Something tells me I'm into something good...

Spur of the moment, The Reet, G-Man and Johnnyk headed southeast Saturday night to Mohegan Sun to feed Reet's craving for some (gambling) action. I quickly checked the Wolf Den schedule to have an alternative to throwing my money away and came up with Herman's Hermits starring Peter Noone (the original lead singer!). Granted, the Hermits were not the Beatles, but they had a string of catchy pop hits during the British Invasion and I'm not so much the music snob that I didn't listen to them.

The Reet listened at her nearby video poker post, while G-Man and I stand at the bar (Sam Summer for Dad, LI Ice Tea for G) for the 8pm show. Not a bad show. Peter Noone's voice is amazingly intact and he easily hits all the notes. Quite the showman. Highlights are Because, a tribute to the Dave Clark Five, and the almost-whispered Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter. A nod to the threesome seated at the bar, who tastfully filled in the backing vocals during the song.
