My wife and I chose Ball and Chain because there were two presentations that day, Jazz from 6 to 10 p.m. and Latin music from 10 p.m. until after midnight. We wanted to have dinner while listening to some jazz and then have more fun dancing with the Latin presentation. But, things do not always go as planned. My wife and I have two children and we are expecting our third boy. We had to wait until our oldest son felt to sleep, so my mother in law could take care of the youngest.

Some people were having drinks and talking with occasional little dances, while others were paying more attention to the musicians. We only enjoyed the last twenty minutes of Lauren’s presentation, but more than enough to appreciate her dedication and the heterogenous and versatile voice she possesses. The small combo of musicians, with her, were very serious about their performances; nevertheless, you could see they were having a good time. The instruments used were piano, electric guitar, cello, and drum. All the musicians performed a solo at the very end, which I did not appreciate that much. Maybe, because my lack of knowledge or because it was too little, too

Menzel performs a selection of songs from her Broadway career, along with original songs from her various solo albums, and her Pop and Rock covers. The group that performed for Menzel was a local Los Angeles band and they played very well for the choices of songs she sang. The performers that played for Menzel was very impressive and seemed they had no problem playing and following the beat of the singer’s voice. There were times when Menzel would stop singing abruptly and they would stop with her at the same time.…

    While the concert start people were just get into the music and enjoy it. I had fall in love with the jazz music after going to this concert. Although it’s fine to go to a classical music concert by own, but I think it would be better to have someone to go with you. Also two people can share their feeling and we can learn new things from each other. The concert ends at 9:00 P.M; my friend and me went for dinner.…

    That being said, an existing familiarity with and investment in the series feel important as characters regularly reference past events and get little in the matter of a reintroduction. In other words, in order to fully appreciate Dancing All Night, having played and, more importantly, enjoyed Persona 4 seems mandatory. For us fans, Dancing All Night ends up feeling like a reunion with dear friends we haven't seen in a long time. The highlight of the game is, without a shadow of a doubt, the opportunity to spend quality time with Yu, Kanji, Naoto, and the rest of the Investigation Team, and learn how the events of Persona 4 ultimately shaped them. Dancing All Night's story is by no means equal to the spectacular one told in Persona 4.…

    The Pep Rally routine was a mash up of songs from various artists. Song choices ranged from Fight Night by Migos, Mercy by Kanye West, Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran. The music choices were edited well to blend and fit together, though an older age group may not appreciate the electronics of the music as much as a younger crowd does. The first piece of choreography, Goodnight Moon, was a jazz routine and was a conventional piece. It is evident in the performances which dancers have years of dance experience and which do not.…

This realization made me feel unsettled, but I knew I needed to come and seek a glimpse of my promise as a violinist. I went to the rather bare-bone dorm, and met a handful of string musicians similar to me. They were all normal people from around the world, and we all shared a common thing: our love for music.…

He made a few jokes about the show running a little bit late saying that magic was happening in the back.…
