With Trackside Music Festival just a month away, we wanted to provide you with some solid festival advice because we know you may be a little rusty from hibernating all winter.
When I hear the words Harlem Globetrotters, two things happen:
- I remember my Dad and I laughing our heads off at the Globetrotters' hijinks in the seventies
- I instantly hear Sweet Georgia Brown - the team's catchy theme song
Both of these things put a goofy smile on my face, and so when I learned that I had been selected to be Budweiser Garden's reviewer for the Globetrotters show on April 15th, I was thrilled!
Oh the look of joy and smiling face of a concert goer who lost their phone and we have it for them. Not so much as the grown man with tears streaming down his face as we break the news that no phone was not turned in. Sometimes, things really pile up, especially in the winter months, when we run out of space to store the items. During the winter months at any given time, we have at least 7 Rubbermaid bins full of items that were unclaimed by patrons attending concerts and sporting events that were found here by our ushers and cleaning staff after events.
My daughter Megan (11) and I were given the opportunity to attend the London performance of Annie. This beloved musical happens to be my daughter's favourite film and she was totally surprised when we walked into the theatre and saw the Annie logo on the curtain. She actually started crying because she was so excited to be there. She is a theatre child and loves performing, but had never been to a Broadway performance.
In 2015 Green Day were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. On Sunday night, they showed why.
The band that is largely accredited with creating the late 90’s early 00's punk scene, along with Blink-182, came to Budweiser Gardens and put on a show that was a sight to see. Along with front man Billie Joe Armstrong the crowd sang to the classics like Holiday and Basket Case- to their new stuff off their latest album, Revolution Radio.
