Next up for this near-flawless performer was the bluesy, Adult Top 40 hit “My Favorite Mistake”.  Accompanying Ms. Crow on part of her drummer’s drum kit, was the pocket-sized, aggressively adorable five-year old son of Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey, Levi.  This kid had chops on the skins; he stayed in beat most of the time for the three songs he sat in on.  Levi’s proud parents danced and cheered him on from the front row and I could only help but wonder, “Is this real life?” Click Here To Read More….
