What a great night! Veteran's Park was really hoppin' with steamy summer weather, a great audience and incredible musical acts. The sun kept listeners in the shade for part of the show, but everyone spread out and eventually swarmed the stage after the sun was going down.
Alex Preston was the opener, performing some of his original music and other tunes. He played a touching song for his late grandmother.
Monterosa, with Albie Monterrosa of deSol, wowed the crowd with their Latino rock show!
The entertainers have to deal with the strong sun beating down on them, but there was no effect to be noticed in the terrific performances.
I was lucky to have another young model, Lexi, help me with a few photos wearing one of my bags, which turned into one of her bags thanks to her grandmother (and thanks to her grandparents for allowing her to model for me).
Lexi received a free heart for helping me out and, after I gave her a long leather string, she chose to make it into a necklace....it looks great!
She spent a little time with me and I will get to see her again at the August 20th show!
Then to top off an already special night........my daughter Alyssia stopped by with Tommy on bikes to bring me a delicious gyro (heeeero), give me a bathroom break and model some bags for me (which I have been hoping to do), and what a great job she did for me also!
Boy, this youthful, beautiful woman really makes my bags look good!
I love the sun peaking over the top of my canopy.
I have one more show to do for Intown Manchester on Saturday, August 20th. I am so appreciative to them for having me. It has been such a great experience. Looking forward to the last show!
