Luhrs Center on Saturday night to hear the great legend and my personal favorite George Benson. At age 67, he looks the same and believe me his voice is still incredible. I have been a long time admirer of George since the late 70s and early 80s while I was in college...which is where I was first introduced to his music.
As an impressionable young adult at a Southern California dorm; I would play his albums on my roomy's record player over and over and over again. My college sweetheart (now the hubby) thought I was a bit stupid; but hey, he did the same for his rocker groups. After years of following my hubby to all his favorite rocker bands, I jumped at the opportunity to see George in person in Shippensburg PA. A short drive away, in a beautiful performing arts center where every seat is a "good one" - we were serenaded to my favorite oldies and also the new songs. For the first time, the hubby followed me to a concert and he enjoyed George as well. Thank you Luhrs Center for bringing George to the Luhrs...before he starts his UK tour. I am so so happy to be living in Cumberland Valley where great acts are accessible without having to go to the Kennedy Center, which is where George performed two days later!
