Melissa Manchester wows ’em! at the Railhead in Boulder Station

February 28, 2012 3:00 AM by Mark Mayer

Like Tony Bennett playing the Palms, it was a curious booking to have Melissa Manchester at Boulder Station. After all, the Railhead showroom is known more for country artists and retro acts. Well, Melissa knocked it out of the park for 90 minutes.

The show had incredible energy for a musical genius who walked away from the business for some 20 years to be a mom to her kids. Now she’s back and better than ever. The show is a trip down memory lane and proof good music is still being made without having a rap sheet. Manchester also stuck around after the show to sign autographs and take photos with her fans. Not many artists do that these days.
