But that’s only because I’ve trained you well.
One of the best things about going to a live taping of The Nite Show is getting to listen to all the amazing music.
The TV audience sees one performance by the night’s musical guest, and they hear The Jump City Jazz Band play the show in and out of commercial breaks.
If you’re lucky enough to be in the audience at The Gracie Theatre, however, you get to enjoy so much more.
And due to the occasional technical difficulty, they will sometimes have to play The Nite Show theme more than once, or just improvise a performance for the crowd until the crew can get things running smoothly again.
They are a great group of guys, even though some of them still call me Timbo…
Currently, “Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash” is being performed at the Bangor Opera House. This week’s musical guest is Jeremy Sevelovitz, who headlines the show as Johnny Cash.
Now I can tell people I saw him perform live!
That’s Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul, and Mary! If you look closely, you can see his guitar tucked away behind him. He serenaded us from that seat…
This is the kind of fun, entertaining stuff that the folks at home never get to see, and why you want to be at The Nite Show when it’s rocking!
These are three of the guys from Mes Amis. I introduced myself and asked if I could take a photo for my blog. They were more than happy to comply, and we ended up talking for a few minutes. They were a lot of fun, and I was excited to see them perform.
Later, Mes Amis closed out the taping with a rousing performance. If you want to find out more about them, check out their Facebook page or visit their site: Mes Amis link
Mes Amis then gave the studio audience a treat by performing two additional songs. Mini concerts like this are the norm at a taping of The Nite Show, and just one more reason to show up to see the show live.
Of course, you really want to be at The Gracie Theatre so you can see Danny dancing to the music. That alone is well worth the price of admission (which is free!)…
And that, Modern Philosophers, is why you should run into The Gracie Theatre whenever you hear The Nite Show rocking. Trust me, you are missing out on a great time.
The Season Premiere of The Nite Show airs tonight in Maine. If you can’t catch it, but want more information about the show, visit its Facebook page, check out its YouTube channel, or follow it on Twitter @TheNiteShowME.
Rock on, Modern Philosophers!
