Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey 2017 Tickets

When I first heard that Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey would be touring together, I thought to myself, that is the perfect pairing.  Think about it.  It will be a night of hits that span from the 1980's up until present time.  You will hear some of the best slow jams ever written.  You will hear some of those nostalgic 80's grooves.  You will hear some 90's soul with Hip Hop beats.  There are too many hits to name, but let me give you a piece of my set list. Let's break it down: ...

2017 Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival

I have not personally been to Delaware in October, but there's a pretty major jazz festival happening October 12th-15th.  It is called the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival.  They bill themselves as the The Greatest Jazz Festival in the World!   I have no reason to disagree with them, because the lineup is pretty stellar. Even thought this is billed as a festival, these are separate concerts at different venues, so it is not all-inclusive.  You can pick and choose which shows you wan to ...

Diana Ross Summer Tour 2017

Diana Ross was here in Las Vegas earlier this year.  She performed a mini 9-date residency at the Venetian Theatre.  While I personally did not attend, the show reviews were stellar.  I mean, you have to put the word Legendary when you address Ms. Ross, right? We are talking Motown here.  As far as I am concerned, that is the beginning of the Soul music movement.  Diana Ross was an original player in that movement.  You look around today, and there are some Motown artists that are ...
