We (The Kelly Rae Band
) just finished up another weekend at The Ranch
in Anaheim. Friday was OK but Saturday night was off the chain!
Here's our lovely Kelly putting on the show.
I'm not sure who this guy thinks he is.
Art and Daniel are pointing something out.
This is Daniel's rig. Quite a bit of stuff for a fiddle/mando player.
Art plays so loud that he brings his smallest amp to this gig and the sound guy, that's Mark in the background, still puts a shield in front of it. I think that's 15 watts of pure Fender power.
It's a good thing Art doesn't use any of the backline there. The available amps are two Fender Twin Reverbs, a Matchless and a Vox.
I think Mario forgot to eat before the gig. The Yamaha drum set is part of the backline too.
There are a couple of bass amps available, this SVT rig that you've seen before, and a GK 800RB along with both GK 115RBH and Neo 412RBH cabinets.
Yes, there is a keyboard available too, along with a Roland amp, but Jeff brings his own keyboards and runs direct.
This is the owner, Andrew, and I in the green room after the 1st set on Saturday night. Andrew has started singing the first song with the band. He's getting better every time.
And for Mr. modulusman, who likes high-end PA systems, here is some of the PA gear in the club, all Meyer stuff. There is an array like this hung on either side of the stage, six dual 12" with a dual 15" cab on top. The subs are under the stage and front fills are on the, um, front of the stage.
These are the floor wedges.
This is the monitor room just off of stage right.
And here is the band's private restroom. Well, the men's room anyway. Since Kelly is the only female she gets her own. We call it her "office".
This is Autumn. She celebrated her birthday with friends tonight. A good time was had by all.
And this is Mary enjoying some two-stepping around the dance floor with a friend.
I hope your weekends gigs were as much fun as mine. Break a leg!
Thank you for your indulgence,
