Wellington, New Zealand, April 13, 2010
Concert at Wellington Town Hall, Wellington, New Zealand, April 14 2010
Holy Mackerel! What a Fun Show! I gotta say I honestly didn't know what to expect from New Zealanders, but man you folks are great! We all blew in pretty late last night, and hit the hay pretty hard. Got up this morning and whizzed over to the venue without any time to really check anything out. Soundchecked, ironed my shirt, (yes I am a capable domesticated husband), and munched on veggie sticks before the show. Then coming out on to the stage, I knew it was going to be special. First of all the natural acoustics of the hall are GREAT! then of course our own "MIx Master" Howard Heckers behind the board, brought the sound to new heights. Having him with us these past six years has been a real blessing. And to top it all off, you folks here in Wellington! your energy was spectacular! and I applaud you for it! I gotta admit I was a little nervous about your response after Roger told you I was from Canada. But I certainly felt the love throughout the show. I can honestly say I probably had as much (if not more) fun up there as you all did in the house.
Well, again it's another late night with an early morning. Off to Auckland tomorrow.
