After taking a break in May, we’re continuing our rehearsals for the tour - now moved to a studio in Seattle, where our first shows will be at the Moore Theater.
The mood is very good, and we’ve got some surprising music to add to the already long list of pieces we can do at our shows.
On Sunday night, after a week of rehearsing, there will be a run through show for friends & family, as we usually do when starting a tour leg.
But through the week, it’s a lot or running the songs, making changes, tweaking our sounds, recording and playbacks, and, with the more difficult material, just trying to get it right.
Okay, time to pack up the gear and riser, to move to the Moore Theater for our full dress run through.
Hmm.. in the tour book I recognize a lot of shots I took of the band. So I guess this is my picture of the guys looking at the picture I took of them looking at … Wonder if this picture will make it to the next tour book!
And here’s a picture of the setlist
The show went very well - considering that it was the first, and much new material, we’re very pleased. Not sure the others can go this long, with intermission it seemed about 3 hours 15 minutes, I’m guessing.
As for the friends & family in the audience, there were lots of them!
Well, we’re underway now! The music is challenging, and hopefully we’ll be giving the audiences an experience they’ll find memorable.
This update was pretty lengthy - they’ll be more reasonable from here on.
Coming soon, the road diary from our first public shows, here in Seattle.
Oops.. almost left out one of the most important pictures! Aftershow we managed to round up some of the Campers who’d attended, for a quick picture. There were more, but with a very crowded lobby it wasn’t easy to get the word out.
