OK, so last night I played in the back up orchestra for Il Divo, for an outdoor concert here in Phoenix. The 4 singers were ok, their voices were quite good. But the main event for me was meeting and chatting with Gary Wallis. This guy is the Pink Floyd drummer/percussionist in the post-Waters era. He was also the Music Director for last night's show. Quite a nice and unassuming gentleman!

And wouldn't you know it... I didn't have a camera with me. Except for the crappy one on my cell phone. So I snapped a pic next to the guy. :D I will post it once I figure how to d'load it. (any advice?)

It was ok, I'm not much of a popsy style ("popera" as they call it) lover but I have to give it to them, the show was good, voices were good also. Best in the show though were the lead guitarist and of course Gary Wallis on drums.

It was a 'no-pain' experience, show up for a 2 hour rehearsal, go have dinner and a beer, come back and do the 80 minute show. Paid well too.

Yeah Terri, it was fun. And I figured out how to get the pic from my cell phone (thanks hobbes!!). Here it is, sorry for the cr**py quality, the person who took it was also shaking.
