Reggae Sunday

I am horribly behind in my blogging. I can't believe I'm a week behind! I've been busy, but the good kind of busy. I've had some time to complete design projects AND socialize with friends. I will try to recap in chronological order.

Sunday, August 3rd - Reggae Night at the Hollywood Bowl
This is one of our favorite shows of the Hollywood Bowl Season. Rob and I have seen this show every year we've been together...except for last year. (The show was the weekend before our wedding.) The line-up for this year's show was a bit odd. The openers were Beres Hammond and Barrington Levy, two reggae greats. The weird part is they opened for UB40?!! I consider UB40 to be Reggae Light. Nonetheless, we coerced some people into going. This year's group was rather large. We had 18 people join us this year.

The show was a lot of fun. Every member of our group was up and dancing at one point or another. Some [cough, Rob, cough] were up dancing the whole time. Overall the performances were excellent. Although, I have to say UB40 mellowed and thinned out the crowd. The upside to their performance is that many people were singing along to their hits. Here's a video tidbit.

And here are some photos.

Almost forgot to have a photo taken of ourselves!

As you'll see,this a huge contrast to what Kevin and I dragged to the last show.

Here's an overview of our spread. All the snacks temporarily occupied 3 seats!
