This is Thomas our driver, CD salesman, Q & A Moderator and all-around great guy.

This is a monitor in the hallway just off stage which shows what is happening on stage.

The pipes… The interesting thing about the sound of the organ, beside how big and full it could be, was the clarity. No matter how dissonant the harmony Don would play you could hear all the tones. Nothing was lost, even if the notes were only one half step apart. I’m not sure why this would be the case but it was awesome to experience.

Two examples of backstage signage to keep that thread going.

Today we drive in a van to our next performance which is tonight.
