Nothing big just one of Swedens most watched televisions shows !!! And if ya think thats annoying ? I think I watched a portion of that show ´cause I remember seeing the other acts ! And I dont even like them !

Wonder what song he did ?

Im crossing my fingers AND toes !

What´s more annoying is that this show that he was on is only a train ride away ! It is a Bingo show and they shoot it in Gothenburg !

Here I am wishing, hoping and praying that he should come to Gothenburg and not Stockholm and looksy looksy ! He WAS IN GOTHENBURG !!!! I got my wish granted before I even knew I wished for it. Haha ! Talk about psychic abilities.........

Hi everyone!

I know this goes way back, but I hadn't seen it until now

and thought maybe the rest of you would like to read it.

Alan Chang is an extremely talented musician. I hope

he continues working with Michael.

Take care all,

Jo

I have a great story to tell about Alan Chang (Michael Buble’s piano player/music director). Sorry if this is too long. My husband and I are BIG Michael Buble fans. I’m more of a fan than he is. We live about 15 minutes from where Alan grew up (city disclosed). Hubby keeps a copy of every one of MB’s albums where he works at a local community college. One day he was playing one of MB’s albums and the jazz band director of the college comes in to ask for something. He sees several MB CD covers on my husbands desk and he’s playing one of them. The director comments “Oh, you’re a fan.” My husband says yes. The director says under his breath “I used to work with Alan Chang.” Grumble grumble grumble. Not a little jealous are we. I’m thinking when was the last time the jazz director played Madison Square Garden twice? I love this story every time we tell it. Local boy does good. Way to go Alan, and way to go Michael for hiring him. :lol:

Again I say, this goes back, but I think it's very interesting.

So often I've felt like commenting on the wonderful backup to

Michael's songs that Alan Chang does. I'm so glad that they're

working together--and I hope it will continue. I can't imagine

anyone else doing as well.

Take care all.

Jo

RAFLEE, thanks for sharing that with us! I know this sounds

like too much of a coincidence, but I just did a post about

ALAN CHANG on the "That's Life" forum. Then, when I went back

to the other forums, I saw your post. As I said there, I think

that he is a great musician and I've always loved the songs

that he and Michael do together. I can't imagine anyone else

doing as well. I hope they stay together.

Take care,

Jo

Your very welcome Jo. I wanted to post this a couple of years ago but was too shy. Evidently I'm not now. My husband and I would love to meet Alan. I'm sure his parents still live in the house he grew up in. Went to Michael's Crazy Love Tour at the Oracle Arena in Oakland in April. Had great seats, row 18 on the floor. Mr. Buble and Alan were phenomenal as always, the concert was too short. We love old standards. I'm exactly Michael's mom's age, but who cares. He and Alan are too cute! Take care. Raflee

Raflee,

I was at that Oakland show as well. I agree, it was so great but too short.

I'm in a video outside the Oracle when Michael came out to say hi to everyone and

sign.

I too have a story about Alan whom I think is such a bright musician and arranger

of music for Michael.

I was in Vegas for one of MB's shows and my hubby and I were walking around the casino

and went past a restaurant. There sitting outside on a bench was Alan. I saw this young

man sitting there but I was talking with my hubby and as we pasted I took a double-take. It

was Alan. I stopped a while up the walkway and told my hubby I'm sure thats Alan, he looked

back and stated, "It is him". Go talk to him. I got nervous but then, calmed down went back

and we talked for about 10 mins. He is so easy to talk to just like all the band guys and it

goes without saying Michael too. I hail right near his hometown, so we talked about home and

family and music and his band too. He was very gracious and took a picture with me. He also

signed one of mine that I had with his picture and Michael's together.

I luckily also got to see Michael before the show and just briefly talked with him, he needed to

get to rehearsal but he looked great after just getting better from a bad cold he had.

I had written something about the show, and I got a message from Alan's mom that was so

sweet and gracious of her. Telling me she appreciated the things I said about Alan.

These are the kinds of things going to an MB show that I treasure. Not just meeting and talking

with Michael a bit, but the guys in the band are great too and it's so wonderful that any of them

offer to even spend a little time with you.

I never had more fun at shows and I've seen many entertainers, but Michael's shows are the very

best. Just to be able to meet and entertainer is such a plus if you go to a show. It just doesn't

often happen. I will remember those times always.

For any future shows I see I will make more memories with the wonderful people I've met here on

this board and away from it. Some are fans who go to his shows but just aren't members of the

boards. We've become good friends and keep in contact always. We plan to go to shows together

whenever we can all make it. This part of my life is always like, something to look forward to.

There will be a time when I cannot go anymore so I'm enjoying it while I can. Who knows I maybe

even able to see Michael after all his fame has somewhat deminished, and in his older years, he may

go back to performing the the smaller venues again. I will be older too, but I will get there!
