Kari's 50th B-Day '80s-Themed Cabo Bash!
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"!
