I just wanted to thank you for having Rita in Golden. We had such a great time performing for the people and judging by their……….. reaction they did as well. Everyone involved in the production from the sound crew and all the volunteers were incredible. I know Rita is really looking forward to coming back.
I have to tell you that when we drove up to the civic centre my jaw dropped.
It’s been four years since I was last there with Jane Bunnett and we liked the building. It was looking a little old but it had a great vibe to it. Wow, what a shock it was to see it today. The outside looks fantastic and in regards to the inside, you hit it out of the ball park.
I have to say I was a little skeptical when you first told me about the plans for the entire building as I was a big fan of the interior as it had this kinda cool funky feeling to it as well good sound qualities.
As you know I have traveled around the world with many different groups.
I have seen a great many venues of all sizes and shapes. I’ve seen many of the older venues get a face lift and in a lot of cases they didn’t get it right,
So my question to you is, how did you manage to make the inside so beautiful with a great feeling of warmth and retain that ultra cool vibe, and improve the sound to what I would term as GREAT.
This was a very well thought out project, besides pleasing to the eye to say the least, we had an easy load in, the green room was comfortable,the sound check was smooth and the show was, from our stand point, was flawless from all aspects and a ton of fun.
Congratulations to you and everyone that was involved in this project and you can be sure that I will be spreading the word to every musician I know that this is a great place to perform
Keep up the great work
