Horseshoe Casino - Tunica, MS
I have to admit. I didn't know too many Loggins and Messina's tunes beyond "Danny's Song" and "Your Momma Don't Dance." My husband however is a huge fan. So I thought "What the heck," I'd go to the concert with him. A 4 hour drive, spend the night in Tunica, eat a good buffet and hit the slots.
After the first song, I am now a total Loggins and Messina fan. I loved their soul touching music. The heart that they put into every song. The musicianship on the stage was amazing, (especially the alto sax player who seemed to enjoy every moment).
I hope they tour for a while because I would definitely like to go see another show. Plan on listening to a few more albums also. They were awesome! I can't say enough. It was the highlight of the week including the buffet! Great job guys!!! - Mary Kae
Great to see Kenny and Jim back
together and hear all the songs that I loved so much. I caught myself
singing along so many times and was amazed that I knew so many of the
lyrics. The talents of these two and the great band had the people in
the audience spellbound and in awe of
My friend & I made an eight hr drive to see
the Tunica, Ms. show. It was the first time my friend had ever been to
a L&M concert. I, on the other hand, saw them every time they came
to Texas back in the 70's. We thoroughly enjoyed the Tunica show. The
band members were excellent. Kenny & Jimmy were wonderful. Sounded
as good - or if possible - better than they did 30 yrs. ago. Jimmy's guitar
playing is amazing. Kenny's energy level & vocals are great.
As most of you, I was ever so looking forward to this concert. It has been a long 30 years hoping they would get back together. The band sounded great and seemed very tight. I loved all the stage backdrops. It was a mixed crowd with maybe 60% being L&M fans. I am glad I got to see the show as this was the closest they were coming to where I live, but for $75 I feel I was cheated by the casino. I hope there will be a next year. - John
This was our first time at Beau Rivage. Our only disappointment was that the casino seemed to have done a poor job promoting this show. It was sad to see empty seats.
The band was great! I felt like I was in a time warp
hearing the old songs. I'm really glad that they opted to ROCK instead
of playing all of the ballads. PLEASE come back ...
Loggins and Messina were one of my favorite bands in
the mid-70's and I was so disappointed when they broke up. Getting tickets
to this reunion tour was one of the highlights of my summer.
I used to be a sax player with plans. Always wanted to be in a band where some great music was performed, as well as some spotlights on the horn guys. L&M seemed to fit that vision in the '70's and I've been hooked by their sound ever since. Oh sure, I bought the CD's when they were released but, never gave it any thought of L&M reuniting.
Flash to 2005, the tickets were had and I, now in my
late 40's and long had given up on the musical chase, took my wife to
see one of "my bands" with little expectations of a quality
show. Other bands have come through and
Well, some three weeks after the concert, I'm still buzzing. I haven't been to a show with so much quality music being performed in the last 15 years. I've nearly worn out my vinyl recordings of these guys. I know their stuff and can honestly say, they are better today then they were in their heyday. L&M and band is more precise, and yet easy flowing. Jimmy's great vocals are better than ever and Kenny continues to be one of the most distinctive voices around. And of course my heart was touched when Kenny told us that the tour is dedicated to Jon Clarke, one of the original horn players, who passed away in June.
Excitement, maturity, happiness & sadness all in one night. Does it get any better than that...not for me. Thanks for coming through and giving us a piece of something old driven with a newer beat. I hope you're recording some of these live events. It would be a shame to not preserve some of this for the folks who couldn't make it. Sittin' In Again...I'm glad I pulled up a chair!! - Dana Swanson
