Last night my family, along with longtime family friends Tom & Dianne Knapp, went to Jazz Alley in Seattle to see Legendary singer, songwriter, producer Steve Tyrell. When I first found out about going (or when my parents informed the three of us that WE WERE GOING and if we had plans, we’d better change them asap) I was less than thrilled. I had no idea who the guy was, nor did I want to spend a Saturday night see him in concert.
However, I quickly learned that he is best known for his songs he sung in Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride Part II, that my family LOVES! Probably, our family’s all-time favorite movie. We can just about recite the entire Part II movie (and do quite often!).
What an amazing performance, he sang some of our favorites from the Father of the Bride films including On the Sunnyside of the Street and The Simple Life. He also sung I Say A Little Prayer for You and I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself from another family favorite movie, My Best Friend’s Wedding! And yes, we even did the “lobster” hands during I Say A Little Prayer for You! (If you don’t know what I'm talking about, you are totally missing out! But, because I feel you need to see it, I’ve included a YouTube clip of it!
The two photos above were the extent of the good photos we took! We couldn’t have the camera flash on, so all the other photos are bad, and I mean B.A.D! Sorry Dianne, I know I said I’d post the videos, but they really aren’t worth seeing, just ask my family!!! Oh well! We did take a few more photos outside of the theater ….
Before and after the show we were at Tom & Dianne’s home on Queen Anne. They have a BEAUTIFUL view of Seattle, the Space Needle and the waterfront! Stunningly beautiful!
There was also swimming in their pool and holding Tom & Dianne’s daughter Gina’s, little man, Chance! He’s 5-months old and so very cute!!
Needless to say the day turned out pretty darn fun!! I very much enjoyed myself! (Other than the fact I was eaten alive by mosquitoes, but that’s another story!).
Hope everyone had a great weekend!!
