    I met Pierre Robert last night

    Winterfest concert was last night and Pierre Robert, from WMMR was the Master of Ceremonies. The show kicked off with The Quiet Men, a local New Hope Irish type folk band who did takes on Tom Petty's Breakdown and Blind Faith's Can't Find My Way Home as well as originals and traditional folk tunes.

    The headliners were In The Pocket which was

    David Uosikkinen from the Hooters with special guests...

    Richard Bush - The A's / The Peace Creeps
    Tommy Conwell - Tommy Conwell & The Young Rumblers
    Jay Davidson - Steve Winwood / Funk Brothers
    Rob Hyman - The Hooters
    Charlie & Richie Ingui - Soul Survivors
    Cliff Hillis - IKE
    John Lilley - The Hooters
    TJ Tindall - Legendary Gamble & Huff guitarist/ Bonnie Raitt / Robert Palmer / Four Tops
    William Wittman - Cyndy Lauper / Too Much Joy

    What a great show in a small acoustically correct High School Auditorium. From the site:
    From the band that brought international attention to the Philadelphia music scene, The Hooters' David Uosikkinen and his band, IN THE POCKET will rock the 2012 Winter Festival concert.

    IN THE POCKET: THE ESSENTIAL SONGS OF PHILADELPHIA is the brainchild of The Hooters' David Uosikkinen. With his revolving band of celebrated Philadelphia musicians, Uosikkinen pays homage to his essential songs of Philadelphia by rerecording songs that were recorded, written or performed by Philadelphians, and were inspirational to him growing up in and around the city. The songs are released online only at, where a video documentary of each song can also be viewed. IN THE POCKET has recorded five songs to date: Joey Wilson's All My Mondays, Todd Rundgren's Open My Eyes, The Dovell's You Can't Sit Down, The Hooters cover Soon You'll Be Gone and Robert Hazard's Change Reaction. These essential songs feature the band, In The Pocket, an all-star rotating lineup of Philly’s most respected musicians.

    So anyway, on the way out, we were first out the doors, and standing there was Pierre. We walked over and he asked us our names and proceeded to have a nice conversation about his 30 some odd years in Philly on WMMR. We parted as the crowd came out but he was a super nice guy who loves what he does and his fans.

    Oh yeah, one of the encores was Eddie Van Hamster, which Pierre wrote.

    Tommy Conwells set was rockin and he is still an entertaining player.
