On the other side of the spectrum, the camaraderie and respect from all of the band members have been making the occasional long bus rides, “set-ups and tear downs”, and down time quite enjoyable. The positive attitudes of all of the band members make for a very comfortable and professional environment.
After each concert, a few members of the band greet patrons and thank them for attending the performance. It is always a treat meeting audience members and chatting with them for a few minutes. Additionally, the sponsors have been so gracious and welcoming in each city. This was no exception in Nashville as Mr. Steve Rhodes made sure the house was full at the Collins Alumni Auditorium. The audience at tonight’s concert was absolutely fantastic, and this was very much appreciated by everyone in the band.
We are off to Cookeville, Tennessee tomorrow, and we are looking forward to performing at Tennessee Tech University!
