April 2017 - #Atozchallenge - 'Zooks made it to Z!

Z is for ZZ Top

ZZ was the other band at Bone Bash XI and they were terrific.  It was the only time we've seen them live as their ticket prices are a bit higher than I like to pay, even though they have been to the Mountain Winery a couple of times, which is a venue we like a lot.


I love the way they do their choreographed steps as they play and their microphone stands and the skull in the drums changed colors throughout the show.  It was pretty cool.



They used the big screen to good advantage, showing clips from their MTV videos as they played the songs.  They also played a few using their sheepskin guitars.  


Toward the end they changed their jackets to ones that lit up.  That was pretty neat too.  Wish I had gotten a shot of them in the dark!



And we have come to the end of the A to Z Challenge for this year.  I missed 4 letters because my pictures weren't scrapbooked yet and I could have just shown the pictures, but my theme was scrapbooking my concerts and I didn't want to rush my pages just to get through them.

I learned one very important thing about myself during the past month...I may take too many pictures!  I did enjoy reliving the concerts as I scrapbooked and I did try some new things and used some of the tools I have that I don't use a lot.  All positive things in my mind.  I'll be writing my reflection post for May 8 and am looking forward to reading what others experienced this month as well.  Definitely going to participate next year and after a week or so off, I'll be thinking of a new theme.



Hope you have enjoyed looking at my concert scrapbook.  I know I have had fun sharing it.

  1. Congratulations Janet - a job well done! It's been fun following along and seeing what you'd come up with for each letter. And after all this, I think it's time for some rest. I'm spelling that zzzzz...

  2. ZZ Top is a fun concert to attend, and it looks like you enjoyed it! You do a beautiful job of scrapbooking, I don't have the patience for it. I think you did just right by not rushing to complete the pages you weren't ready with. The nice thing about the A to Z Challenge is that we can make it our own and play by our own rules! I'll be doing a reflections post too, and I'll definitely be back next year with something, maybe another story, since that went over pretty well. For today there is just that wonderful sense of completion and sitting back to say "Ahhhhhh, it's done!" :-) Congratulations!

  4. ZZ Top! Of course!

    Nice job putting together your scrapbook and sharing it with all of us during the April Challenge. Congratulations on making through most of the alphabet in 2017 (the missing letters were okay as you really put a lot of work into those pages).
