After getting to bed at 3 am last night, it felt great to be able to sleep in until 11 am! Once I finally got up, I had to hustle, because I really wanted to see…………….
12 pm – The Orchestra [former members of Electric Light Orchestra (ELO)] Storytellers segment in the Theater
I made sure I went to the Roger Dean gallery, and spoke to Roger for at least 30 minutes. Roger said yes, he would be happy to work with my band and do an album cover!
Speaking of artwork, I had a great conversation with Rudie Baldwin from Carl Palmer Artwork. Carl’s art is truly amazing. He plays with drumsticks that have LED’s embedded in them, and the movements are captured on film. Very cool.
In the afternoon, Brook Hansen and Tom Tutino of the Prog Rock Orchestra performed on the karaoke stage doing some acoustic piano and guitar stuff – Tim Marshall of the Prog Rock Orchestra joined in for a few tunes!
7:30 pm – Sound of Contact – Show #2 on the Black & White Stage
