Dr. House Sings the Blues

This past Saturday night, Gary & I did something we've never done before - we went to see a Blues concert.  The cool thing is that it was Hugh Laurie, who plays Gregory House on TV, and his band.

We've been fans of the show "House" for all 8 seasons and were super sad when we found out this would be the last season.  Ironically, the last episode aired just a few days before the concert.  So, even though we lost "House", we gained a chance to see Hugh Laurie in his other element.

I wasn't sure what to expect, since I had never heard Hugh Laurie sing before.  When we found our seats, the people next to us were from Sacramento and extremely friendly.  They are fans of Hugh Laurie's music career and talked to us about it before the show.

Once the concert started, it flew by!  Hugh came out and spoke to the audience a bit about his longtime love of music, and joked about him being an actor, not a musician.  Trust me when I tell you, he IS a musician!!  I was amazed at his talent of playing the piano and the guitar.  His band was just as impressive.  There were times when I could actually feel the music in my soul.

He played for 2 hours straight, and I was still sad when it was time to go home.

If you are interested in his music, here is a link to where you can buy Hugh Laurie's album.
