Thanks to Chris Farrow for the set list!
The weather was cool but SAMMY and the WABOÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢S were SMOKIN !
Now for another ON STAGE FUN ADDICT report.
When it comes to giving the fans what they want there in no one on the plant better at it then SAMMY and the WABOÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢S and last night was no exception. SAMMY and the WABOÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢S were so tight last night and the music was so good. One of the best SAMMY shows IÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ve seen. The 10,000 + fans really fired up SAMMY and the WABOÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢S , they were having so much fun it was pure joy to watch and of course participate from the stage. I brought in the banner with a picture of Sammy and the words Hallelujah SAMMY AND THE WABOÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢S ARE KICIN ASS IN NOBLESVILLE INDIANA. When SAMMY signed it backstage he had one request for ME, ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“You are going to throw this on stage tonight, RIGHTÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â! Now how do you refuse the RED ROCKER one simple request when he has granted all of us so many. It was so cool when I handed it to SAMMY and as he stood on top of DavidÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s drum riser and he displayed it to the crowd, who went nuts. Sammy didnÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢t stop there, he took it down on the stage and displayed it again, wore it as a cape and around his waist, what an honor!!!!! To top it off when SAMMY was done and needed to give some others a chance for him to do the same for them, he came back to the ON STAGE FUN ADDICTS and handed it back to me. PRICELESS!!!!!!!. SAMMY also signed my GOT CABO license plate, last time,(Murat Centre), the front plate, this time the rear one.
The ON STAGE FUN ADDICTS were called on a couple of more times during the show. When SAMMY needed a Sharpie to sign some up front fanatics items, and T.O. Terrell Owens of the 49ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ers wasnÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢t in the crowd, who did he look to, the only other group that is guaranteed to be carrying one, the ON STAGE FUN ADDICTS of course, we got it to him before the stage hand could, and SAMMY always made sure we got the Sharpie back. When SAMMY wanted someone to sing DREAMS with, where did he go? Right in the middle of the ON STAGE FUN ADDICTS. Now thatÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s what DREAMS are made of. SAMMY is just a class act. One hell of a show and one night IÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ll never forget.
SAMMY, JESSE, VIC, MONA, DAVID ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œ THANK YOU for another Glorious ROCK & ROLL night!!!!!!! Hope to see you in Cabo.

Thanks again to Sammy and the Wabos. See you in Cabo!!!
This review is going to be a little different. I reviewed the Murat show and if you read it, you know there were two new redheads in the world that night. The three of us went to Indy again Friday. I predicted a totally different experience for them - outside venue, next stop Cabo, Sammy would have fresh pipes, etc. etc. What I didn't take into account was the spiritual quality of the night. We were up close and personal at the Murat, so we did lawn seating Friday. The music was plenty loud enough, sounded terrific, Sammy was having fun - everything you'd expect. The difference was not only the cloudless, starry night, but the magic it held. Sammy is generous with his fans - everyone knows that - but nobody ever thanks him for his deeper kind of love. I am now: Thank you.
From a true Redhead, an inspired young lady who found herself this summer (largely thanks to my constant references to your lyrics and passion), and a blues fan who still likes it RED ...... thanks for doing what you do. It was a moving experience.
