Asian Fête (05/19/18): *see set list

We had a great time at the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Celebration, just avoiding the actual rain, enjoying good company, and playing our set.

Many thanks to Jonathan and Marie, the former assisting with sound mixing and stage setup/teardown and the latter serving as videographer. Because of the weather, the crowd was “selective”, but we enjoyed ourselves, and the festival staff and overall atmosphere were very friendly and supportive. Thanks to Melody Wong for running the show with good cheer and gusto.

We also met regionally-local singer-songwriter Every Heard, who went on just before us and sang excellent original material, enchanting these two, very well-behaved concertgoers. And thanks for dancing during our set! Andy Toy joined us for “Black Magic Woman”, and played solo after us.
