Grace Potter and the Nocturnals rocked the house at the Ridgefield Playhouse, Ridgefield CT Sunday night September 12, 2010.
The Nocturnals took the stage at 8:15 and got the crowd clapping. Catherine Popper, on bass, looked like an Egyptian Princess! The guys were in their usual suits but Scott Tournet was sporting a new haircut/style.
Grace Potter walk on stage in leopard print wedge heels looking like a Greek Goddess; much to the delight of the fans in the Playhouse.
They broke into "That Phone" and rocked 45 minutes ending the first set with "Tiny Light".

Lyle Lovett and His Large Band

Image
Lyle Lovett and His Large Band opened the 2010 Champlain Valley Expo last night, August 28.

The "very" large band performed for close to two hours to a fairly good sized crowd. Ticket sales had been slow but by show time a crowd of couple thousand was in attendance. Lovett played a few from his new CD "Natural Forces" and also many old favorites including:
"I Will Rise Up"
"Up in Indiana"
"My Baby Don't Tolerate"
and my personal favorite "If I Had A Boat."

Nice way to start off the fair!

SOX WIN IN THE RAIN!!!


The Boston Red Sox played game three of a three game series Sunday August 22 against the Toronto Blues Jays. The game was delayed about two (2) hours because of rain then the umps. stopped the game in the third inning due to rain. This delay lasted about one hour.















Starting pitcher Clay Buchholz was masterful, hit pitched 6 innings, giving up only 5 hits, no runs, with 7 strike-outs and only 3 walks.

Buchholz had help  from Daniel Bard and Felix Doubront and run support from Bill Hall, Adrian Beltre, Big Papi, Marco Scutaro and Ryan Kalish.

Photos from the game are posted on my web page: http://www.photosbynanci.com/redsox08222010.html

July was one HOT month for concerts for Photos By Nanci. We rocked into the July 4th weekend seeing Meat Loaf at the Meadowbrook US Cellular Pavilion in Gilford, NH. This is a great venue to see shows at easy in, easy parking, easy out and some pretty great acts get booked there every year!

Meat Loaf opened his Hang Cool Teddy Bear Tour in NH and for a "sexty" something rocker he still has it. Lisa Bouchelle opened and it was quite a HOT SUMMER night for music at Meadowbrook!

Armadillos Acoustic Sunday's-Good Keene Music

Acoustic Sunday’s at Armadillo’s Burritos
Keene NH
July 11, 2010
Mike and Ruthy
Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hammer

When I heard that Anais Mitchell was playing in Keene NH I knew I had to make the hour drive down there. When I heard that the venue was a burrito joint, well let’s just say I was a little hesitant. But I made the call to Orange Earth Productions and reserved our seats.

Armadillo’s Burritos is a funky burrito place on Main Street in Keene NH. They are closed/slow on Sunday’s so it’s a perfect time/place to host acoustic music and that’s what Orange Earth Productions and Armadillo’s has done. Doors open at 5 pm and they serve good, inexpensive, well made food (HUGE burritos, nachos, chili, chips salsa guac) until 5:45 pm. Performances start at 6 pm. They have a nice selection of beer and wine which they serve until closing (a pitcher of Newcastle draft was $8!!!)

The show Sunday July 11, 2010 was a co-headliner of Mike and Ruthy and Anais Mitchell. Mitchell was accompani…
