Wow – I had such a wonderful time at the Greek Theater on Saturday watching Chris Botti and his incredible guests! It was off the charts — definitely one of the best concerts I have ever attended. Botti is really the best jazz trumpet player in the world, not to mention absolutely adorable! Every one of the musicians in his band were incredible with Billy Kilson on drums and Geoffrey Keezer on the piano.
There was a spotlight performance by the very handsome Uruguayan guitarist Leonardo Amuedo — his performance of “Hallelujah” was mesmerizing.
Following Leonardo was another soloist performance by the gorgeous Caroline Campbell on violin who also made appearances alongside Botti.
The fabulous Lisa Fischer sang alongside Botti on some incredible classics, exciting the crowd as they walked off stage into the audience!
As if the evening wasn’t spectacular enough, I attended the concert with my friend Sara Schnare. She’s a personal friend of Chris and Caroline so we got to enjoy the backstage party — what a sensation! He is currently on a world tour so I absolutely recommend buying tickets if he is coming to your city!
