ILO from the front row, Mohegan Sun 6/12/2010

Post by mommar »

So......I was lucky enough to have a last minute trip to Mohegan last nite, went to Margaritaville at 8:30, Ilo wnet on stage at 9:30, and there was a 1 1/2 hour wait for seats (Mo was more than slightly disappointed) we left M'ville as the group was starving (long day)....went back to M'ville at 10:30 and was told yup go ahead in...it's open seating MO got FRONT seats!!!!!!! for the last 1/2 hour of Ilo's show......very happy, wish I could have seen the whole show, it was terriffic!!!!!!
After Ilo stopped playing I went right up to the stage and started chatting with Ilo, super nice guy, we spoke for a few moments, told him how I've been listening to him since I first heard him w/Jimmy at Gillette....he was very thankful, and thanked me more than once for listening and coming to the show.....while I was speaking with him a line had formed in back of me for pics and autographs, I went back to my seat and someone from the audience came over to me and asked who that was...was he someone famous that they should know...so I explained Ilo's history to her. It was a fun nite, Thanks Mac for giving me a heads-up :D

Here are a few pics!

What fun! We too arrived too late and missed his show at Papa's Ice House in Houston before the JB concert, but did get to see the guys up close as they were leaving. His guitar player is a YOUNG 'UN!!! Nice guys.

Thanks for the pictures and the inside chat with Ilo! He really is a great guy!

I am looking forward to the next time I see and/or chat with Ilo, as I really want to find out the name of the song he has been playing before some of the Jimmy shows lately... Maybe he played it Saturday night... I love it... I would guess it's called "Stranger" or "Sweet Secret Stranger" or something like that... :)
Hey Snake, we need more wine!

Isn't Mailboat Records releasing it?? That would be your answer right there :wink:

I got to meet Ilo at Stephen's Talkhouse last year -what a great guy (and very nice eye candy 8) )

ILO FERREIRA!!!

Quick stab at some of those lyrics:

Stranger??

Hello ma'am... Sweet secret stranger
Gotta go off for a while
Gotta go... some things I gotta do
Please don't take me wrong if I don't show.

It's been a while, not too long
But long enough
We've been playing this game of strangers
See in a while I'll come by
Just to say hello
Never allowed to hold your hand

Chorus
Hold hand aye, oh
say what you gotta say
But don't go break any rules
Cause I can't help
when I can't stay ???

Gotta go down the road toward my rock
Gotta go ...fly somewhere else
Gotta go...see things I gotta see
I don't know if I'll be back to see you again.

So take...take whatever you got to take
And remember something walk with stranger
See I come by just to say hello
NOt allowed to hold your hand

Chorus
Hold hand aye, oh
say what you gotta say
But don't go break any rules
Cause I can't help
when I can't stay for that
Cause I can't help
When I can't stay for that
Cause I can't help
When I can't stay for that
Cause I can't help
When I can't stay for that.

That looks like a different band then the earlier shows at the sandbar and his previous shows at M-Ville. Did he get a new band...

He used to have drums, keyboards, guitar and bass. Now it's just Ilo on guitar, Klem on sax and a new guitarist whose name I don't know.

I was WAY WAY off on the lyrics for Secret Stranger. I got this from ILO.

Re: Stranger song
Hello Nancy,
That song is called Secret Stranger...

Hello my sweet secret stranger
I gotta go off for a while
I gotta go do things I gotta do
Please don’t take me wrong if I don’t show

It’s been a while, not to long, but long enough
We’ve been playing this game of strangers
Once in a while I come by just to say hello
But never allowed to hold your hands

Oh heeee aioooooo…
Say what you gotta say
But don’t go break any rules
‘Cause I can’t help
When I can’t stand for them

I gotta go down the road toward my world
I gotta go fly some where else
I gotta go see things I gotta see
I don’t know if I’ll back to see you again

So take, take what ever you gotta take
And remember once there was a stranger
Once in a while would come by just to say hello
But never allowed to hold your hands

Regards
Ilo

I can't remember for sure what Ilo's young guitar player's name is. Lyle sticks in my mind for some reason. And he does not look like he is old enough to be out of high school!!!! But I think anyone that saw him at the Sandbar will agree that for one so young he is just terrific. I think we will hear more about him in the future.

Ran into them for a bit in The Woodlands, and I'm thinking he said his name is Brian, but it may have been Kyle. I always get those two names mixed up...knew two brothers named Kyle and Brian. :)

We got to talk with Ilo, Kyle & Klem at Landshark Landings and forgot about asking the name of this song :roll: Next time!!! They are a great bunch of guys! Kyle was staying on the same floor as us at the Margaritaville Hotel. I think he is permanently attached to his guitar.

This is a link to Kyle doing what he does best.

I stopped reading at this post. :oops: I was going to have Vicki send ILO a FB today asking him the song title. Nervermind! :lol:
