Actually, harbor front property in Dunkirk, New York, at their Thursday Music on the Pier series. As the first band, The Untouchables, played their amazing high-energy set of Blues Brothers-influenced songs, the question we asked ourselves: “How are we going to follow THAT?!?” Good or bad, depending on your perspective, follow it we did, and the crowd seemed to love the entire night. We had fun both watching and performing!
… Town of Niagara Veterans Memorial Park. Nasty weather was forecast, so the crowd wasn’t as big as it has been in the past. It rained just as opener The USA Band was finishing their set, which thinned the audience even more. Still, several hundred people braved the storm (which lasted for only 20 minutes or so) and stayed for our show. A couple of technical issues with the sound and electronics due to the rain were dealt with quickly by our Production Manager, Justin Sledz and sound system engineer Scott Nichols. Before our show was over everyone got to witness one of the most beautiful sunsets of the summer at one of the area’s finest outdoor music venues.
