is beautiful. Mountains, rivers, and trees. So pristine.
The club, however, is funksville. It is downstairs (always
a challenge) and to get to the back of the stage you have
to go down these rickety wooden stairs and then over these
boards that have been laid down so you don't have
to drag your stuff on dirt (Pictures to follow).
During the day this was not so bad but at night, after the
performance, the area was very dark and dangerous. I'm
glad no one in our group got hurt. To top it off my amp
would not work. I turned on the Aguilar amp and it lit up
momentarily but then went dead. We checked the power cable
and fuse but nothing seemed to be wrong with them. I wish
I had brought extra fuses or a spare amp. Luckily the sound
guy, Ethan, had a back up Gallien Krueger bass amp that
someone left at the club. It worked out fine. Whew.
Our hotel was only four blocks from the club, which made
for an easy drive back to the rooms for some rest. We will
need it as we have eleven hours of driving to do tomorrow
to get to Hays, Kansas.
