It was our first time going on stage since the worldwide pandemic. The last time we did, it was colder for us outside but it was a warmer sentiment.
With summer having rolled around and the COVID-19 restrictions loosening up, we were able to take one of our scheduled shows that we had to delay, and turn it into an experience we haven’t hosted before.
As a drive-in show, it brought interesting challenges. We may be wrong about this, but it certainly felt like it was the hottest day of the year so far. Perhaps we were too focused on preparing our music and equipment to ensure we gave the best performance we could, but we all completely forgot to bring a single container of sunscreen.
With our entire set underneath the sun, powering through that heat was challenging. Cory was able to get a fan blowing wind at him, but that did not prevent him or the rest of the band from suffering sunburns in interesting spots. Cory had a nose as red as Rudolf while Jeff had his leg cooked, as the sun hit an open spot exposed by ripped jeans. It’s not often we get battle scars from playing a show!
Minor obstacles aside, the show was a huge success and we got to befriend the guys from The Rivertown Saints, meet Wendy Boomer from Y101, gain some new fans and help raise almost $10k for the Robbie Dean Foundation.
We had a blast and it was a privilege to have been able to be part of a drive in show. We are looking forward to seeing where this takes us!
