Performing tonight was Paul Revere & The Raiders. Paul Revere & The Raiders have performed at Epcot every year since it opened and he claims that he's performed at Walt Disney World on the day the Magic Kingdom opened and has performed somewhere in Walt Disney World every year since 1971; some 39 years straight. I've seen him perform a number of time over the years and have really enjoyed his concerts.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Paul Revere & The Raiders, they are a Pop/Rock group who had a number of hit songs starting in the 60's. Paul Revere is the only original member of the band performing and is now 72 years old. However, he's a high energy guy and a very funny one at that. Some of their hit songs are: Kicks, Indian Reservation, I'm Not Your Stepping Stone, Hungry, Just Like Me and Louie Louie.
Tip: for those of you who don't recognize songs by their title (like me) you can go to either YouTube.com and find a video or a website like Amazon.com and look up the greatest hits album. Amazon will allow you to play a few seconds of each song; just enough to help you recognize (or not) the song.
Even thought this years show was the same as last years and the year before that, etc. etc. I still get a kick out of seeing him perform. He mixes quite a bit of humor in between each song and he gets lots of laughs. He's a really good entertainer! Most of the band, although not original members, have been with him for over 30 years. The exception is the lead singer who has only been with the band for a couple years.
Here's a few pictures from tonight's performance for you to enjoy.
