A Pat on the Back

A personal pat on the back here (I've got long arms--ask anyone)... The Alex Finazzo video "I've Waited as Long as I Can" we posted yesterday is the very first music performance Kathie and I ever made. It was taken at the Coffee Gallery Backstage in Altadena, CA where we had gone to see one of our favorite local bands, the Salty Suites. 

We only had one camera then and didn't really know what we were doing. It sat in my computer for over eight months until we (by we I mean Scott Starbuck) got the editing skills to turn a bland shoot that did not do justice to the performance into something nice. 

Now we have four video cameras, sound recording equipment, microphones, professional editing software, backup batteries and accessories, and skills that get better every day. We have about thirty videos up and another 75 or so in the can waiting for editing. 

Our YouTube channel keeps getting better, the fan base of our TheMusicator Facebook page is growing, our dotcom site is coming along nicely, and we now have a TheMusicator blog. We have come a long way on our mission to promote local, live music. Not bad for a small team of retired old farts!

Oh yeah, and we've made a lot of good friends in the process... Thank you all!!!!!
