My Day With My Favorite Actor, Kevin Costner
Tuesday, July 29, 2008  8:05:00 PM

by Penni Lynn Smith (Weston)

Free Concert at Ventura, California



I spent Saturday, July 26th, 2008, with my favorite actor, Kevin Costner.  He gave a free concert to his favorite place where he grew up.  Lots of people are not aware that Kevin has a band named Modern West and sings! Well, yes he does. And he does it quite well. The crowd was enormous. Lots of people only came to visit the quaint little shops and resteraunts and such. They ended up being blown away by one talented actor/director/producer/singer/musician/all American guy.  I have the sample CD which includes songs called: Five Minutes From America, Red River, Every Intention, and Long Hot Night.  I couldn't even begin to say how amazing this day was. There were people there who'd bought a $500 ticket for the red carpet premiere, to be with Kevin, and to see Swing Vote.  I wasn't one of those people, however, when he came down the red carpet to shake hands, sign old year books, take photos as much as he could, he was within five or six inches of me. I wanted to shake his hand,most certainly, but I got a smile as I stood there calmly and watched others freak out around me. My dear niece, who took me there, got the handshake and I'm thrilled she did. She didn't have to go bonkers like some in the crowd did. I did get to stand at the foot of the stage during practice. I was there, right there so close and yet so far. And when the concert began to get started, Kevin walked down the aisle, shaking hands again, accepting his picture taken, and what have you. I was just inches away and a very rude lady pushed me out of the way where she could get closer, making me lose any chance I had to get a handshake. Oh well. She didn't get one either. All the same, I had a grand time with my dearest niece and it is something I shall never, ever forget.
