The World Peace Prayer Ceremony is a global celebration of the oneness of life and the human family. With united hearts and minds, participants of the Ceremony are invited to invoke prayers for peace to prevail in the countries and regions of the world. It is a moving ceremonial ritual rising above national boundaries, religion and ideologies giving expression to the universal wish for peace and harmony which lies at the core of every human heart.
Next month in Bridgeport, Ct. The Gathering of the Vibes will take place. This will be the 19th year for GOTV. I have attended three times thus far, 2007, 2009 and 2010. The festival is 20 minutes from the house. We love The Vibes!
I am planning to attend again in 2014. In reviewing the schedule for 2014 my present thinking is to attend Saturday August 2 and Sunday August 3. I do hope I follow through on that commitment 😉
It was an exciting evening seeing Elton John and his wonderful band live in concert last night at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Ct. I just got done reading the Rolling Stone Magazine article by James Sullivan “Elton John Hits the Road With the Hits”. He captures the essence of the concert with great panache.
It was reassuring as a longtime Rolling Stone Magazine subscriber to see an article published about a concert we witnessed live the day before!
My favorite song of the night was “I’m Still Standing“, Rosemary loved hearing “Your Song” 🙂
I love discovering unique entertainment venues right in my backyard. A couple of months back I stumbled on the Bijou Theatre in downtown Bridgeport.The city of Bridgeport, Ct always creates a warm, eclectic feel when it comes to the arts for us. We have been steady patrons of the Downtown Cabaret Theatre as well as The Klein in Bridgeport. We’re very excited to see Elton John on November 8th in Bridgeport at The Webster Bank Arena in Harbor Yard.
The Bijou is the one of the oldest buildings used as a movie house in the country. The Bijou Theatre is a multi–functional venue with integrity and an open minded philosophy. A symposium for film, theatre, art, comedy and music.
The Bijou will be hosting its first independent film festival, The Bijou Theatre Film Festival 2013. this week October 3-6 in conjunction with Oktoberfest. The festival film that has my interest is Muscle Shoals which I blogged about a few months back (june 10, 2013). It will be screening on Saturday October 5th at 4 p.m. I can’t wait to see this film.
I’m considering taking the local Metro North train to this event which negates the hassle of driving and parking. I can just hop the train and be at the stadium in 16 minutes. It will only cost $5 round trip and some foot power 😉

Did you ever have one of those days that was as much a contact high as it was richly fulfilling. May 22, 2012 has been that day for music appreciation.
The day started on a high note and has been playing strong ever since. I was waiting for the morning coffee to kick in as The Howard Stern Show began its Rock Day over the Sirius/XM wireless radio. I quickly learned that Slash was coming into the studio to talk to Howard Stern to promote his new CD, Apocalyptic Love (5/22). His interview was as compelling as it was intimate. I’m listening to the replay of the interview as I write this post. Amazing musical career. I especially like his vocalist Myles Kennedy, their juxtaposition is striking
Slash’s interview was followed by Gregg Allman‘s in-studio appearance and interview in support of his new autobiography, My Cross to Bear.
Today was also the release date of the Tedeschi Trucks Band Live double CD, Everybody’s Talkin. I have my copy in my hot little hands and I can’t wait to start listening to it on the Bose Sound System after the Gregg Allman interview.
I am eager to relive some of the live tracks that were recorded at the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s concert we attended last year on October 29th in Bridgeport, CT along with all the other tracks. I have also downloaded the extra track, “Simple Song / Take You Higher”.
Here is the video of Everybody’s Talkin filmed at The Klein in Bridgeport, Ct.
I’m underwhelmed by the GOTV artist lineup compared to recent years to be very honest. I’m hoping the schedule is not complete as Sunday July 22nd is very weak without a major artist anchoring that day. The Gathering of the Vibes has been known to add more major acts as the festival gets closer so I am hoping Ken Hays has some aces up his sleeve for Vibes 2012.
