The debut show of the Glass City Opry was a success!
Over 190 people came out to enjoy the show and we are pleased
that you made the trip out to hear some great bluegrass music on a Monday evening!
As we asked from on stage... we hope you not only tell a friend about the show,
but that you bring five or six more! You can help us make the Glass City Opry
a continuing success, month after month! Our next show is going to be
just as much fun and enjoyable!
We had a few little bugs to smooth out, but all in all, everything ran so smoothly
that we were so pleased! We hope that those of you who had the opportunity
to experience the pink noise generator at the sound check before the show can
appreciate just how loud that thing can be!
It's only got to be run once, and now the computer sound equipment
is all ready to "know" how to program the sound in the theatre!
We had hoped to run that before everyone showed up, but we can see,
the crowd was so eager to get there, we had folks showing up as early as 4:30
for the show! We hope you found the sound check to be an interesting part of the show!
We were so pleased at the outcome and the whole evening's experience!
Many many thanks to all the people that
helped to make the evening magical!
