Connecticut Forum Music Fest

Last night, I attended the Connecticut Forum Music Fest with my father, Stanley, and Art and Mel Roti. It was a good time. I love music and enjoy sharing it with my father. He raised me on classic rock from the 1960’s and 1970’s. I remember that he liked to play it loud. Led Zeppelin, The Who, Pink Floyd, The Allman Brothers, The Beatles, Black Sabbath, Bruce Springsteen, Credence Clearwater Revival, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Grand Funk Railroad, The Rolling Stones, and so many other great artists’ albums were in constant rotation at our house.

So, it was logical that I would bring him to the Forum Music Fest last night. He and I have been to many concerts together, but nothing recently. Life has been busy. He and I are both big Patti Smith fans, and she was at the Fest along with John Legend and John Forte. The three person panel was moderated by Bill Flanagan of MTV. Dad and I saw Patti Smith open for Bob Dylan in her comeback concert at Western Connecticut State University in 1996. It was a great show. She has been prolific again since her 16 year layoff between 1980 and 1996. She moved to Detroit and raised a family. There is more to the story and we got a little insight last night Patti Rocks.

Forte and Legend were equally well spoken as they discussed their careers, inspirations, and families. It was a fun night at The Bushnell in Hartford. Each played a song. It is amazing how you know when you are in the presence of talent.

Here is the start of last night's Junior 9-11 year old Short Track #mountainbike race. This is the next generation of #cycling enthusiasts. @the_ccap #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstspikes #mountainbiking 🚵‍♀️🏆❤️ Not bad. Third place in the series for #singlespeed division after doing two of the four #westrocksuperprestige #mountainbike races. Fun just to ride strongly. #teamhorstsports #horstspikes @horsteng #mountainbiking @seven_cycles #sevencycles Incredible June night. One day after the #solstice for the #westrocksuperprestige finale. @the_ccap @horsteng #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #mountainbiking #solstice #railtrail ride:  #teamhorstjuniorsquad #teamhorstsports #hopriverstateparktrail #mountainbike The second (our first) #windingtrails Summer Off-Road #Triathlon Series race of the year was a big success. Three Livingston's raced including @trailrunningmom and the first "Grand Feast" of the season with the Schulz Clan helped us refuel. #teamhorstsports #mountainbiking #trailrunning I ran the #greylocktrailrace on #fathersday and @trailrunningmom loosened her legs after #manitousrevenge by running the 5K with Little D. Shep took 5+ minutes off of last year's time. #mountgreylock The Western Massachusetts Athletic Club had to share #greylockglen with the #harrypotter festival, which was kind of crazy. It was a weird combination of people. I'm sticking with he  #trailrunning community. @trailrunningmom finished #manitousrevenge 54 miles in 14:41:32. Fantastic! She is pumped and primed for #hardrock100 next month. #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders #pursuitstrong #pursuitfitness #trailrunning @ultraspire #ultraspire @altrarunning #altrarunning #ultrarunning #catskillsmountains 🏃🏻⛰
