|He isn't Mr. Wordplay for nothing|
And to give you an idea how the show went, let the lyrics of one of his song describe the event ...
It's "A-W-E-S-O-M-E" ................ he "fu*kin did it"!!!
The show's front act, the used to be random girl but now a certified recording artist named Zendee was introduced by no other than Jason Mraz himself while wearing his signature fedora hat, t-shirt and jeans. It was a delight to hear her perform. The powerful voice managed to grab my attention as she belted those high notes and then returned to do a duet with Jason Mraz on the popular song "LUCKY".
I love how songwriters play with words and it's not hard to understand why I'm a big fan of Mr. Wordplay. His lyrics promote worry free philosophy and lots of gratitude, and really easy listening tunes that evoked warmth and happy feelings, the kinds we need to hear and ponder to these days.
There were many highlights of the show and for me those that stood out are the ones where he played one of my personal fave; A Beautiful Mess, the acapela moment he did with the song PLANE, no guitars included, the highly revved up number with one of the member of his band, Mona Tavakoli performing "You Fuckin Did It", the mash up of his song "I'm Yours" with Bob Marley's "Little Birds" and of course the heartfelt song "The Woman I Love" while leaving these words to his audience “We all know how the ladies can go a little bit crazy sometimes. They cry and they whine and they forget how great they are. And the worst thing about having them say nasty things about us, is when they start saying nasty things about themselves.” ..... true, right?
