I'm liking the Sezter and the Big Bad. True there's no Goodman, but I'd rather you trade your Martin for Sinatra...or Connick Jr....but I'm liking the Martin too.

Slightly unrelated, but Joan Jett is coming to our area and I'm thinking I need to see her a second time.

OK, let me try this again as a whole comment:

Woohoo, the Jett rules! I saw her in '89 and it was the rowdiest concert crowd I've ever seen. You should go, and then you should report back to all us suckahs who didn't get to go.

I actually was engaged to one of the guitar players in one of the neo-retro bands on your list (name withheld to protect the asshole- why, oh, I don't know)

Live was always better than studio recordings with most of these bands - I used to tag along on tour sometimes (that was back in the day when I was touring in opera) and go to some of the bigger shows that featured 3-4 bands in one night. The amount of energy that poured out from these groups - it was so nice compared to the angry punk scene I grew up with. The neo-retro thing, as short as it was...it was all about having fun!!

Opera gal, I just love this stuff live. I've seen the Setzer orchestra three times, and it's just soooo fun. I am in no way a dancer, though swing dancing looks like a wicked good time, but I do so love the music.

I hope you've learned your lesson about guitar players. They're high-maintenance bitches, all of 'em. Almost as bad as lead singers.
Ahem.

LOL!!!
High maintenance? understatement of a LIFETIME. And this is coming from someone who works in OPERA - the industry that coined the word diva.

I will never, ever date a musician again. I'm with a nice, solid, stable businessman now and hopefully forever.

And I wore out lots of pairs of shoes dancing to that stuff - as long as you have a good lead partner, it makes even my 2 left feet seem like Ginger Rogers' slippers.

The lead singer of the Cherry Poppin' Daddies signs my boob regularly. I love small town bands. *grin*

I love me some Steve Perry (lead singer - NOT Journey)
