Doesn't get better than that.  One of the young engineers at work saw her recently in SoCal and thought she sounded great. Be prepared, apparently she can't take air condition so the whole place was steaming...

Congrats on getting to work with her again. I know you enjoyed the last time, but this series of concerts will be even more memorable since your son will be playing with you as well.  8)

Thanks eardrum, Bart and Frankie!

What a kick in the butt to play the show side-by-side with my son.  It was a wonderful (pre) Father's Day gift. 

And eardrum is right...the show was delayed 30 minutes because the arena was too cold and they had to warm it up before she would go on.
