The Moody Blues Rocked Cleveland!

July 3, 2010 The Moody Blues at Nautica Stage!

Happy Independence Day from The Zajaros Family

It’s been an amazing year, a year that has transformed my life! I want to thank my subscribers for being a huge part of my life over the past two years. I look forward to continuing to get to know each and every one of you.

This is my treat!

Times sure have changed, we used to get frisked before concerts to make sure we didn’t bring in cameras and recording devices, among other things.


With the Internet and the realization that a video can go “viral” and promote a product like nothing else can, and yes, music is a product, the game is on and even rock groups understand the power of the Internet marketing. Heck, The Moody Blues had their web address superimposed on the screen behind them during the intermission!

We live in a different world!

Great music will always touch us in a way few other mediums can. Memories flood back in an instant, whether it’s memories past, the memories of an ex-GI who listened to The Moody Blues from overseas (yours truly) or the 7 year old who was introduced to great music last night, creating new memories that will last a lifetime, with his parents in tow.

If anyone doubts the video quality possible with a Flip MinoHD, the video is worth a thousand words! The sound quality of the Flip MinoHD, always a point of contention with reviewers, isn’t bad at all! My one regret? That I didn’t upgrade to Flip MinoHD Generation II. The 60 minutes available with the Flip MinoHD was extremely disappointing…there was so much great music and I just couldn’t capture it all.


Anyway, forgive the tremors here and there, I didn’t have a monopod or a decent tripod and my arms got tired after a while. All-in-all, it is a decent video and I hope you enjoy it. If you love The Moody Blues, you’ll love it! If you don’t know who they are? Well, give them a listen…they were and remain one of the best rock bands of all-time!

Again, Happy Independence Day to one and all from:

The Zajaros Family!

Wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing. We are attending the 7/9 concert just outside of Rochester–
annual mother daughter bonding event.

I\’ve having problems with it stopping every few seconds so am I doing something wrong? I\’ve tried opening it in Real Player and it still stuck and sadly, it sounds fantastic. So far I\’ve had just slidezone, or bits of it. I\’m biting my nails to the quick here LOL.

But, thank you for having a go, it\’s much appreciated.

No, it is usually the speed of your Internet connection. Try viewing it somewhere with a faster connection or call your ISP and ask them why your videos are constantly buffering. They may be able to suggest a few tips. You might also clean your computer a bit. I use Ad-Aware. You can get it as a free download from That is what the Cox cable guy told me to use when he worked on my system a while back. But ultimately it may be your connection.

If you are accessing the net via a WiFi it will do that and if you have a slower computer it may affect how fast the videos load and play.

I will try to think of another way to get it out to people. Maybe I will segment it and put it up on YouTube. Check in a day or two.

Thanks for watching and commenting!
