My friend Robert Conti has chops inside of chops inside of chops. He put on a dazzling and graciously personable clinic today.
LOL, I say "graciously personable" because for the first half of his presentation the house system kept irritatingly cutting in and out. They couldn't fix it for it for longest time. Now, wait a minute -- this is a huge music store with tons of state of the art sound reinforcement equipment inside the walls, and a permanent clinic/performance area located in the midst of the main area. That stuff should simply not happen.
Robert was ever-so-imperceptibly hacked off, but he just pushed through the Mickey Mouse and put on a totally engaging event.
Cat is one amazing musician.
