I just found out I’ve got a date with Michael Franti here in Portland, Maine on June 16! Okay, not quite…my husband just nabbed tickets for us, but with the show 2 1/2 months away, I’m already giddy.
Michael Franti, and his band Spearhead, bring sunshine with them wherever they go. If you haven’t had a chance to take in one of their shows, you’re truly missing out on an energizing and engaging experience that stays with you well beyond the night’s end.
Just this past June (2011), during his show at Portland’s Ocean Gateway Terminal Scot (hubby) received a most excellent Father’s Day treat…a moment with Franti as “Band Leader”!
Scot is a pretty well known guy around town, so it was no surprise that many of his friends were in attendance to cheer on the special moment. In fact, a friend of his happened to be running the spotlight that was on them…and another friend was the show photogrpher (Leslie Wagner). She sent us the incredible pic above.
