Taylor Made

When you take your seat at the Greek Theater, you must remind yourself that it is situated amid one of the world's major metropolises. Sitting there, you feel as though you are in a much smaller or at least a much more remote place (although if that were the case you might not be listening to musical acts on the same magnitude). There are no bad seats at the Greek. It is a small venue, nestled in to the mountains with trees crowding in along the edges to remind you that you are surrounded by nature. It is as much a joy to be at the venue as it is to listen to the music.

We had the pleasure of spending an evening at the Greek with James Taylor. He made the evening feel very intimate with his warmth and humor. He's the kind of artist that always surprises you with the number of hits he has had over the years. His voice is still simply amazing. If you haven't listened to his music in a while, go listen now. You won't be able to resist a smile.
