Jonny Lang, Akil Thompson and Jason Eskridge!!
« on: July 20, 2009, 07:23:11 am »
Okay, so I went to see Jonny Lang in concert tonight.  Wow!!  It was an amazing concert.  What I didn't realize was that two of Melinda's friends were touring with him.  Remember Akil Thompson who produced MFV?  He was playing guitar with Jonny.  And Jason Eskridge sang BGV and had a fantastic solo on Livin' for the City.  What a concert!!!  It makes me want to go to the Redding, CA one in 2 days.  You can check Jonny's site for his tour schedule: http://jonnylang.com/  Definitely go to a concert if you can.  You won't regret it.

P.S.  This piece of trivia is for Maria.  Jason Eskridge has a Mechanical Engineering degree and once worked for NASA.  How cool is that?

Akil Thompson earns MVP (no singing but ... you need to listen)

Jonny Lang and Jason Eskridge - Livin' for the City (it's Jason's voice you hear when the video stops and the picture montage starts)

Whoa!  Des, you mean I could have a possible musical career?   Rolling On Floor Laughing Rolling On Floor Laughing Rolling On Floor Laughing Rolling On Floor Laughing   NOT!  I'm not surprised though because math and music have many things in common.  In fact I had many classmates who had minors in music.  Thumbs Up

Oh heck no!  I was not implying that.  I just thought it was cool that some people could be good engineers and good singers.  Yes, there is a connection between math and music.  Although it never helped me.  Some of my college professors were surprised that I could be so good at math and so lousy at music.   LOL sign
