After a 5-month hiatus from songwriter nights (for no reason), we went to the Bluebird Cafe for an “in the round” line-up of songwriters that we could not pass up:
This one was extra fun, due to the fact that we were seated in the VERY front row for a change.
Not to mention the fact that we were privileged to be in the same room with these 4 incredible songwriters.
We took over 70 photographs this time!
The only problem was we were seated directly behind Bob DiPiero, and therefore didn’t get any decent shots of him at all. Much like on this night about a year ago at the Bluebird:
Aside from the back of his head, and the occasional right-arm or left-arm clad in a red shirt that you see in everyone else’s photos, you’d hardly know that Bob DiPiero was at this show — according to our photographs. Which is a shame, because he’s a class act. Such a joy to listen to! For a sampling more than 50 songs that Bob DiPiero has written, check this out.
We were, however, privileged to get to see Bart Allmand in the audience. He was co-writer with Bob DiPiero on the song, “You Can’t Take The Honky Tonk Outta The Girl” — the hit made famous by Brooks & Dunn.
Another rising star seated in the front row was Sarah Buxton. Sarah seems to be living her dreams right now. (And she’s in good company with friends like these 4!) She was invited to sing a song of her own on this night at the Bluebird… and this cutie stole the show. Watch for more from Sarah Buxton.
It’s kind of an “inside story”, but we thought it was funny to find her seated in the front row, too (yet receiving NO attention).
Check out the latest antics of these 4 guys (Tony Mullins, Craig Wiseman, Bob DiPiero, and Jeffrey Steele) who have become well-known as The Hitmen of Music Row.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
