October 30 & 31, 2009
Two Fabulous Shows
Chinook Winds Casino, Oregon
Oh What A Show!!!
In 1978 and throughout the 80's Eddie Money was all the rage on the radio. As you watch him perform 31 years later you come to realize there's no such thing as aging rockers. At least not Eddie. He had the crowd on their feet from the opening number..."Two Tickets to Paradise". "Come on" he shouts to the crowd.."Who wants to go to Mexico with the money man"? In that one moment Eddie Money had set the scene for the rest of the night and our journey began.
Both shows were all thrills and no fills. Fans (some wearing Halloween costumes) filled the venue to party with the money man. They were dancing in the aisles as they sang along to timeless hits like "Shakin", "Two Tickets to Paradise","I Wanna Go Back" and together with the help of his beautiful, talented daughter Jesse, they performed an awesome rendition of "Take Me Home Tonight" It only took one look around the venue to realize the bands likeability.
Saturday nights show was just as incredible with the same boundless energy. Eddie gives credit to his bandmates of 23 years for much of their success. Together they are tight and right on. Together they have a routine that is prime road trip material and together they deliver one "Oh What a Show" performance!
