                  Oh yeah I saw BlackHawk a couple years ago in a small little bar -- they were without their drummer who I think had cancer at the time and it was all acoustic. I think they are the best country band of all time. Amazing harmony.

                  I was in second row for Chicago one time...they are really good, but it's not the same without Peter Cetera -- he is the best.

                            LOL... music is my hobby, i used to write on-line reviews but it got to be too much...

                            I go to a winter Feastival and a summer Feztival every year, and each of those has around 5 bands, so that's how i see some of them.

                            and two guys i work with like to go... we try to go every other month, at least. we also try to go to the smaller venues in Philly...that's the best.
