Blowdown I: "Really Sucks"

As you all recall, I'm sure, we held the first ever Blowdown at the Encore Dinner Theater (now the Tajine Alami restaurant) in Manitou Springs. Packed house. I was amazed at the turnout for a bunch of harp players. I remember sweating bullets when the PA crashed after the first couple of tunes. I think we had everything, including the stage lights, plugged into one electrical outlet. Once we reconfigured plugs and killed the stage lights, smooth sailing. K. did a nice writeup in the Indy. Best line: "It must really suck to be a harp player."

I'll have to dig up some recordings I made that night and post them.
