I did something yesterday that ended up being one of my best days since this whole quarantine, social distancing thing started! There is a concert hall in Derry, New Hampshire that I had been to a number of times before and my son, I recently found out, had recorded one of the programs he had been involved with here. But with things being the way they are, this spot had been closed for some time.
Some genius involved with the Tupelo Music Hall came up with the idea of outdoor concerts in the parking lot with alternating parking spots and each ticket is for a carload and comes with two spots! Social distancing while enjoying a great show! GENIUS! The shows are called Tupelo Music Hall – Drive-in Experience!
My brother had purchased the ticket for himself and his girlfriend but something came up and she needed to go home to Alabama for a few days to attend an important family event. He called and asked if I would be interested in going and though I don’t like crowds and have avoided concerts for awhile I felt from the way this was described that it might be right up my alley….and he suggested our sister-in-law come along…and she decided to bring her roommate! Party of four having fun at a concert on the 4th of July…oh yeah! The beauty of heading out this year…no traffic…never have I ever driven on the 4th of July without sitting in traffic forever which is why I have avoided going out this holiday weekend for at least the past 10 years…this year, piece of cake! The entertainer this concert…the Adam Ezra Band! Great concert, he is an amazing entertainer and his band is super! Seems each person in the band plays multiple instruments and all do it well.
We meet up at my brother’s house and drive over to Derry…show at 1:00 (he had 3 shows that day) and we were in line a little before noon. We drive in and they hand us a menu and rules to follow there…to keep everyone safe and healthy. Hungry? Want a beverage (all non-alcohol)? Go on the address they give you, order what you want, input your space number, pay online and they deliver everything to you in a golf cart…awesome! Food expensive but very tasty and quite a few options.
And the show begins…I only have a few pictures and one video to share. Several of the pictures I took were of my brother and without his permission, I will not share those. I hope you enjoy the video.
Well, something went wrong and my video keeps disappearing! But…I think you will enjoy this. I hope I am not creating a problem by posting this from YouTube.
Noticing now that this video, though it hasn’t disappeared, may not work either…hope it does! Not my day for videos!
From the statistics I get from WordPress, most of the people who follow me are from other countries but if someone is reading this and considering a visit to New Hampshire I am going to post this link to the Tupelo Music Hall…if you love music, concerts, being outdoors to enjoy a show…you should plan a visit here!
