The non-profit that I work for put on it's annual fundraiser concert last night and we were able to book CSN for the event... beyond cool. Although as an employee I could have gotten in to general admission for free, I bought two tickets in the reserved section, second row - center stage just behind the sponsorship tables... but at the last minute someone wanted to buy my seats so my employer gave me an upgrade to the VIP tables... third row from the stage! What a total blessing, I have never had seats this good. Thank you, I'll work for free for the rest of the year, just kidding.
What can be said about Crosby, Stills & Nash?
I am a big David Crosby fan and he really came through last night. David and Graham Nash carried the show for most of the night. David and Graham controlled the stage with their vocals while Stephen Stills completely sat out many of the songs, but Stills guitar work is second to none and last night he was a force to be reckoned with.
I was trying to think of one song that summed up the CSN concert last night, too many to choose from. They closed with one of my favorites "Teach Your Children" (we all noticed the absence of Suite Judy Blue Eyes) but there was the new Graham Nash song "In Your Name" that was hauntingly beautiful and at the same time such a powerful and timely song. Graham's new song is actually a prayer for peace and it nearly brought me to tears.
Peace, Love, and Light through Jesus the Christ!
