Dark Side of the Moon, Abbey Road

Time for the annual Yacht Rock Revue Dark Side of the Moon show at the Variety Playhouse, this year paired with the Beatles Abbey Road.  This show is fun and we always have a great crowd (just under a thousand people in the audience).

Everything went well!  We've played it enough times that there's not usually any playing problems.  The DVD that plays Gone with the Wind was a little shaky (we have a click track lined up with it), but the backup disc was good.  Stoner myth complete!  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Side_of_the_Rainbow)

Abbey Road also came off without a hitch.  As with all the Beatles show, we utilized a horn section (this show was Rob Opitz, trumpet, and Tom Gibson, trombone).  Solid playing throughout.  My only gripe would be that I took two more terrible sax solos--one on Oh Darling! and the other on She Came in Through the Bathroom Window.  I can't seem to deliver anything, in spite of practicing ideas in B major all week.
