    Default POCO

    I am so excited. I've just found out that POCO are coming to play at a theater in my hometown AND Richie Furay is their 'special guest'. They are coming November 30 so I don't have long to wait. My local hardware store is sponsoring the concert. I told them they can count me as a regular customer now - ha! I also asked if they could sponsor The Eagles next time They weren't so sure about that one but I'm working on them.

    Okay, so last night was the POCO/Richie Furay concert. It was great and I am now a huge fan of Richie Furay LOL.

    Richie was the opening act. He was super friendly, chatty and funny. He sang a lot of the oldies and a few new ones. He was joined by his daughter Jessie and a guy named Scott Sellen (not quite sure of last name). He has a new CD out 'The Heartbeat of Love' (which I highly recommend) and talked about Timothy helping him out on this (he is on the second song 'My Heart's Cryin' Tonight'). You'll be happy to hear everyone cheered when Timothy's name was mentioned.

    Then there was a break and POCO came on. They also did a lot of oldies 'Rose of Cimmaron', for example. Mixed in with some newer stuff. Rusty and Paul took turns singing lead. Then Rusty started talking about Timothy and how he was in POCO and said '...and this is one of my favorite Timothy songs' (another cheer went up) and they sang 'Keep on Trying'.

    Finally, Ritchie and his daughter and Scott, joined POCO for a few songs. The concert lasted about two and a half hours. Overall it was great. I would highly recommend seeing POCO or Ritchie Furay on his own, if they come to a town near you.

    I'm sorry I cannot list all the songs - I am hopeless at remembering titles. I was amazed at how many people cheered whenever Timothy's name was mentioned and how many times his name was mentioned. He's obviously fondly thought of by everyone in the band (despite his break from them).

    You can hear snippets of Richie Furay's new CD on iTunes.

    Thanks for the review. Sounds like a great show! And I think it's great that there's not acrimony between the members of Poco and Tim. Very mature!
