Colin Hay at Universal Preservation Hall

Don and I treated ourselves to a live concert tonight at the Universal Preservation Hall in Saratoga and it was great. Colin Hay performed a selection of old and new songs accompanied only by one of his four guitars. He's a very entertaining story teller with a bit of a warped sense of humor, and has some very funny stories to tell. His powerful voice and great vocal range coupled with a very pleasant evening breeze that found it's way through the open side windows of the hall made it a wonderful evening.

 I love the painted performance area of the old church.

            He opened with  "Land Down Under".

He told some stories about playing with Ringo Starr's band and wondered what would happen if Jesus was in your band and was a bad drummer...what would you say to him if he screwed up......"Hey Jesus...that was terrible, can you try that again?"

The stage with his 4 guitars.

Take a listen to "Waiting for my real life to begin"
