OK, well that was totally fine. I shot more than 300 pics. Got a lot to review and triage. Gonna post some before I crash. Some of you know the drill by now. Because of DayGigIstan, I can no longer stay up way late doing my blog updates after the shows. So, the bulk of this will have to wait 'til after I get off work and then go hang with my Ma for a while at the nursing home.
"America's Got Talent" 2010 winner, our friend and Santa Fe alum Michael Grimm.
Michael, we all love you and are all so thrilled for your success. Keep your True North, l'il bro'. And, remember, we are always here for you.
Of course, there's always something else goin' down. Below, Brian Monroney (Tom Jones show) sat in and ripped up a ride on "System of Survival." Wow, man...
In a word: slammin'...
Stay tuned for more. All I got time for at the moment.
TUESDAY EVENING UPDATE
I have so many shots, my head is spinning. Let the random photo essay begin...
Above, the "Hat City Horns," LOL. Backstory: Santa Fe and The Fat City Horns have a long-time hardcore fan, Fred, whom I first met 5 years ago at the Palace Station gigs. Great cat. We used to share a table (he once, as he was leaving early, said "I have a rule. I have to be in bed by 11 -- or I have to go home.")
He moved to central America several years ago. So, last night he shows up with a huge stash of Panama hats and hands them out to everyone in the band.
Yeah, man, ya just had to be there...
Also, backstage prior to the show, the baddest sound cat in the world (former keyboardist and Santa Fe alum), Sonny Maupin. He gets it right EVERY night.
Props also once again to Greg Sinclair for his tireless pro bono light board work. I coudn't get any shots worth a flip without you, Greg.
