Blankets and Lullabands and Lovely Food

Always great to meet a talented artist
who is also very nice.
John Allred,
 a well-known cover artist
with a large fan base
opened our Rooftop Concert on Friday.

Looks like Coryn and John planned their matching outfits.
After meeting him
and hearing him sing live,
I am now a bigger fan than I was before.
What a terrific voice!

Up and coming 
Book on Tapeworm
were next in the line-up. 
LOVE this band
fronted by Scott Shepard.
If I had been on one of the blankets
spread throughout the audience
I could have very well fallen
into a peaceful slumber.
Beautiful voices, harmonies
and songs by this "lullaband."

The original band included
the talented singer-songwriter Emily Brown
who left two weeks ago
to begin serving as an
LDS missionary in
She handpicked her replacement.

The evening ended with headliner
Isaac Russell
who is a signed artist with
Columbia Records.
He has quite a fan base around the country.
An excellent singer-songwriter,
he told me his second CD with
Columbia comes out in a few months. 

The crowd obviously loved him
because before he came on stage
everyone stood up and crowded forward.

Our wonderfully supportive 
Mayor Curtis
has attended almost every concert since
the beginning of the series.
I have enjoyed my conversations with him. 

Can't leave without telling you about
the beautiful food in the Greenroom.
My job is made much easier because of the
sponsorship and preparations of
The Heirloom Group
who have been providing our meals
for the artists and their guests.

Mike Harris, the head chef
for the company
was awesome to work with.
They use fresh, locally grown
produce and meats.
Not only is their food delicious,
but it is a work of art.

The Heirloom Group
is the owner of
Pizzaria 712
Mountain West Burrito
who assisted with the arrangements.

One of my jobs is to make sure the tables look pretty
and that the food is ready to serve
right after the bands do sound check.

All went well
and it was another night to remember.
