     I just got back from Disney. Roger was magical as he performed on Thu and Fri evening in Disney's Epcot. He sounded better than ever with his voice and guitar, keyboard and piano playing. His voice sounded as strong as I remembered it from the last concert I saw back in Canada in 2006. His Sax player (as well as many other instruments) Aaron McDonald sounded really good as well.



What was really cool about this experience was how Roger's Manager Linda arranged for me and my family to have Roger's VIP section 3rd row center seats as well as backstage meet and greet after the 3rd and last show. (Unfortunately because of the lateness for my young boys, we wouldn't be able to do the meet and greet.) Also, how great she and Shakti were to come out to greet and chat with my family before the first show. It was like seeing old friends again.



After the Fri 5:15 p.m. show, I called Linda up to thank her again for everything she did for me and my family. She responded with how glad she was to hear from me and that Roger wanted to see me. ( She knew it was too hard to wait 2 more shows with small children) I was really excited to hear that. So I went backstage with my wife and 3 year old son. (my other nearly 8 month old son waited with my mother-in-law) It was great to see Roger as he was accompanied by Shakti. We chatted for about 10 minutes, and my wife snapped a picture of Roger and me. We said our goodbyes and this ended what was a great 2 days of concerts (along with the other fun things to do at the park of course.) (-: The following our the set lists and comments for the 2 concerts attended:



Thu 11/4



1. Take the Long Way Home - Roger talked about how he loved Disney and how magical it was.

2. Give a Little Bit - Roger thanked Disney for inviting him and how Diverse it was with all its cultures.

3. Breakfast in America - Roger joked how when he wrote this song in his late teens about dreaming to come to America and seeing the California girls to the dismay of his then girlfriend.

4. Logical Song - Roger talked about as a young child wondering what life was all about inspired him to write this song.

5. Lord is it Mine - Roger said this is probably is favorite song he ever wrote.

6. Dreamer - Roger said there is a dreamer in all of us to pursue.

7. It's Raining Again - Roger joked about watching the clock since he only had 30 minutes to squeeze all his songs in and had to shorten his conversations with the audience.





Fri 11/5



1. Take the Long Way Home - Roger joked about how the wind was possibly going to affect the way they played.

2. Give a Little Bit - Roger joked how the wind was blowing making him eat his hair. He also thanked Disney again and would be glad to perform again there. As well as saying how diverse they were with all the many cultures.

3. Sister Moonshine - This was a pleasant surprise to hear since I was expecting Breakfast in America in this song slot.

4. Breakfast in America - Roger talked about his dream of coming to America to live in California.

5. Logical Song - Roger mentioned about as a toddler wondering about life and God inspired this song.

6. Lord is it Mine - Roger said about how this was one of his favorite songs.

7. Dreamer - Roger talked about this was the dreamer in all of us to pursue what we love.



Overall for both days, I thought Roger's voice and playing was as strong as ever! I also found Roger as usual to be warm and personable with the audience.



Take care.
