The concert was wonderful. As opening night for a world tour, one could expect glitches and there were same. Almost all of it was new to me, and it was all really good. I was particularly impressed by the stage lighting, which used some very modern technology (multicoloured LEDs) in a huge collapsible webbing for some very interesting effects.
David Kuckhermann opened – he has THREE hang drums, which is like have three Mona Lisas, the damned things are so rare. It wasn’t even an instrument prior to 2000. I learned of it in 2003 and have wanted one ever since, so I was drooling from a great height…. Hm, he has on line lessons, including for cajon, an instrument that’s already in the house…. nice.
The Orpheum is a lovely venue.
