    Well another year and we are back for a corporate golfing event. This time we didn'tuse a stage because it was too small (we added another guitar player). We set up at the end of a large ballroom so there was plenty of room. I only bought one 12 in cab since I was using a DI. The room was so boomy that you couldn't differentiate the notes I was playing .. just a lot of bass sound. We did two sets and were well fed. The food is the same every year. This might be the last time there, it's being sold. Just so you guys can't bust on me, I didn't wear shorts, all black just like a professional musician. (but see guitar player) ;)

    Of course the food shot .. No bun for the burger, I'm on a diet.

    As I recall that room the sunlight that's coming in from stage left is the windows that open out to the golf course.
    Nice place.

    What's it take to get a gig at Pine Valley? :)
     
  13. Haha, that's hilarious - one stage shot during setup, and one shot of a really great looking meal! I should have known!

    No shot of the board, your amp, bass, the drummer, other guitarist, or anything else? How am I supposed to waste time at work like this?

    Good report nonetheless, made me smile.

  14. Uh oh, I just noticed it looks like *6* music stands on stage! You better not let the music stand police see this! They won't be happy. Throw in the pair of shorts, and you're only one man bun away from a severe talking too.

    :roflmao:

    You look great in black - all professional...

    The guitar player? Well, he's wearing just about the worst gig outfit outside of a speedo: cargo shorts, untucked shirt, and.. Tivas! Ugh. Lol
