What an unbelievable show tonight at the Hollywood Bowl! I have had the privilege of seeing the PFC Band perform at venues all over the world, but there was something truly magical about seeing them perform tonight at the bowl. When they took the stage in front of a crowd of over 10,000 fans, a wave of emotion ran through me that I was wholly unprepared for. I remembered the experience of taking Jason Tamba and Mermans Mosengo on a tour of LA and looking down at the Hollywood Bowl from high up in the hills. “It won’t be long before you two are performing there,” I told them. They looked at me somewhat nonplussed and smiled it off. And tonight, seeing them share a stage with Baaba Maal in front of such a crowd was a special moment– one that was made all the more memorable when Baaba Maal invited us all on stage to close out the show!
The band is headed to Europe in the next few days– if you are anywhere near any of the cities they are playing in, I highly suggest you check out their show!
