Bridge School Benefit Concert

The lineup this year:

Gavin Rossdale of Bush
Wolfmother from Australia
Monsters of Folk with M. Ward
Fleet Foxes
Sheryl Crow
Adam Sandler
Chris Martin of Coldplay
No Doubt
Neil Young

I enjoyed Gavin Rossdale, No Doubt and Sheryl Crow. But Adam Sandler rocked! He sang songs about a seven foot tall man, grandma, girlfriends, and lunch lady land. He ended by singing a duet with Neil Young. He pulled out the old Chaunnakah song! And he covered a couple songs including one by Led Zepplin. Sandler’s act wasn’t as polished, and he kept laughing at himself, but that is what makes him so loveable!

Chris Martin was absolutely brilliant! He embodied everything I believe this concert is about. It was just him and a piano accompanied by an Italian violinist. Raw music and raw talent. The man is amazing. I was captivated! His piano work was incredible. He knows how to interact with the crowd. And he can certainly sing. He ended with a beautiful version of Earth Angel.

Adam Sandler and Chris Martin will be the reason I’ll buy the recording of this night when it hits the iTunes store.
