My wife and I drove two and a half hours from the wine country
to see Anthony perform at the Turlock Community Theatre in
Turlock, CA. The venue is a converted high school auditorium.
However, the conversion is very nice as it is very comfortable
and has excellent acoustics.
Anthony was in excellent voice and although I did not keep track,
his song set seemed identical to Rancho Santa Fe. This was my
first time seeing Patrick in performance and it was a real treat.
He compliments Anthony perfectly with his witty stories which
become hilarious due to his understated delivery. His story of a
Englishman, Scotsman and Irishman and their travails with
sandwiches had the audience in stitches. Overall, it was a
wonderful performance and seeing Anthony perform on the West
Coast was a big treat...he was superb.
Afterwards, Patrick and Anthony graciously met with the
audience in the lobby where his new CD was being sold.
A great night despite having to sit in front of a guy whose
cellphone went off twice during Anthony's performance.
