Too bad everybody could not have been present last Friday when the Fraternal Order of Alaska State Troopers did another great job of providing premier entertainment in the persons of Paul Revere and the Raiders and Michael Johnson at the Kenai Central Auditorium. A packed crowd of rock and roll groupies were inspired again by the awesome music presented by 67-year-old Paul Revere. Lyrics and rhythm such as "Hungry" and "Indian Reservation" will always be relevant. Joining the Raiders was the 40-year-old son of a member of the Righteous Brothers, who Paul dubbed "Righteous Baby." Listening to him sing "Soul and Inspiration" was deja vu.
What a blast listening to supurb music and wonderful showmanship. Michael Johnson's "Bluer than Blue" was again a hit.
What a treat to hear praise given on a rock concert stage to members of the Alaska State Troopers and all American veterans. Proceeds from the sale of CDs for the Raiders goes to Alaskan veterans during the tour. In addition to playing in Kenai, the concert also played in Fairbanks and Anchorage, with Juneau to follow. Good music, good community and a good time was had by all.
