Tessa's Take!

It's Friday! Last night I had the opportunity to watch rockstars in the making! I caught the gReefers show at Bring a Friend Stay Awhile. What a show! The four fab musicians making up the band are Max Kleene on guitar and vocals, Ictus Belford on bass, Thunder Lexington on drums and Allister Westland on lead guitar. These guys relay stream, that means they are all in different places, two in Canada and two in the US, and their streams are sent through the channels till the four streams are broadcast as one. The really incredible thing is that the musician with the first stream can't hear anyone else and each musician can only hear the person behind them on the stream. What the audience hears is all the musicians at the same time, how they keep it all in sync is just baffling. These guys get together and practice, add songs as often as they can and do their best to entertain. Last nights show was off the charts awesome! The crowd was so excited, the band members were in total Rockstar form, leading off with a couple Floyd tunes and then slowing it down with their breathtaking rendition of Harvest Moon, before rocking out the night. The guys graciously took us well past the hour, and even then, fans were begging for more. The band won't play again til April 22nd so mark your calendars and catch the gReefers show, you won't be sorry. I'll see ya there! Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck
