Impossible Science with Jason Latimer at Discovery Cube OC

 We visited as a guest of the venue This summer, my youngest son has developed a love for magic. He started enjoying learning different card tricks and then when I took him to see his first magic show in Las Vegas, he was hooked. After seeing his first magic show, he started watching countless YouTube videos to learn tricks and asked us to purchase him new things to master his tricks successfully. When I found out that the world famous magician, Jason Latimer, was coming to Discovery Cube OC to perform his Impossible Science show, I immediately went online to get tickets to bring my son. I waited to surprise my son with tickets to the show. When we arrived at Discovery Cube OC, he thought that we were going to spend the day exploring the interactive museum, but when I told him about Jason Latimer, he screamed! He had heard about the world renowned Jason Latimer and couldn’t wait for the show to start. He waited anxiously until they opened the doors, and he ran into the theater to find the perfect seat. There was a small pre-show, and then the lights dimmed, and Jason Latimer took the stage. The show was one of the best magic shows that I have ever seen that also incorporated a lot of science. My son was immersed into the world of magic throughout the entire performance and was left wondering how he was able to perform his magical tricks. During the show he whispered into my ear, “this is amazing.” Once the show ended, the crowd cheered as Jason Latimer took a bow. As everyone started to leave, he welcomed children to come and get an autograph and/or take a photo with him. My son pulled a playing card out of his pocket and handed it to Jason Latimer to sign. Then we took a photo with him before leaving to explore the museum. Jason Latimer’s Impossible Science show will only be at Discovery Cube OC until August 6th. Tickets are priced at $5 per person (not including the cost of admission to Discovery Cube OC). Tickets are available online or at the box office. Discovery Cube OC is located at 2500 N. Main Street, Santa Ana, CA...

Ultimate Country Music Fun at the Shipkicker Country Music Festival

Ultimate Country Music Fun at the Shipkicker Country Music Festival

 We were invited as a guest of the venue. The Queen Mary hosted its 3rd Annual Shipkicker Music Festival, and it was the place to be for Southern California country music fans.  Not only did you have a full day of music, but there were also food and beverage vendors, merchandise vendors and the Shipkicker Saloon with line dancing and amazing performances on three different stages. Jake Parr is an amazing up and coming singer, songwriter, and musician who opened things up on the main stage.  This talented young man is an OC native growing up in Tarzana, CA and after just a few seconds into his set, he had the crowd on their feet and dancing to his music.  After his set, Jake took to the crowd to shake hands and mingle with his fans.  It is one of the things I love most about country music; the performers are just down home folks who love to mingle with their fans. Next up was the winner of the Shipkicker’s Battle of the  Bands, James Rensink.  James’ music is a blend of pop and indie with country and is the new wave of country music that is hitting the airwaves. Honey Country is a 3 part vocal harmonies Southern California Country Pop group that Rolling Stone named as one of the top 10 country artists you need to know.  These young ladies had so much energy and had the crowd singing and dancing along to their hits like “Blood from a stone.”  You may have seen these talented ladies on VH1’s Make a Band Famous, where they were semi-finalists. Daniel Bonte and the Bona Fide didn’t disappoint with their energetic set of rock-n-roll, blues, country music that had the fans on their feet and singing along to their original songs.  My favorite moment of the set was when Daniel led the crowd in a sing-along of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” as a tribute to the late Chris Cornell.  This band is a favorite of So Cal and play gigs throughout South Orange County. Our favorite of the night was The Swon Brothers.  These talented artists finished third on the fourth season of the voice and were 2014 CMA Vocal Duo of the Year nominees.  Their set was striped down and raw, just the guys and their guitars.  The audience loved their song “Don’t Call Me” and erupted in cheers to a cover of Garth Brook’s “Friends in Low Places.”  If you get a chance to see them live, you will walk away as lifetime fans. Jerrod Riemann always delivers a high energy performance and entertains the crowd.  After performing “God Made a Woman,” he told the crowd he was happy his pain is their pleasure.  The fans went crazy when he had Lee Brice join him on stage to perform the latest duo, “A Little More Love.” The night’s headliner, Lee Brice, did not disappoint.  The fans happily sang along with his hits, “Drinking Class,” “I Drive Your Truck,” and “Parking Lot Party” and when he slowed things down to perform, “That Don’t Sound Like You,” the crowd swayed back and forth and couples held each other close. The crowds were entertained by an amazing group of talented artists and partner that with the beautiful So Cal weather, the 2017...

Marvelous Marvel Universe Live!

Marvelous Marvel Universe Live!

 We attended as a guest of the venue Being a mom of two boys, I have learned to love superheroes. My boys are constantly educating me and teaching me about the lore behind the comic book stories. When my boys first learned about Marvel Universe Live that was coming to the Honda Center, they asked if I could take them. It was the day after we were scheduled to arrive back from a week in Maui, and I was worried that we would all be too tired to enjoy the show, but my boys were showered, dressed and ready to go hours before it was time to leave. On our way to the Honda Center, my kids got even more excited about the show reading about Naz and her children’s experience going behind-the-scenes. Her kids got to learn about the costumes and the cool moves that the superheroes do during the show. Because traffic was worse than ever before, we arrived just five minutes before the show began. We took our seats and got ready to go on a thrilling adventure where the Avengers attempt to stop Loki from stealing the Wand of Watoomb. The performance was full of action, pyrotechnics, and fun. As my kids have gotten older, they have slowly started to outgrow many stage shows, and I was thrilled that Feld Entertainment created a show that is perfect for younger and older children. I had flashbacks of when my kids were toddlers as I got them popcorn and a snow cone in a themed plastic cup to enjoy during the show. It was one of my favorite nights of the summer. Marvel Universe Live is only in Orange County until July 23rd. Don’t miss having a night full of action and fun by taking your kids to see Marvel Universe Live at the Honda...
