How's this for a conundrum: You need to put together the song order for a big concert of 1970s music in which a cool rock band performs with a cool wind symphony. The options are not endless, but they are plentiful:
* You could start with a real tune that kicks human buttocks, like Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" (http://youtu.be/KnhqK93XoJ0).
* You could start with something mellow and sweet to kind of ease the audience into the whole shebang, like with Bette Midler's "The Rose" (http://youtu.be/LV5QLW6XyiE)
* Oh, you could be a little crazy and start with a song sponsored by a sponsor (duh), like ELO's "Mr. Blue Sky" (http://youtu.be/c6BLw8eIhT4)
* There's always the logical idea, but not "The Logical Song," that also matches up well with you gut, such as Chicago's "Beginnings," which integrates parts of both rock band and wind symphony.
So what do you do?
In this case, it's a no-brainer: go with mind & gut and show the capacity crowd what you got. You begin with "Beginnings."
Thus, Rock 'N' Winds '70s Night began in a logical and full-bellied way on June 16, 2012. Your YouChoose Band (http://myyouchoose.com/) teamed up with the Hanover Horns, a portion of the amazing horn section that is part of the Hanover Wind Symphony (http://hanoverwinds.org/).
Now, a very good looking and smart professional like yourself if probably thinking, 'What was Rock 'N' Winds '70s Night?'
If you, by chance, missed Rock 'N' Winds '70s Night, you missed a great combination of '70s music (made up of your requests, which you paid for, and which gave you the option of singing/playing along with the combined group), community wind symphony adult band, a need to raise funds for the non-profit Hanover Wind Symphony & Special Olympics New Jersey, and the best in rock 'n' roll. Now, put those three elements together into one big venue, shake really hard, and guess what you get?
Rock 'N' Winds '70s Night!
