Reminiscing about Gary Puckett at Mohegan Sun Wolf Den

It’s difficult to believe that here it is almost Labor Day 2011 and we have already attended 24 live concerts this year! I was reflecting today on the Gary Puckett concert we attended at the Mohegan Sun Wolf Den on August 11, 2011. It prompted me to put together this post.

We had a magical evening. Gary Puckett and his band played well for us. Gary struggled with a cold but made it through the evening. He showed himself as a real trooper and that the show must go on 😉 He sang all his hits for us.

The concert took on a special meaning as the first date I ever had with my wife Rosemary was a Gary Puckett and the Union Gap concert, 42 years ago. I was hoping to get to speak with Gary Puckett about this after the show. My hopes became answered as he conducted a meet and greet with fans after the show, signing CDs, photographs and even the set list we had snagged 😉

He was really nice to talk to. I mentioned to him that his concert was our first date and that Johnny Maestro & the Brooklyn Bridge were the opening act. This was more meaningful in that Gary Puckett had just sung a tribute song in Johnny Maestro’s memory a cappella with his band members.

He signed his greatest hits CD cover  for us with the words “Hi Ed & Rosemary, “42 Years”, Gary Puckett”.

Here is some other memorabilia from that evening 🙂 Thanks Gary Puckett we so enjoyed listening to you sing and to get to meet you afterwards.
