Let me sum this up for you in pictures.
The day before the album was released, Jillian Hicks (fiddle, banjo, vocals) came down to practice and hang out. Between late night music, early morning saunas, mid-afternoon hard boiled eggs fests, and Christmas light decorating extravaganzas, we had an unbelievable time. Here she is when we went to get money for the show at the Chase bank, where I told her she blended right in.
We got over to the warehouse and started setting up chairs, stage, lights, etc.
Randy Lyttle ran sound and did an amazing job. Sound check happened in all of 5 minutes, and then we did a fast change while people took their seats.
Damion and Brent from Mana Kintorso did a nice job opening up the night. Really good writers.
We loved playing this show! The place was packed, and the crowd was fantastic.
Post show found us loopy and me continuing to be made fun of for purchasing corn relish as part of our green room snacks.
Ben Chandler took great video footage of the night that we'll post here soon. In the mean time, here is his nose.
Sara Watts and Kari McDonald ran a top-notch merch table. And they looked darn good doing it!
The end of the night wound down slowly. We had a slumber party that resulted in eating about 40 slices of pizza and killing the rest of the Bell's beer before hitting the hay.
Thank you for coming out! If you couldn't make it, we hope to see you next time!
