I had an amazing time at Willie Nelson’s Outlaw Music Festival in Philadelphia. On Saturday, August 5, the festival came to TD Pavilion at The Mann.
The show was really amazing, but a huge highlight for me was seeing Mickey Raphael. Of course, I took Brittany and the Duke himself, Pierre Robert, to the show with me. I wore my “Mickey Raphael #1 Harmonica Player” shirt, and Mickey loved it!
When the band saw the shirt, they nearly stopped the song. It was a riot! Pierre and I had an amazing time talking with Mickey.
I also saw some BamBam fans at the show and got pictures. You guys are really awesome. I love talking to you all.
The show itself was stellar. Seeing a 90-year-old up on stage was truly inspiring. There’s nothing like watching a legend doing their thing up on stage. Some of the best musicians out there supported Willie Nelson as his band. It was a larger crew, but boy, did they sound good!
The whole night was one to remember. Touring over the age of 80 is a feat. And to sound that good is nearly criminal! Thanks for a great night Mickey, Willie, and everyone else.
