We were lucky to get a fabulous day at the Ballard Locks, complete with a vintage car show on the side. Lisa took some pictures that I thought I would share with you. Kudos for Lisa and a tip of the hat as she also lends us her hubby Greg who does the bari sax honors.
The fronts are new and something that Suzy and I have been working on for a long time. Since they do not connect to the stand, the fellows in the front row can have the stands at different heights. and the box behind them is used to hold glasses cases, drinks, reeds, and the like. Shaz, the vocalist, was joined by her daughter for one of the numbers which was a real crowd pleaser.
I didn’t mic the whole band just using the mixer and PA provided by the Ballard Locks folks. I did add on a mic for the lead tenor sax too. I really need to find a sound guy to support this band.
What a nice way to end the year. And Shaz, if you’re reading this, I’ll get you for the boa thang! :o)
Lisa notes that the car pics were taken by her hubby Greg. So noted. :O)
