The rivalry between the Yankees and Red Soxs in New England goes beyond the team. The fans have been battling forever, it divides the workplace, friends, and even family. As a Yankee fan I battle everyday with Red Sox fans…one of the cons living in CT. During the year we keep very close track of what each team is doing, waiting to pounce on the opponent whenever we have the chance. We proudly wear our Jerseys, hang our flags, and decorate our lawns.

This year we got #27…WOO HOOeat our dust Red Sox!!!! We don’t want to leave out our rivals in this grand celebration… how do we include them?? Well, we decorate their lawn………

Yanni Voices Leaves Mother In-Law Speechless May 10, 2009

I was one of the lucky bloggers who was given Yanni Voices tickets with backstage passes. My mother in-law (Yanni’s biggest fan) and father in-law had already purchased tickets (Floor, 5th row). I decided to take my MIL with me so she would be able to come to the Meet and Greet. I packed my camera, video camera, photographer (My FIL), and my videographer (My husband) and headed into the concert.


I had met Ender and Nathan in Nashville at Blissdom09 and couldn’t wait to talk with them again along with meeting Chloe and Leslie. Having been to see Yanni before, I noticed this time there was a much younger crowd present. All waiting with anticipation to see and hear the Voices of Yanni.

I was amazed in the first 10 seconds of the show starting. You can’t help but to get sucked right in as the orchestra creates their heart pounding music.


The Voices- Can you say talented and HOT! These four “kids” are all gorgeous and their voices, all so different, will make you fall in love with them.

Nathan sings in Italian, reminds me of a young Andrea Bocelli. Ender sings in Spanish and dances with Chloe in black leather pants.  You hear the screams of the girls all around you….If only I was 20 again!!

Leslie and Chloe sing their hearts out, changing dresses with each song. By the way, there are a few dresses I’d like to borrow!! Not to mention the shoes. Their talent and stage presence was as if they’ve been doing this for twenty years!

Watching how Yanni looked at them, so proud of their accomplishments, you can can he too was impressed. You can see and feel his passion for his music and for his “Voices”.


The best part was actually watching my mother in-law’s face as she waited to meet everyone. We finally walked into the room and her face light up as they all came up to her. The Voices couldn’t have made her feel any more special and they were so humble as they thanked us for coming to the show. Imagine that, them, thanking us! My Mother In-law was in awe and we have her on tape actually speechless. This is ungeard of in my family- we are never speechless. I have just made daughter in-law #1- Yay me!!

My MIL thought Nathan was so cute that she asked if he had a girlfriend- she was ready to fix him up with her granddaughter(my daughter). Always thinking of the grandkids…hehe. She also kept calling Ender “the little blonde boy”, she really liked him. Check out our backstage experience in the video below!


Thanks to my husband “The Sicilian” for taking the video and to my Father-in-law for taking all the pictures!

We’d love to hear what you think- so don’t be shy- leave a comment!!
