Hall & Oates in Orlando!

Hall & Oates in Orlando

Last night Ellen and I joined friends at the Dr. Phillips center for the performing arts to watch the concert put on by a duo from our past, Hall and Oates.

hall and oaes concert orlando

First off, if you have not seen a show at the performing arts center, you really should make plans to do so.  The center offers a nearly flawless venue to enjoy your favorite group or show.  I say nearly only because parking is a little difficult and/or pricy.  We ended up using valet.  $35.00.  Ouch!

The Hall & Oates show exceeded our expectations.  It is really nice to go to a show and hear music that you know and can sing along.  “I can’t go for that”, “You make my dreams” and “You’ve lost that lovin’ feeling” were crowd pleasers!  The entire band was energetic and you could tell they were enjoying putting on the show as much as the audience was enjoying it.

Great concerts like this one is another reason we think living near Orlando is awesome!
