Unbelievable

Right now that seems to be the only word I can find to describe Saturday night.

Imagine stepping out onto a stage of a sold-out theater and having the entire place erupt into screaming applause.

That's exactly what happened... and how it continued for the next 3 hours as well.

I don't even have words to describe how incredible Saturday night was... except to say it was everything I hoped it would be - plus 10x more.

This picture is from later on in the show when the crowd could no longer contain themselves to their seats and decided to create an impromptu dance floor directly in front of the stage. This is the only available photo I have of the concert at this time. Better pics are coming from the newspaper photographer in a few days.

Our show was also videotaped, so I should have footage to share in a few weeks as well - and hopefully you'll be able to witness what I seem incapable of describing.

Now... time to start thinking about stepping down from cloud 9 and facing the real world again.

*sigh*

Now you have to do what every cutting edge band does--start working on the follow-up cd. The work is never done, man!

Perhaps you should change the name of your blog to "View from Cloud 9". We really did want to be there, it sounds like so much fun, dang we missed it.

The main thing is the quality of your recording. I played two songs, and my friend said, "Will you order one for me".

Travis R said...

Congratulations, Jeff! I'm glad it went well, and I wish I could've been there.

I'm glad it was everything you wanted it to be. If Jagger and Springsteen can still tour, so can you!

I must pause for a moment before my congratulations to remind you that I TOLD YOU SO. I knew it would be awesome.

Anyway, I'm so glad it was an excellent time. And hey, all the fun of being in a band without the dubious lodging and crushing poverty! There's something to be said for getting older.

Congratulations on a smashing success!

You are living the dream!

I'm so happy the concert went beyond what you could've hoped for. Who in life gets to do this? Not many people.

Waiting impatiently for the video!
