Seven guys can make a lotta noise
All those mouths to feed had its financial drawbacks, but it paid off in spades when we took the stage. The greatest part about being in a big band was that someone was ALWAYS having a great night, and if it wasn't YOU, you could feed off that member's energy. That, and an audience that gave back just as much as we put out, and you had a formula for night after night after night of rock 'em sock 'em reggae dance parties.
And party we did.
Our gear filled the ENTIRE storage bay of the 44 foot tour bus, we had the best soundmen in the biz and we cranked it as loud as the P.A. (and your ears) could handle. Each night ended with the entire scene soaked with sweat and exhausted...a workout to say the least.
