TICKETS TORN IN HALF:September 2,1992-RAY CHARLES /BB KING/BLUES FEST@Jones BEACH w/BUDDY GUY,Dr. JOHN, FABULOUS T-BIRDS

There is no way I am going to miss seeing RAY CHARLES heading a bill with BUDDY GUY.This was the only show I desired tickets for in quite some time and good ones I got, great seats up front in the newly re-designed amphitheater known as JONES BEACH. This place has come along way since GUY LOMBARDO used to stage musicals 6 nights a week. More seating and a bit more comfortable but still outside an some of inside is a “no fun zone”.

We arrived late and missed some of the T-Birds who were nearly finished with their set. Seems they went on early. DR. JOHN was wonderful as always. BUDDY GUY on fire followed by BB who was bluesy to say the least and I cried when Ray sang GEORGIA and GOD BLESS AMERICA. “What a night,” as Dr. John would sing.
