Saugus High School Benefit Concert 01/05/20

Uploading my videos to YouTube and will post when I can.

This event was put together to benefit the families of the students affected by the Saugus High School shooting back in November 2019.

I was in the front row in front of Colin Hay on the right hand side, who I thought was stellar! Unfortunately, my angle was looking up at Colin and across the stage to Luke and Jeff Babko, while having a monitor right in my ear, thus, sound quality isn't top notch.

Luke, as always, was Luke. Got to meet him (became a 50yo fan boy on the spot) and get a pic with the band (dubbed the "Saugus Strong All Stars") in the pre-show Meet & Greet, with Luke's hand on my shoulder while standing between he and Warren Ham!

Luke was funny AF ("Come on man; get in here. How you doing?") and I made a comment to him about loving the book, but really enjoying the the Audible version much better, to which he responded "wait for the next one..."

The band was incredible. Luke made a comment before "Rosanna" saying that they were all there "out of love and no rehearsal", but that some of them had played together before.

SET LIST
Who Can It Be Now (Colin vox; ROCKIN VERSION!)
Rosanna (Warren vox)
Pride & Joy (Stevie Ray Vaughan cover; Warren vox)
La Culebra (Cecilia vox; Luke had NEVER played this song before and read a small chart taped to his mic stand for the first verse before slaying the rest of the song. This people, is a fucking musician!)
Down Under (Colin vox)
Freedom (Hendrix cover; Warren vox)
Come Together (Beatles cover in original key; Amy vox)

Acoustic Set
Nathan Hubbard - Saugus High School graduate (didn't get the name of his song)
Endless Summer Nights (Richard Marx vox)
Everything You Want (Matt Scannell vox; Richard marx bg vox)
Don't Mean Nuthin' (Richard Marx vox; Matt Scannell bg vox)
Waiting For My Real Life to Begin (Colin vox)

Chris Trujillo & Greg Bissonette Drum + Percussion Jam
Little Wing (Hendrix cover; Warren vox)
Overkill (Colin vox)

ENCORE (Luke with a hilarious comment about the crowd pretending that the band went off stage to make us cheer, followed up by a more hilarious comment and something about getting everyone home to "play a home game")
