The pic i posted is my crack merchandise team led by my Cooper, with Eli and Harry had a great merch table set up with the travel luggage displaying our Album, t shirts, leather products and download cards, as well as, taking tickets from all the Concert guests.
The evening set up, for our first show at Piper’s Lagoon in Nanaimo, as rather cumbersome with a set up outside which quickly moved inside as the rain started falling. Albert, Paul, the host, and my sons and husband helped with the move.
Jason, Albert and I were very jazzed to have Marty Howe join us and kill it on chromatic harmonica and flute for our 2 sets. Marty had never played with us before and we just all locked in and shared our music. It was a wonderful night of jazzy gypsy soul swing with stand up/electric bass/back up vocal stylings by Albert Klassen, Jason Overy on drum kit, myself on electric guitar and lead vocals and Marty in for the night.
I was very glad to have my Greg, Reed and Cooper out for the show, as well as, dear friends Lou, Alex, Kavita and Maya out from Toronto.
What a great night to kick off our Crazy Beautiful Tour in honour of our album release.
Thanks again to Paul and Paige for the relaxed, open set up for our show, warm beds and hot breakfest and coffee in the morning.
