Just got back from Cabo, and what an incredible couple shows.. Kari's 50th rivaled my annual birthday bashes! It was an 80’s themed party and guests partying included my brother-in-Santo Adam Levine (sporting a crop-top and fanny-pack, joined by his wife Behati who showed her inner 80’s in her "Jane Fonda Workout" outfit), James Hetfield, Bob Weir, Toby Keith, Emeril Lagasse, Michael Anthony and more. In keeping with the 80’s theme they all packed the dance floor for performances by Loverboy and Eddie Money. The club looked amazing the food was fantastic, the decorations and the music perfect!

Kari had this to share: "Thank you for the greatest birthday of my life I'll never forget it & the most awesome present/party anyone could ask for! Thanks to all our friends and family that made it down here to help celebrate my 50th!"

The next night the party continued with the Redheads in attendance, my sons Andrew and Aaron kicked things off, Bob Weir laid down some acoustic tunes, Eddie Money rocked it and handled emcee duties, Loverboy killed it for 90-minutes, and then Mikey, Vic, me and Kenny Aronoff took the stage for 2 hours and an off-the-cuff setlist. We of course pulled Toby Keith and Eddie Money back up to join us - maybe one of the best nights at Cabo Wabo ever!

Special highlights were Toby knocking it out of the park on "Sweet Home Alabama" and Bob Seger's "Fire Down Below" (his voice was perfect for those songs!) and Bob Weir and the band closing the show in true Dead fashion with a version of Mas Tequila that has never been heard or played before - as Bob put it, "We took a long walk in the woods"!

All I have to say is, Sammy you guys rocked the cantina Friday night. And then when everything was over we stood out by the wall with your buddy Jill Schultz and you signed my wife's 35 year old flyer from Spokane, Wa. from 82. That flyer was her first time seeing you on her 16th birthday. You gave her and I high 5's...You made her day...Thank You Sammy!!!

What a fun night at the 80's party and a great way to start the new year out on the right foot!!!
There were so many awesome surprises in the set list and the performers. Bob Weir was a special surprise opener, Eddie Money was great and Loverboy rocked. Sammy, Vic, Michael Anthony, and Aronoff rocked the casa!!! Toby Keith sounded great too.
Great mix of songs in the sets. I've been going to Cabo with my family since 1991. It is such a special place and I'm happy that Sammy has such a positive influence there!
