Yacht Rock? Great Music I Think: Michael McDonald/Boz Scaggs Concert Review

I had another fun night at a concert.
I saw Boz Scaggs and Michael McDonald, two amazing singer/songwriter/musicians, in Cincinnati.
This was the second time I saw Boz and the first time seeing Michael.
Both are just exceptional talents and seem to be cool, professional people.
And they both have great bands backing them.
And of course, both have great songs.
Boz played many of his solo songs, where Michael played Doobie Brothers songs he originally sang, wrote, and played on, solo hits, and some cool covers.
Both were great, but Boz just takes the cake for me.
Oh my gosh he is so amazing.
His voice and songs are just magical to me.
If anyone out there are not familiar with either one of these gentlemen, do yourself a favor and look up their songs.
Well, my next concert is Tuesday, in which I’ll be seeing an Eagle, Mr. Don Henley, for the first time.
My concert tour continues on, with no end in sight.
Love and Peace everyone.
