The band might be up there in age, but they're still rocking. No, really. LET'S give a hand to the Moody Blues -- the Brit Invasion band's days of future have passed, but that doesn't stop them from delivering great rock shows. At Radio City Music Hall for a one-night stand Thursday, the rockers played a set that reminded the sold-out Music Hall why they're one of the most important rock acts to ever come out of the UK. The scope of the band's songs in this performance showcased their musicality (they've still got it), and that there's more to the Moody Blues than the movie soundtrack staple "Nights in White Satin," most recently borrowed by Rob Zombie for his horror flick "Halloween 2." The obvious fan favorites, most of which are still played daily on classic rock radio -- such as "Question," "Tuesday Afternoon" and "Your Wildest Dreams" -- peppered this concert, keeping the show's momentum going despite a few slow clunkers like "Are You Sitting Comfortably?" that weighed down the middle of the set.

Please pause playlist at bottom of page to hear the video.
Just a preview of the concert. I hope to have more songs soon.
This is one of my favorite Moody Blues songs, The Story in Your Eyes.

RECIPE FOR A MIRACLE
- 1 cup of Tension
- 2 cups of Stress
- 1 teaspoon of Guilt
- 2 heaping cups of Limited Time
- 3/4 tablespoons of Urgency
- A dash of "No Other Choice"
- 3 heaping cups of Faith
Fold in ingredients gently into a bowl. Mix vigorously and add a few tears. You'll sweat a little as you knead the dough.
Pack it firmly between your hopes and dreams and form into a perfect little ball.
Sprinkle it with a little faith, rolling the ball in the flour until fully covered.
Place it under a veil of belief and allow it to rise.
Put it in an oven that has been pre-set at the perfect temperature for the heat of trials and tribulations.
Allow it to brown under the warmth of God's love. Remove after due season and allow to cool in the confidence of His promise.
Garnish with your praises. Arrange neatly on a platter of thankfulness and serve to friends, families, and oh yes, strangers...invite them too!
Pass on the recipe to all who request it and let them know that with this recipe, they have the makings of a miracle!

Artist David Ilan Needs 250,000 Votes to Start a Portrait of Michael Jackson. Please vote on the supportjacksonportrait link below if interested.
If 250,000 fans vote in support of the Michael Jackson Portrait project here, the drawing will begin. A dedicated website will be created so people can sign up for their free dot. People will be able to attach a message to their dot if they choose. Every time someone signs up, a dot will be hand drawn in the work of art in their name. People will be able to go online to see the portrait as it evolves toward completion and read some of the messages. At least one million fans will be needed to complete the drawing, so it’s important to spread the word!

This time there will be no orchestra. Rather, visuals of covers of their albums or holograms of images behind them. They're called the working man's band since they tour from coast to coast in the United States every year.
Tomorrow night THE MOODY BLUES will be at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan. I can't wait to see them perform Your Wildest Dreams, Are You Sitting Comfortably, December, and so much more.
You see, they're my favorite band. And in the future, wouldn't it be nice to see them perform in England, their home country?
In the meantime, The Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan will do just fine!
