Mark Schwind. Grinchmas and Brian Setzer Orchestra Gibson Universal 12/17/2011

Mark Schwind, the Grinch and the Stray Cat Strut- holiday style!

Like last year around Christmas, it was another cool time at CityWalk with the inimitable and irrepressible Mark Schwind.   We enjoyed VIP seating at Karl Strauss, Saddle Ranch, The Tree Lighting Ceremony for Grinchmas at Universal Studios and last, and certainly not least, The Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas Show at the Gibson Amphitheatre, where we enjoyed premium seating in a section reserved just for Mark.  The guitar at the Hard Rock Café is currently a replica of the Eddie Van Halen guitar, so that made my evening right there.      After telling her about what a great time we had, my wife regretted not going to this event with us.   Her loss (and the fact that we had an extra ticket that went unused really made her upset- I had to throw that in for free to lift her holiday spirits).  Now she’s really not happy that she missed out.     Brian and his orchestra were incredible- his guitar playing and singing were perfect.  The Stray Cats songs were great and the holiday tunes were killer.   I’m glad I was finally able to catch this show.      The only thing better would have been if Mark Schwind had jammed with the band!!   HOW DO YOU KNOW MARK SCHWIND???
