I was so excited that Steve brought his tour to Baton Rouge - I have traveled all over the country to hear him so this was a real treat. The venue, the Varsity, is small and intimate so there was no bad seat in the house!! And I was also amazed at how controlled the sound was - I was expecting it to be way too loud for the venue but the sound man did a really good job (it was still loud but not as loud as many of his concerts). I was also amazed that Steve still found room to move around, spin, dance, and do his thing in the limited space he had. He played amazingly well, as always - as did the whole band. Everyone gets to shine - and I highly recommend getting Dave's acoustic CD, on sale at the concert. And thanks for playing several of my favs!
I always like to participate in the EVO
experience and this time it was EXCEPTIONAL
. Some people who didn't do EVO asked me, while we were in line to get back in for the concert, if it was worth the money. I told them to never pass up that opportunity. We had plenty of time with Steve, even with his son, Fire, trying to keep him on schedule - which he did. Great questions from the audience, and Steve, I think it's time to write a book (get a ghost writer so you can just keep doing what you need to music wise)
. Your response to one question I hope everyone noted - You mentioned that you live within your means - a lot of people need to hear that. And to my question about how you mentally and physically do this 6 nights a week hit home for anybody's career. And I still say you are a marketing genius and we LOVE that you think of new stuff for us to have - it's like Apple, give the clients what they want and they will buy it. Thanks for adding some ladies Tees - but don't forget - many of us are not little junior sizes!! Then the soundcheck was so cool as the band worked on a new song and tried to find the groove - watching them work together was just the best! And, as always, I like to not having to battle the crowd to get to the front so getting to get in the venue before everyone else is always a treat. Thanks for continuing to provide the EVO experience for us!
Oh, and thanks for letting us take photos - that was really fun. If someone would tell me how to upload a photo s here I would post some. Right now you can see them on my facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/wattam/media_s ... 344&type=1
All in all, GREAT show, great band, fun times. I want to know about the concert date for playing with the Colorado Symphony - I think that's another road trip in the making for us!!
