Rahel Solomon and Kacie McDonnell Spotted, Air Supply, Babies,


Happy Monday Morning. I had a busy last weekend in August. I was a guest at Golden Nugget on Friday night to photograph Kathie Lee Gifford, who had an appearance that their International Wine Festival. Then headed back to Philly to see Air Supply at Sugarhouse Casino. Both casinos were lucky for me as I played my favorite Willie Wonka slot machine.  Back home this is what was happening…

No one was All of Out Love on Saturday night, as Air Supply stopped by Sugarhouse, as they tour America this summer. Sugarhouse has recently completed and opened a free parking garage, as well as an event space. I’ve covered several events there already and was wondering how it would transform into a concert venue. Very nicely, very intimately, great sound. Seated the space holds 450 people.  Towards the end of the concert guests were dancing in the aisle. I’ve always loved Air Supply, and didn’t realize at the time of the popularity that they were/are really a rock band as much as an easy listening group.


Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock of Air Supply still have amazing voices despite passing their 41st year as a band.

They sing some of the most memorable songs, mostly about love and devotion. It was great.


  • Sweet Dreams
  • Even the Nights Are Better
  • Just As I Am
  • Every Woman in the World
  • Here I Am (Just When I Thought I Was Over You)
  • I Adore You
  • The One That You Love (performed in audience)
  • Lost in Love
  • Making Love Out of Nothing at All8-29-2016 12-04-15 PMAaron Mclain shreds ferociously on guitar, as Russell Hitchcock sings



No doubt a lot of babies were conceived during Air Supply songs, here’s a few of the babies born in our area this past week. Chef Evan Turney celebrated the birth of his son last week, and his new eatery Butcher Bar opens later this week.  Wife and mother Carla Montalvo is ecstatic as well.



Congrats to Jason and Marlo Dilk’s of Slice and “P’unk Burger” fame.Rahel

Cannoli Cake at Ralph’s Italian Restaurant. AMAZING!! The lasagna was good too, but not as good as you know my favorite – D’Angelo’s. Which is even better than my Italian grandmothers, sorry mom.
