>>> CHECK-IN: 10 decembrie 2015 (intr-o seara de joi) @ Teatrul de Vara “Radu Beligan” din Bacau. RAND 21, LOCUL 56.
Sincera sa fiu, nu am luat niciodata in considerare sa merg la un concert cu Horia Brenciu! In afara de Untold Festival, Tomorrowland, Wireless Festival, Parov Stelar Band (electro swing), Hurts, Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, Wilkinson, The Weeknd, One Republic, Tinie Tempah si muuuulti altii la care am mers la concerte sau la care imi doresc sa merg… va spun cinstit, Horia Brenciu nu a fost pe lista! M-am capatat cu 2 invitatii la #myway, iar colegele mele de la birou mi-au promis ca va fi tare!
Si au avut dreptate! A fost frumos! A fost altceva! A fost… exact ce aveam nevoie! Un tribut Frank Sinatra, in ton cu starea mea de atunci!
Astfel, “MY WAY” reprezinta un omagiu adus lui Frank Sinatra, la 100 de ani de la nasterea sa. Francis Albert aka Frank Sinatra a fost cantaret si actor american ce s-a nascut pe 12 decembrie 1915. A murit in 1998, lasand in urma sa marturii muzicale ce apartin genului swing. Concertul sustinut de Horia Brenciu a reinviat glorioasa epoca a muzicii de swing aducand in prim plan un gen care a facut istorie in lumea filmului, a muzicii si, fara indoiala, in inima mea. Piese ca “My way”, “Love and marriage”, “Something stupid”, “Strangers in the night” m-au trimis cu gandul la Tom&Jerry, la coloana sonora a nenumaratelor filme, la serialul “Married with Children aka Familia Bundy” (1987-1997).
De-a lungul spectacolului ce a durat mai bine de 2 ore (start: 19:30), Horia Brenciu si The HB Orchestra Big Band au omagiat si alti artisti ai genului, printre care si Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr, Big Crosby, Ray Charles, Tony Bennett, Fred Astaire, George Gershwin si chiar al nostru Gica Petrescu. Artistul roman ar fi implinit si el anul acesta 100 de ani de la nastere.
Cand HB a cantat melodia New York, New York a lui Frank & Nancy Sinatra (fiica lui Frank Sinatra), m-am simtit ca si Carrie Brandshaw din <Sex and the City>. Ce bine mi-ar fi stat cu un Cosmopolitan in mana!
La un moment dat, artistul a coborat de pe scena si a impartit niste albume. Unul dintre ele s-a nimerit in mainile lui… Fabian – un fan inrait Horia Brenciu! La indemnul artistului de a urca pe scena impreuna cu prietena sa Andreea, acesta a cerut-o de sotie in fata salii pline! Da! Ea a spus DA!
HB a continuat spectacolul alaturi de invitatele sale, Julie Mayaya (castigatoarea celui de-al doilea sezon al concursului “Vocea Romaniei”) si Adina Raducan (castigatoarea sezonul 4 la “X Factor”), ambele avandu-l ca antrenor pe Horia Brenciu. Ce voci incredibile! Imbracate in rochii stralucitoare, cele 2 voci aproape ca au ridicat sala in picioare. Sincera sa fiu, nu prea urmaresc aceste emisiuni, dar recunosc talentul lor, acum ca le-am ascultat live!
PS: Fiti indulgente si nu ma criticati prea aspru pentru calitatea fotografiilor! In apararea mea, imi uitasem camera foto acasa!
>>> CHECK-IN: 10th of December 2015 (on a thursday night) @ “Radu Beligan” Theater from Bacau. 21st Row, Seat no. 56.
Just to be clear, I never even considered to go to a concert with Horia Brenciu! Besides Untold Festival, Tomorrowland, Wireless Festival, Parov Stelar Band (electro swing), Hurts, Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, Wilkinson, The Weeknd, One Republic, Tinie Tempah and many others I can’t think of right now … I am telling you, Horia Brenciu was not on my list! I received 2 tickets for the tour called #myway, and my colleagues from the office promised me that we will have fun, that HB rocks!
And they were right! HB really rocks! It was something else! It was… exactly what I needed! A Frank Sinatra Tribute, just to clear my state of mind!
So, “MY WAY” represents a tribute for Frank Sinatra, at exactly 100 years of his birth. Francis Albert aka Frank Sinatra was an American singer and actor, born on 12th of December 1915. He died in 1998, leaving behind many great songs belonging to swing music genre. The concert of Horia Brenciu revived the glory of those years and brought into the spotlight a music genre that made history in the movies, and no doubt, in my heart. Songs like “My way”, “Love and marriage”, “Something stupid”, “Strangers in the night” sent me to the days when I was watching Tom&Jerry, to the music from the TV Series “Married with Children aka Th Bundys” (1987-1997).
During the 2 hour-show (start: 19:30), Horia Brenciu and The HB Orchestra Big Band paid respects to other artists of the music genre, like Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr, Big Crosby, Ray Charles, Tony Bennett, Fred Astaire, George Gershwin and ours Gica Petrescu. The Romanian artist would have turned this year 100 years from his birth.
When HB interpreted the song New York, New York a lui Frank & Nancy Sinatra (the daughter of Frank Sinatra), I felt just like Carrie Brandshaw from <Sex and the City>. If only I had a Cosmopolitan in my hands!
At some point during the show, the artist got off the stage and gave away some of his albums. One of them got into the hands of… Fabian – one of his fans! He got on the stage along with his girlfriend Andreea, and he proposed to her in front of the entire crowd! Yes! She said YES!
HB continued the show singing with Julie Mayaya (the winner of the second season of “The Voice of Romania”) and Adina Raducan (the winner of the fourth season of “The X Factor”), in which they both had Horia Brenciu as mentor. What incredible voices! They both had shiny dresses, and the crowd was impressed. To be honest, I don’t really watch these TV Shows, but I trully admit their talent, now that I listened them live!
PS: Be indulgent and don’t criticize me too harsh regarding the quality of the images! In my defense, I forgot to bring my camera!
I did it in my way! A.
