Foreigner & Styx rocked Musikfest

Two classic rock bands took to the Sands Steel Stage at PNC Plaza last night at Musikfest; Foreigner and Styx. Both bands rocked the outdoor venue to a sold-out crowd. For older rock bands, they sounded great and put on a fantastic show. Check out some pictures below.

If you’ve never ‘fested, you don’t know what you are missing! For the first time ever, I had tickets for the  MINI of Allentown Steel Terrace which is a tented venue with tables and chairs. My tickets also included a hot food buffet including dessert, all of my drinks (and yes, that means alcohol), and the best perk of all … VIP bathrooms! These tickets were worth their weight in gold and well worth the price.

Last Friday I was fortunate enough to be able to spend a little bit of time with my 15-year old niece. Getting time with any teenager is tough in this world of technology! I picked her up at 9 a.m., told her to turn off the phone and we headed to see a play at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival in Lehigh Valley. Each year I try to see at least one adult and one kid’s production. This year it just happened to be Beauty and the Beast. I have never seen the movie, so I knew I was going to be in for a real treat.

With each kid’s show, there is always a twist to the story so that the cast can make it their own. This one started off with storyteller and enchantress, Florabunda and the hysterical Grampaw Gus telling the story of Henry Beaumont and his beautiful daughter Belinda Bell. Here’s the short version …
