Back in the spring Jamie and I had been discussing the need to get some of
the local artists / musicians together so we could meet and perhaps
collaborate for future venues or special occasions, and, above all, just
to have some fun! One thing led to another, and suddenly "Jam In The Park"
is reality! It was fun for everyone, and even though there were some
technical difficulties, and an awfully strong wind, everyone had a good
time, and performers had a chance to show off a little.
There were lots of people taking pictures, and so did we. Here are some Gena and I took from the video, which will be on youtube pending everyone's permission (which could take a while hehe) So if you missed the show, or forgot ( haha) then this page will give you a peek!
everyone filled up at the concession, we were ready to jam (We can't count
playing by myself as jamming...right?). So here's the crew on stage:
Jamie: "Is this mic on? Test test.."
I know you can't see it in a picture, but the wind kept blowing the pages across our books, and here I thought I was smart bringing a clothes peg?
Should've brought 2, one for
the top, the other for the bottom! It did calm down some as
the evening progressed.

didn't have time to play "The Moonlight Sonata" because
A) His keyboard suddenly got a mind of it's own and started embellishing the string section, and
B) It wasn't dark enough for a moon yet!
In any case the bugs were ironed out, and we all learned a bit about hooking mixers to other mixers and other things unpredictably getting hooked to those while we're off getting a coffee etc.
>>>Doby was his usual encouraging self and did a funny little ditty on the guitar that was quite entertaining for all. Thankyou Doby!
|The Fab 3! 1,2...er 3 yep, there I am! I should've tried to move in a little closer as I felt like an outer planet in the solar system over there. And we all know what happed to Pluto!|
| As the
sun set lower and lower into the Pacific, I added as a last song, the
anthem-to-be here, "Texada"
I don't remember if there was applause, maybe everyone had left..
If a singer sings in the forest, and nobody heard, did she even make a sound?
Cheers all, and thankyou all for coming!
