There was a bar and grill that closed many months ago in Dearborn, but it finally opened up again in September. It was just a few miles away, so we had to check it out. It was nicely redone and a bit more modern with electronic dart boards, video games, about 5 or 6 big screen TVs and this electronic juke box. We happened to sit right in front of it, so I was forced to stare at it.
I was in awe of all of its blue flashing lights and various songs and artists were glowing back at me. It said it had over a million songs. Yeah, ok, but surely not the guys!?
My curiosity finally got the better of me and I daringly went up to the selection pane. It was 2 credits a song and it was already preloaded by some kind patron. So… I cautiously and excitedly punched in… I L V O L O and with some trepidation, I hit the enter key!
Much to my surprise and delight, TWO of their albums popped up! Ok, let’s just say this is my favorite Saturday afternoon bar! 🙂 They had the Grande Amore album, as well as the “Takes Flight” album. I didn’t want to scare off the patrons, so I played it safe – lol – and chose Delilah! There were a lot of people in there, so it was only somewhat audible, but a few said “hey, good song!” As I sat there with a smug grin on my face, thinking, if they only knew who they were listening to! 🙂 Needless to say I was pretty happy.
Ok, next time I was there, I tried it again. Not sure how, but THIS time, FIVE albums came up, including Noche Sin Dia, as the single and others’ albums they were featured on! OMG, almost ALL of their albums? We could have an entire concert of them and drive out the whole bar! Ha, ha!
Just to be nice, I played Delilah again and a few others in English.
What electronic jukebox you say? The APP is called AMI Music. You can download it from your favorite App store and once you do, it asks for your location, or you can set it that way, I can’t remember now. Anyway, when you set your location, just click on it and it tells you all of the nearby bars/restaurants that have this digital jukebox. The songs are mostly 2 credits and a credit is a quarter or fifty cents – I can’t remember, but not bad, huh? 🙂
So, those that are daring enough – download this app and tell us where you can hear the guys! 🙂 In taking a quick look, they even have it at some nearby bowling alleys around here and other restaurants. You might be surprised! If we can’t see them in concert, annoy your local neighbors, or maybe even go out of town! It also appears to be at several “mens” clubs, like Vet’s Posts, Stitt Posts, American Legion, Moose Lodges, etc. (see picture below…)
I imagine this is international, so any of you in other countries, let us know if it works for you? 🙂
p.s. It’s also Boss’s Day – not sure if international or not, but all you bosses out there, current and retired – have an awesome day – we couldn’t do it without you (ok, maybe we could if you ever saw the movie “9 to 5?” 🙂 ) But have a great day, anyway!!
