Volunteers were stationed around the front entry holding these signs assisting you to your table.

MusiCares Part 26

One of the items at the silent auction was this special edition Acura with Barbra's (among others) signature on the passengers headrest. Make sure you tell the detail man not to touch the headrest when he cleans the interior. I'd be upset if he wiped it clean. I wouldn't even want any passenger sitting in the seat for fear the back of their head would smear the autograph.

MusiCares Part 25

View of the room before dinner was served. This is from the next to the last table in the room. But at least we were in the aisle.

MusiCares Part 24

Each table had this menu card describing the three-course dinner.

MusiCares Part 23

For those interested, this is what the dessert plate looked like. By the time I realized it would be a good idea to photograph all three courses, I had already finished two of the courses! So this is the only course I have to show you. On top of that, it's a little blurry.

Another unedited shot.

MusiCares Part 3

This photo would look better cropped for composition purposes (and ideally at little bit sharper in the background!) but it captured the atmosphere nicely so I'm leaving it unedited. This is from the final song, I'll Never Say Goodbye - we should only hope so.

MusiCares Part 2

Right after the event.

MusiCares Part 1

Just got back from MusiCares. I'll have more to report in the following days. Haven't read all the coverage elsewhere on the internet yet, so I don't know what I can add that hasn't already been said before. However, it was a stunning evening. Great production, the accoustics were excellent. I'll be posted more photos in the following days.

Funny Lady filming locations Part 4

Looked around but couldn't find the yellow Funny Lady plane.

Funny Lady filming locations Part 3

This scene was filmed at the Santa Monica airport. I wasn't able to shoot it from the same height but the building is still there.

Funny Lady filming locations Part 1

It looks like Southern California was in the middle of a drought when they filmed this scene. The hills are a lot greener now.

Mad about Barbra

Barbra was satirized by Mad Magazine in the '60s. This page was from one of their paperback books. Great illustration of Barbra.
