Music Mambo

I found this over at The Daily Snooze:

1. Name a musician/band or two connected with your state. They could be from your state, have a member born in your state, played a famous show in your state - you get the idea. If you’re not from the U.S., pick a musician or band from your own country.

All I can think of is Porter Wagoner, the man who gave Dolly Parton her big break.  Although from what I've seen of Dolly, she'd have made it eventually anyhow.

2. What’s your favorite place to see a concert? Is it a small club, a large sports arena, a concert hall, an outdoor amphitheater? Tell us why you like to see music in that place.   

I like a hall that's small enough so that I can actually see the performers' faces.  The Ameristar Casino has a great place to see my favorite singers; it's small enough that there really are no bad seats.  If it weren't for the awful late-June heat in Missouri, I'd love going to Van's Warped tour, too.  They really don't have my favorite singers, but there's lots of action.  It's fun to watch the people.

I'm from Georgia so my two musicians/Bands would have to be:  The Allman Brothers and Ray Charles.

I prefer seeing music in a smaller, more intimate setting.  There is more opportunity to interact with the musicians, you can see and hear the preformance better, and you are usually sitting in seats way more comfortable than auditorium seats.
