Last night we drove to St. Louis to see the Chapin Family Concert. Our family members are huge fans of Harry Chapin, due in large part to Gary, the oldest of the Steffes kids. Gary has been a fan since the early 70s (am I dating you, dear brother-in-law?) and has probably the most extensive knowledge of the group of anyone on the planet.
Harry Chapin was killed in 1981 in an automobile accident in New York City. It was a devastating loss to both the music world and the world in general, as Harry was a true humanitarian. His work with world hunger continues today.
Before the concert, Gary, Joy, Ashley, Eric, Bob and I went to dinner at a lovely place called Reggie's Backstage Restaurant. The food was marvelous and we highly recommend it if you are in the Central Theatre district for a show.
The concert itself was wonderful. Of course, I would have liked to hear more Harry songs, but since each family member is a talented musician of his/her own right, it made sense that we would hear the music of the others. My personal favorites: All my Life's a Circle.
Check this out!

Again, excuse those dates on the photos... I haven't figured out how to change it on my camera yet. Well, ok, I have been too lazy to figure it out on my camera yet!
