Santa Barbara Bowl - CA
OUTSTANDING!!! I saw the show in Santa Barbara on July 9th and I really
enjoyed it! Even my guests who never heard of Loggins and Messina relayed
satisfaction and enjoyment with the concert. In fact, everyone in the
seemed to have a great time! After the mid-point of the concert, I don't
think there was any person who wasn't tapping their feet or clapping their
hands to the rhythm or beat of the music anyway.
After being a long time Kenny Loggins fan, I was interested
to see "Loggins & Messina" live. I wanted to see them live
because their lyics were always meaningful and the musicians were always
great! And I was really impressed with the musicians in this show including,
Jimmy Messina. Jimmy's work with the mandolin was really special. Although
Kenny was relatively low-key during the show... he
couldn't contain his showmanship or vocals when he sang the song "Peace
Mind". WOW! And I forgot to mention Kenny's great harmonica work!!!
WOW! That was just awesome. Maybe he'll incorporate some harmonica play
in his next solo concert.
It is so difficult to believe that he is in his 50's because his voice
just keeps getting better and better. And that's fortunate for so many
people because we will still be able to hear him sing more great tunes
in the future.
Thank you very much for a wonderful evening!!! - Joseph
Everyone is right!!
There was a something swirling in the air on July the 9th at the SB Bowl!
I had never seen Loggins and Messina play together.
There was such a feeling of respect and admiration for each other between
them- it was palpable. "Keep Me in Mind" was just beautiful.
I went to hear that song alone! They did not disappoint me. I looked around
at one point and thought to myself that it was one huge party. Everyone
was in love with them. One of the best concerts I have ever been to. I
want to see them again... Raquel
Santa Barbara Bowl
Unbelieveable! I have never felt such Magic!! I saw Kenny and Jimmy this
week-end at the Santa Barbar Bowl this week-end, and had the experience
of a lifetime! I first saw L&M at the Universal Amphitheatre when
the theatre was "open air", and many,many times to follow.
But, being a part of their reunion, is just beyond words! The chemistry
and the magic L&M have between them is truly electrifying! Each song
played truly touched my heart and soul! I do have to say when "Be
Free" was performed that brought me to another level!
Unbeleiveable!! .... from acoustics to lyrics ... the entire stage and
each member on it shared such power to the audience!!! I'm sure we all
hope this reunion lasts for another 30 years!!! I can't even imagine what
Kenny and Jimmy could have in store for us!! THANK YOU BOTH FOR SUCH A
BEAUTIFUL SUMMER EVENING!!!! :) - Sheri Goldin
Although a good thirty years clouds my recollection of
seeing L & M at the SB Bowl (at least twice) in the 70's, Saturday
night's concert not only lived up to those fond memories, it BLEW them
out of the water! Now I'm trying to figure out how I can see the show
again - it was that good. If the success of this tour doesn't send these
guys back to the studio for more collaboration, I don't know what will.
Santa Barbara thanks L & M for gracing the us with their presence.
Now they need to hurry and get this tour over so they can get back to
the studio and get to work. - BC
P.S. It was great seeing John Mooy (guitar tech)
on stage. We used to spend the night in line for tickets to see L &
M at the SB Bowl. Time flies . . .
July 9 was a happy day in my life as I was able to see
one of my favorite duos perform in person. Let me tell you they sounded
as good as the first time I saw them in 1972. The band was so tight that
there were times I thought I was listening to a CD. It was so awesome
when Jim Messina sang
the old Buffalo Springfield hit Kind Woman. Richie Furary would have been
proud. I sang, clapped, and danced along to every song with a huge smile
on my face. Hearing Same Old Wine, Be Free, Danny's Song, House at Pooh
brought back so many happy memories. Thank you guys for a wonderful concert!
You should have reunited years ago. I can't wait to see you again. - Jannette
