Sesame Street Live @ MACC

Posted by delta on 29th June 2008

We set this one up on the 26th, I ran spot for all the shows (27th-29th), and we finished striking it about an hour ago… 

I have to mention something funny that happened during the first day of shows that was really funny. The other spot and myself are not well versed in the characters. The guy calling spots would call the characters by name. Can you imagine where this would lead? Well, it did!

Perry and I were yelling back and forth:

“Which one?”

“The blue one!”

And it just went on from there…

Pretty comical…

Slack Key Festival @ MACC

Posted by delta on 22nd June 2008

I ran the stage for this one again.  I have no idea what it was, but this year was great!  Absolutely the smoothest multi-band-show I have ever done.  All the musicians were great, both on and off the stage… 

I’ve gotta tell ya, Makana is a changed man.  He’s totally a changed person – really nice guy now!  Not only that, but he sang for this show and it turns out he’s got this incredible voice!  I had no idea what has clicked with him, but he’s got it going on now – really got it going on!

I had a great time doing this show!

This was a last minute gig for me.  Amy got sick and they needed a stage manager really quick – I jumped in, and I’m really glad I did cause I love this stuff! Great show!

Maui Film Festival @ MACC

Posted by delta on 16th June 2008

This one ran from the 10th to the 15th – I ran the McCoy…

I really don’t have much to say – I mean, I have a lot to say, but nothing positive, so I’m gonna leave it there…
