He Never Disappoints
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  Bill and I saw Billy Joel perform – again – at Madison Square Garden.     It is one of only a few concerts I can think of where you enter the venue singing, sing the whole time and leave thinking about the few songs you didn’t hear. His repertoire is so vast that he could fill many concerns and never repeat a song.     And, Billy Joel is so

The Gift of Song

  This is a proud mama blog.     By Sunday night, I was pleasantly exhausted. This weekend was the Syosset High School musical. For four straight nights, we sat in the auditorium each night inching our way closer to the stage, watching an amazingly talented and cohesive group of students in their happy spots – including my son.     The producti

  We are all creatures of habit. I am about to divulge a fact about myself that few people know. When I am alone in the car I sing – loudly. And, I am partial to one particular song – Born in the USA. To be honest, I’m not sure why this song calls me when I am driving.

  This is not an original blog idea, with credit going to my law partner, Jane Jacobs. But, it got me thinking – well, really singing. Jane was in the process recently of creating a dance playlist and asked for recommendations from her friends.   Let’s help Jane fill out that playlist.  I’ll start.   The first three that came to my mind: 1.

I recently discovered Spotify and Pandora. I may be late to the game, but until now I was devoted to my itunes playlists. That said, I am enjoying the immediacy of being able to listen to new music or really any kind of music whenever the moment moves me. I have to say, my gym workouts have been more intense with this new discovery. What is you

I'm Still Singing

I discovered music in high school. It started with Barry Manilow (yes, I did just admit that) and Bill Joel, but soon Bruce Springsteen took center stage. I have vivid memories of long summer nights with friends hanging out outside of our houses and singing Bruce’s latest hits at the top of our lungs. Not sure the neighbors loved our performances
