Maceo Parker & PRince @ Prospect Park

I really was going to stay in Thursday night (June 15, 2006) - it was a long week already. But the prospect of laying out on a blanket under the stars (well you can't see them, but I know they're there) while listening to Maceo Parker and band was too irresistable, so I headed to Prospect Park for the opening night of the Celebrate Brooklyn! free concert series, and set up back behind the gate where there was plenty of room. I couldn't see the show, but it sounded just fine. Of course I couldn't resist getting some photos, so a few songs before the end I worked my way in the gate and through the huge crowd.

It was hard - the place was packed. When the show ended I worked my way back out. Then the encore started right about the time I got back to my blanket, and suddenly there was A LOUD ROAR. Everyone was going nuts. Somebody special was obviously on stage. I ran back to the fence and saw a lady in orange.

I wasn't sure who it was until I finally figured out there was a man in white to her left. Even from however-many-feet back I was, I knew immediately it was none other than Prince. That's when I realized the lady was Tamar - the singer he's been pimpin' for the past year (remember the Nokia Theatre show?). My pics of Prince are so-so, so thanks Noel Mendez for sending me this much clearer one....

The encore was just one song - not really that exciting, except well, IT WAS PRINCE....

If anyone really thought about, they probably figured out Prince would be there. Prince and Maceo play together all the time. Three days before this show Prince was in Manhattan to play the Webbys, and Prince is/was scheduled to play in Bryant Park for Good Morning America on Friday Morning.

Glad to see my 17 month old let me go to this show. Maceo was incredible. And the little Prince surprise was awfully kind of his royal purpleness.

Just got back from the Bryant Park show. It is a bit weird to see Prince and then go to work. Overall a very good three song set minus some really annoying dancers.

Hey Brooklyn Vegan, Can you come to the Brooklyn Blog Fest on June 22 at the Old Stone House in Park Slope. Fifth Avenue btw. 3rd and 4th streets. Check out OTBKB.com for info. We'd love to have you there. You are also invited to speak - lots of Brooklyn bloggers will be there. Let me know.

I got tipped off that Prince would be there but it was great to surprise my friends that I invited.

It was a suprise encore performance!! Well attended and the crowd was alive indeed, never see a star strolled out onto a stage like Prince did even Michael Jackson can't top that! (so to speak) very short funk, two songs, Prince was clean do not recognized the songs also that Prince perform but, they was good. "The Prince Man have class".

What a great night at Celebrate Brooklyn. It makes me feel like Brooklyn has really "arrived". Can't wait to see Los Lonely Boys at the Bandshell on June 22nd!
