Flo Rida

Last night Everett and I went to York College for the Flo Rida concert.  the show opened with DJ Prostyle and then a couple songs by Oya Baby which are Flo Rida's back up singer and DJ as soon as she finished they went right into Right Round.  Wasn't a big fan but I was surprised how many songs I know the show was a good time party environment 3 different songs he brought students up on stage, went into the crowd and sang for parts of 2 other songs, gave his watch to someone and also autographed his sneakers and gave those away to 3 other fans then after the concert he hung out and went along the barrier and took selfies which is where I got him to sign an 8x10.  I was also able to get the set-list (not listed on set-list he did Good Feeling after My House) after he was done DJ Prostyle was walking on stage and I asked him for it he hand to security then to me so was a good time. Below see some pictures and links to 3 videos on you tube from last nights show (Low, My House & Good Feeling).

The Robert Cray Band

Yesterday a friend Jim contacted me that he had a ticket to last night's Robert Cray show at the Whitaker Center in Harrisburg PA.  So we went was a great show it was just Robert and band with no opening act they went on at 7:30 and played an hour and forty minutes.  We saw the bus at the side of the building and hung out a bit note we were the only ones from the almost sold out show.  We meet and got autographs from all 4 members within a half hour so was pretty nice as it was cold out. Robert wore a mask and didn't want to really do the picture but got a quick bas selfie also got a picture with long time bassist Richard Cousins.
