Edwin McCain Gives a Concert at Yokosuka

And we got a free concert thanks to MWR (Morale, Welfare & Recreation) here at CFAY (Commander Fleet Activities Yokosuka). "I'll Be" was our wedding song, and to hear it live, standing a few feet from Edwin McCain was incredible! I didn't record that song because I wanted to enjoy it and kind of take it all in, you know?! I was resting my elbows on the stage right in front of guitarist Larry Chaney. I would guess a crowd of about 150 was there, and most of the conversation I could hear was from tweens and teens asking who this guy is! I've been a huge fan since my freshman year of college (1997-1998) and felt like a groupie standing right up at the stage!

I was kicking myself for only bringing my smaller camera with video. Don't get me wrong, I was thrilled to be able to take video, but my other camera takes much better photos, but since it's an SLR, no video. I'll add a few of the better pictures here and will also include a video of him singing "I Could Not Ask for More." I've got a few more videos, but they're too long/too large of a file size to post. So if you subscribe to my blog via email you'll need to click here to view it.

Mr. McCain and his band gave us a great show, and is very supportive of the military. This was the first time I've ever been to a concert like this - a USO or MWR sponsored event. It does wonders for morale of the active duty members and for families too!

You mean the one that's blurry?

You were dancing too fast. How is anyone supposed to photograph someone slam dancing to Edwin McCain in low light?

awww...I remember "I'll be" as the song playing on Dawsons creek when Joey and Dawson had their first kiss at the end of the first season!....*sighs* I am so old. 31 is no fun...
