whoops… guess I posted it twice since the first time my computer decided to freeze up… sorry for the duplicate.


#3

Not a problem. I deleted that other thread :happy:

Now if they would just put out the event schedule for the other F&W fest Rich would be a happy camper. Pam has told me I need to book the Party of the Senses to make her trip complete. Oh the pressure.:laugh:


#5

NO MORE MICKEY THOMAS’ STARSHIP!!!

ENOUGH ALREADY!!!

How about booking the REAL Jefferson Starship for once?!?!?!?!

On the other hand, you’ll never hear me complain about Air Supply because I love those guys. Their music’s OK, but it has more to do with the many times I’ve worked with them.
Class act, class organization, good people.

Smashmouth? That’s kind of provocative. Night Ranger again, but they’re OK.
Gin Blossoms, sure.
Let’s see what else they come up with.

LOVE Smash Mouth! Their songs are so upbeat and fun. In fact, trying to talk dh into a long weekend when they are there, but probably won’t happen seeing we are going in September, but who knows, it doesn’t hurt to try!!!


#7

Oh my the only ones I know in that line up are the Pointer Sisters, and I thought they’d retired long ago!:laugh:

I recognize the song, because it’s from the Monkees!!!

Beth, what I don’t like logistically about Eat To The Beat is that the sets are only about 30 minutes long, which means that the performers are only just getting into their groove halfway through every set instead of playing for an hour and really getting going.
I almost think two 60 minute sets is better than three 30 minute sets.

This has nothing at all to do with any individual performer, it’s just a fact of life.
It takes a certain amount of time for everything to gel when going from a dead stop. But once you’ve got your momentum built up, it’s better to let it wind down naturally instead of cutting it of abruptly.

Bram Tchaikovsky did it in 1979 as well.
And Walking On The Sun is a rip off of The Doors’ Soul Kitchen.
