Westchester Concert 8-23-2012

The Featured Performers

The Featured Performers

This blog is about car shows and there were a few cars but I went with my camera and and wasn’t returning without ‘a few photos’ (say, 721 images). The music was definitely in the spirit of Cruise Nights and nostalgia.

Paul Gattuso  really out did himself bringing all together Joe ‘Elvis’ Tirrito, Steve ‘Neil Diamond’ Richards and Nick ‘Tom Jones’ Miller nm for a summertime concert at Westbrook Commons shopping center. It was an amazing show with each performer singing many of their counterpart’s familiar tunes. There were too many songs to show here so I chose my favorites. And I must report that as Joe ‘Elvis’ Tirrito was singing the Tina Turner song Proud Mary, the power went out so the true showman he is, ‘Elvis’ treated us to almost three full perfomances of it!. Then some fellow in the front row asked for an encore of Proud Mary! Listen to Presley’s version here. I’d hoped to hear Girl Happy, an Elvis tune which Joe’s earlier performance sparked a memory so here’s a link to that from my 6-25-2012 Cruise Night page.

I have an unusual Elvis Army story of my own involving my step-uncle at one of my other blogs.
