Andy Grammer! Alive @ Five tonight 7/30 at 5pm! Hottest concert of the summer!



Sing along! 
LYRICS:

 Honey, I'm Good 

By Andy Grammer
Nah nah, honey I'm good
I could have another but I probably shouldn't
I've got somebody at home
It's been a long night here, and a long night there
And these long, long legs are damn near everywhere
Hold up now, you look good, I will not lie
But if you ask where I'm staying tonight I gotta be like
Oh baby, no baby, you got me all wrong baby
My baby's already got all my love
So nah nah, honey I'm good
I could have another but I probably shouldn't
I've got somebody at home, and if I stay I might not leave alone
No, honey I'm good, I could have another but I probably shouldn't
I've gotta bid you adieu and to another I will stay true
(Hoo hoo wooh true) I will stay true
(Hoo hoo wooh true) I will stay true
(Hoo hoo wooh true)
(Hoo hoo wooh)
Now better men than me have failed
Drinking from that unholy grail
Now check it out, I've got her and she got me
And you've got that ass, but I kindly gotta be like
Oh baby, no baby, you got me all wrong baby
My baby's already got all my love
So nah nah, honey I'm good
I could have another but I probably shouldn't
I've got somebody at home, and if I stay I might not leave alone
No, honey I'm good, I could have another but I probably shouldn't
I've gotta bid you adieu and to another I will stay true
(Hoo hoo wooh true) I will stay true
(Hoo hoo wooh true) I will stay true
(Hoo hoo wooh true)
(Hoo hoo wooh)
Oh, I'm sure you, sure you will make somebody's night
But oh, I'll show you, show you it sure as hell's not mine
Oh no, honey I'm good
I could have another but I probably shouldn't
I've got somebody at home, and if I stay I might not leave alone
No, honey I'm good, I could have another but I probably shouldn't
I've gotta bid you adieu and to another I will stay
Nah nah, honey I'm good
I could have another but I probably shouldn't
I've got somebody at home, and if I stay I might not leave alone
No, honey I'm good, I could have another but I probably shouldn't
I've gotta bid you adieu and to another I will stay true
(Hoo hoo wooh true) I will stay true
(Hoo hoo wooh true) I will stay true
(Hoo hoo wooh true) I will stay true
(Hoo hoo wooh) I will stay
Singing out oh oh oh oh oh (Hoo hoo wooh true)
Singing out oh oh oh oh oh (Hoo hoo wooh true)
Singing out oh oh oh oh oh (Hoo hoo wooh true)
Singing out oh oh oh oh oh (Hoo hoo wooh true)
I will stay true

Jazz up July - Wednesday, July 15 at 6:30pm Tito Puente, Jr. & His Orchestra

Jazz-Up July, presented by Stamford Town Center in partnership with Morgan Stanley on
the Budweiser Stage – Wednesday, July 15 at 6:30pm


               Tito Puente, Jr. & His Orchestra
The comparison is inevitable. How could it be otherwise? Tito Puente Jr. carries his father with him – imprinted on his physical being and locked in his soul. It’s in his looks, his joy, and his music. Tito, Jr. is determined to nurture the musical legacy left by his father and reveres the magnificent, lasting impact his father had on our musical lives. “People who don’t know anything about Latin music know my father and people always, always smile when they say my father’s name,” he confides. “That is a very special gift I have been given.” Tito, Jr.’s latest album, “Got Mambo?” is a mixture of the old and the new as he takes a musical departure into some powerful new music he can truly call his own. Bridgemanagementinc.com

              
               PANA!
A Fresh-Latin-Rock band combining reggae, funk, and Latin sounds. Influenced by musicians like Bob Marley, Santana, and Stevie Wonder, PANA!'s live performances are filled with high-energy and delightful tunes with messages of love, social consciousness, and living life positively. PanaMusik.com

Blog Share NYTimes: Finding ‘Slight Suburbia’ in Stamford, Conn.

Finding ‘Slight Suburbia’ in Stamford, Conn.  Exerpt: "Passing over some of the older apartment houses in the area, she zeroed in on 75 Tresser, a five-story building that opened a little more than a year ago in a prime downtown location, the former site of the Stamford Advocate. There, she was able to find a two-bedroom two-bathroom apartment on the top floor for $3,010. And when she signed a 12-month lease last spring, she got two months free. (Two-bedrooms now rent for slightly more — around $3,100 a month — Ms. Tuttle said, something she attributed to the seasonal influx of recent college graduates, many of whom share two-bedrooms with roommates."
