I’m a music lover, you should know this already. I mean, hello, what to I do for a living?! Right. So, with that, I tend to get to as many concerts as I can. The latest was for someone I have been wanting to see on his own for a while now. Ya know, get the full show experience instead of the festival type show I had already seen. Who was it? BRUNO MARS.
I took the 3-hour car trip and headed to Mohegan Sun on June 28thfor the Moonshine Jungle 2013 Tour. Bruno is just a different guy. He’s not your typical solo artist of today. He puts on a big show, yes, but it’s not the over produced, dancing, acrobatic type event. It’s like a throwback to the soul days of music. It’s like he got together with “the boys,” and put a doo-wop group together and jumped on the soul train. There’s passion, feeling, movement in every word sung. And man, can that dude sing!
16 songs, including all the hits: “Just the Way You Are,” “Grenade,” “Treasure,” “Locked Out of Heaven” and even “Billionaire” and “Nothing On You” which broke him onto the scene as more than the song writer he had been.
Have the opportunity to see Bruno? Don’t pass it up.
