Location: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
Hall and Oates Faves:
Fave Song: Philly Mood (I know it's a solo thing but what can I
say, I can't pick just one!)
Fave Video: Rock and Soul Tour, I went to a million of them so I
figured save the gas, get the video!
Fave Concert: Metron, Harrisburg, PA 1989 2 dollars and what a
great freakin' night, did lots of Motown stuff. Although I was at Daryls'
solo concert at Keswick in January 2004 and that was incredible.
Fave Album: Ooh Yeah (although I love all their stuff from Whole
Oats until now) because they kind of returned to their roots in that album
and it was a very impressive release...for me, at least.
Fave Memory: 1983 Rock and Soul concert, sold out show in
Hershey, graduation year for me from High School. Made a bet with another
fan that they would open with Family Man, she said Kiss on My List and I
won. Us kids.
more about Reese!
Have you met Hall and Oates? Yes at last Rock and
Soul Revue Tour 2004 in Hershey with Michael McDonald and AWB.
Almost fainted. I couldn't believe I was "so close" to my icons
of years. Ever since 6th grade and Rich Girl, I was captivated by
the sound and chose to pursue music as a career because of them. I got to
share that info with them. Fortunately I'm a jock with a local radio
station that plays their music and so I thoroughly finagled my way into
meeting them. What a perc!
What is your favorite item in your collection and why?
My most current and only autograph section of local newspaper for their
concert and pictures with them along with tickets. Soon to be displayed in
What's a way you show your love for Hall and Oates?
I try and emulate his style when singing. I have been in music for
years, performing and recording, finding my way and all that...but
Daryl Hall always seems to be a sort of muse in inspiring me to write
better and more soulful. I love the blue eyed soul sounds of Hall
and Oates and have worked hard to sing like Daryl (not perfect or
anything) but I always gravitate toward that style.
I am thankful that God allowed these two to find each
other in that elevator and release such powerful soul filled music to us.
There's not much left of the true soul to soul music out there. I
hope they keep punching out the stuff as long as they possibly can. By the
way, believe it or not, I'm the male and that's my fiancÚ with the red
Reese had a once in a lifetime experience!
There's the whole group!
Maybe they will make a new band! =)
