Today Bob, Marcy, John and I traveled to the Silver Star Casino in Philadelphia, Mississippi. It had been a long time since John and I had been there so we got new player cards and money to play on. Bob and Marcy had free tickets to see Jerry Lee Lewis so they went to the ticket office to pick them up while we were getting our player cards. Afterwards we all met up and had lunch at the Casino’s buffet. The food was great with lots of things to chose from. Bob and Marcy had lots of points so they played on Casino points all day. That’s the only way to play. LOL I think we all came away with a little cash. Pretty good for playing penny slots but a good pass time.
Shortly before 8:00 p.m. we made our way over to the Casino’s arena for the concert. Several opening acts including, Badfinger, Climax and Rare Earth performed. It was very very loud. Each opening act played three songs then Jerry Lee Lewis’ sister, Linda Gail Lewis, came out on stage and wowed the audience with Jerry Lee style piano playing and singing. She was great. Right after she completed her set Jerry Lee walked out on stage and took his place at the piano. Even though he is a little stooped over and moving slower he can still play a mean piano. He played and sang for about 45 minutes straight without a break in between songs. When he was finished he got up and quietly walked off the stage while the band still played. We enjoyed the show. Thanks to Mom and Dad for treating us to lunch and the concert.
Below are some pictures John took with his phone.
Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
