Watching anyone that is passionate about what they’re doing is both exciting and rewarding.
At the last minute Rachel and I were able to get Tickets to the Ben Folds Show at the Waterstreet Music Hall last week. During the show it became clear that Ben thoroughly enjoys his music and his shows. He played some of the most energetic piano for over 2 hours and when he finally went off stage he shook his hands and you could tell he was exhausted. Even so, as all bands do, he came back for an encore and rocked the house again.
Needless to say the show was incredible. Everything was amazing from the opener, a band I’d not previously heard of called “Jukebox the Ghost“, to “The midnight Ramblers” (an acappella group from The University of Rochester) to Julia Nunes (a famous ukalele YouTuber from Rochester NY). The only music we really knew was the older stuff from Ben Folds Five but it didn’t really matter, The place was alive and it was a blast.
Unfortunately all I had with me was my iPhone camera so It was difficult to capture the moment with any clarity.
I’ll remember the show forever even without the pictures. That’s what Passion does.
