Breakwater Performs at the World Cafe Live 1/21/2017

I really liked Shady's response on my Thankful Thursday post: "I use my blog as a scrapbook of my life." In the past few years, I've been trying to do that too and I want to continue with this blog as a scrapbook of my life.

Last night I trekked to the World Cafe Live in Philadelphia to see Breakwater, a 70s funk/R&B band that my co-worker's father is in. Her father is the lead singer of Breakwater and her 20-year-old brother is the keyboardist. I wanted to go to show support and well, I can never turn down a concert. :)

Danielle, her significant other (Lee), and I weren't seated together because tickets went quickly. I was seated at a table with people I didn't know, but that was okay. I quickly made conversation with a family I was sitting with. They were really fun and we had fun chatting until I had to leave to go to Rite Aid because my old SD card broke. I came back in 15 minutes, though, with a new SD card. We resumed conversation before Breakwater came on. I only missed a bit of the opening, which was fortunate.

Breakwater was amazing. Danielle came and found me, then brought me onto the dance floor. I met Lee and he was such a great person. We all danced along to the beats and just had a blast. I was sweating by the end of the night.

Before I left for the evening, I had a chance to meet Danielle's father and brother, Wes. Before I caught Lyft home, Danielle, Lee and I took a selfie together. It was so much fun.


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I appreciate a good 70s style funk/R&B band and Breakwater has a great look and sound. It's so cool that your co-worker Danielle's father is lead singer and that you had a chance to meet and have a picture taken with him. 2017 is off to a great start attending this funky gig at the World Cafe Live in Philly.

    I wish you a wonderful week ahead, dear friend JM!

  2. '70s R&B/Funk? Yes, please.

    Looks like you had a great time.
