Lone Bellow Concert

12 May

Me with Kaylene, Kent, and The Lone Bellow at Mohegan Sun

On April 28, I went to see The Lone Bellow at Mohegan Sun with my cousin Kaylene and her fiance Kent.  I have been a fan of the music of The Lone Bellow for at least a year. When I found out that they were coming to Mohegan Sun, I was quite ecstatic that I was going to witness them in concert. A warm and sunny Friday night in late April I felt was a perfect day to go to Mohegan Sun to see a favorite band of mine perform.

Kaylene and I arrived at Kent’s apartment in Middleboro in the later afternoon on Friday.  It is always great to see Kaylene and Kent, as they both share my interest in going to concerts.  On the way down to Mohegan Sun, we listened to songs by Bruce Hornsby and REM to get in the exciting feeling of going to the concert and witness the scenery of small New England towns. We arrived at the venue a little bit after 8 PM.

Kaylene, Kent, and I entered Mohegan Sun’s Wolf Den, where The Lone Bellow played. The Lone Bellow are an alternative county and folk band based in Brooklyn. During the night, The Lone Bellow played many of their signature songs, including “Teach Me to Know” and “You Never Need Nobody.” They even incorporated a cover of Loverboy’s “Working for the Weekend” into their repertoire for the evening. I had wanted to see this band for a while, so it was great to finally see them on stage.  Best of all, the show was free, as are all concerts in the Wolf Den section of Mohegan Sun.

After the show concluded, Kaylene, Kent, and I even got to meet the band members.  They were so nice and friendly to us and were happy to know that we are fans of their music.  It was great to meet an emerging band in the music world.  The Lone Bellow has a new album coming out this fall sometime, so I very much look forward to hearing their next album.

    This sounds a wonderful evening, Scott! I’ll have to keep my eyes open for the Lone Bellow group in case they come to someplace near me in Wisconsinnthis summer. Thanks for telling me about them. How is your poetry coming along?

    I also love to listen to music in the car on the way to show, to get in the excitement of it. I could just picture it!

    great to hear about this, scott. Will have to look the group up as i have not heard about them before. I heard a song from this youtube upload of their concert – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYnD-ibnvb4 – sounds good. Has their work inspired or influenced your poetry?

    Hey Scott,
    Thank you for continuing to allow me to be part of your journey. I love how your passion for the little things in life, and present moment living, helps me to get more in touch with the joy in my life. Thanks for turning me on to this band. I am always looking for new music. My son is a singer/songwriter too, and has a new album coming out in August on Asthmatic Kitty. You can go to Bandcamp to hear some of his music: https://angelodeaugustine.bandcamp.com/ or get his new single at: https://store.asthmatickitty.com/products/angelo-de-augustine-truly-gone.

    Keep working to make the world a better place through your amazing poetry and your lobbying for human rights, social justice and for people with developmental disabilities.
    Your friend, always! Wendy

    Great Lone Bellow Concert post Scott. It is nice to be able to share your love of music by going to concerts with Kaylene and Kent. I totally understand your love of concerts because Uncle Tom and I still love going to concerts! There is nothing like seeing a band perform “Live” and then having a chance to meet them after the concert ends is even better!! Sounds like a fun time was had by all!

    I share your enthusiasm for live music too. I have been to that venue many times although not to Wolf’s Den specifically. Sounds like a wonderful evening.
