Festival of Trees Video (Part 1)

So, before you watch these, let me describe the set-up:

We were on a 12x14 stage, about 1/8 of which was being taken up by the huge bench thing you can see in the back right corner...why they wouldn't take it down, we don't know...

The stage was about as flimsy as a cardboard box, and my best guess is there was close to a ton of weight sitting on top of it. We were getting sea sick trying to read our music as it bounced up and down.

We adjusted the sound on the fly through the first few songs.

Only the vocals and acoustic guitar and keys were running through the system. Everything else (except for the drums and percussion) was amped. So, if the mix sounds bad, it's because it was.

Our set was cut short...didn't get to do the last three songs because we started 15 minutes late cause they didn't plan very weel for the transitions between bands.

But, we had a great time, and our attitudes were good throughout. It actually reminded us of our old church building...the stage was about the same size.

Anyway, we didn't get video of everything, and some of the video turned out bad (more because of us than our video guy), so I haven't included everything. Enjoy!

The sound on these videos is better than the ones from our place! BTW the first instrument I played was accordion!
