You couldn’t help but be on tv if you were at Infinity Music Hall in Norfolk Friday.
There were cameras taping all kinds of things everywhere. Wilson Phillips, the singing trio made up of Wendy and Carnie Wilson, daughters of Beach Boy Brian Wilson, and Chynna Phillips, daughter of Mama’s and Papa’s duo John and Michelle Phillips, were the feature of another CTPV/ Infinity Hall Live taped performance that will be shown nationally in mid-June.
And if that was not enough tv attention, a sold-out crowd, that was more than enthusiastic about signing waivers, were also being filmed by a whole separate crew as part of the Wilson Phillips reality show “Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On.”
And then there was more. At the end of the concert, audience members were invited to “hold on” and stay another hour while a music video was shot featuring the trio’s rendition of the Beach Boys hit, “Good Vibrations,” one of the tracks on the group‘s new album “Dedicated.”
“This is freakin’ unbelievable,” said Jasmine Murray, who couldn’t wait to be filmed. “I was 11 when Wilson Phillips had its first hit and remember standing on my bed and using my hairbrush as a microphone and singing along with them,” said the Torrington resident. “This is so exciting!”
Some say the measure of a good concert is how many people get up and dance. Based on the participation and excitement over the tv cameras, the concert was great. “We didn’t even know each other before this,” said dancing/singing gal pal foursome, Jamie Thomas of New Britain with her mother, Julie Silvestri of Avon, and Cynthia Russo of Portland and Melissa Pressmar of Loitchfield, who were at the bar following the show. “We met dancing in the aisle.” The night was extra special for Thomas who was celebrating her birthday. When Carnie Wilson was advised, she stopped the show to sing “Happy Birthday” to Thomas.
