Tonight we’ll be playing our first show of 2013. It’s also the first show we’ve played as a full band since… well, about 10 months ago. It’s the first show we’ve played where Alan gets to show off his fancy new wedding ring, where Kate and I have to have a babysitter… it’s kind of a big deal for us on a personal level.
It’s also the first night we’re using some new gear. Alan uses an iPad for a good deal of his synth voices and sampling. He used an Alesis iodock (i think) last year. He’s moved over to an Akai SynthStation 49. Tonight he’ll debut that. He’s also using a new flugelhorn.
