Andrew Colyer on the YES Cruise to the Edge with the Prog Rock Orchestra – Day Two

2014 Cruise to the Edge, Day Two

Today was another exciting day!  There are too many activites onboard to list, so I’ll just share the ones that I participated in.

I performed on keys/vocals with the Prog Rock Orchestra!

Starting off the day, I was fortunate to have breakfast with Frank Wyatt (Happy the Man, Oblivion Sun) and his lovely wife, Mindy.

I also had the good fortune to work with Patrick Moraz, helping him and his crew with technical aspects of setting up his rig – and he used my keyboard stand!  (Apparently, there were not any other three- or four-tiered keyboard stands on the ship.)
