RetroRoadhusband, the dear, just surprised me with a fabulous Valentines gift – 2 tickets for us to go see Herb Alpert (of The Tijuana Brass) and Lani Hall (his wife and ex-lead singer of Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66.) These are two of my fave easy listening / jazz 1960’s music groups and I can’t wait to see the show at the historic Keswick Theatre in Glenside PA next Friday!
I used to listen to Whipped Cream and Other Delights while dancing around the basement when I was growing up, and I’ve continued to be a fan of Alpert’s interpretations of standards and his originals. Sergio Mendes and Brazil 66’s album Look Around is one I picked up while thrifting when we were engaged to be married and it always brings good memories!
We’ll start off the evening with a few cocktails at our fave vintage inspired bar / lounge / restaurant The Blue Comet just down the road from the theatre. We love the vibe and food there, and are so glad this rockabilly haven has reopened.
Now I just have to figure out what to WEAR! 🙂
