The weather was warm. I wore jeans.

The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.

The concert itself was amazing! Cyndi Lauper has such an unbelievable voice that can outsing anyone. She has such an incredible energy and with humor too. I highly recommend it if anyone gets a chance to see her live. I will definitely see her...continued

Cyndi Lauper is a great singer performer. There are those who can sing- Streisand- those who can perform-Spears but Cyndy puts both together and truly entertains. I was not much of a fan before but now I am.

Description

“I just wanted to do some music from my childhood,” says Cyndi Lauper, discussing her latest album, At Last. “When I hear those songs, I remember how I grew up, and the neighborhood, and how the music affected the people around me, and what those times were like.”

The music from those times ran the gamut; it was Edith Piaf and Billie Holiday, Tony Bennett and The Animals. It wasn’t the genre that was important; it was the soul in the music. And soul is something that Cyndi’s got in abundance. You can hear it all over At Last, on which Cyndi sings songs that she’s loved for her entire life. But they aren’t simply cover versions: “I didn’t go into it to just sing above a track, I went into it to rip apart the song and find a new soul and tell a real story.”

While the pop charts have always welcomed, and still do, the same old songs with the same arrangements sung by new voices, Cyndi wasn’t looking for the easy hit with At Last. In her hands, the art of interpretation is more than just having a great voice; it’s also about having a new vision for a familiar song.
