Last Week’s Chamber of Commerce Gala

JRQ at the Annual Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce Gala, 3-17-2017.

Last Friday, we played for “Up, Up, and Away!” the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Gala at Little America.

I turned on my recorder and let it run to capture some live music samples from our gig.  It was a great night and there were some great moments.  I love this combination of players and instruments.  For last week’s gig, we had Shawn Mickelson on trumpet and flugelhorn, Peter Queal on guitar and vocals, Chris Allen on vibraphone, Dennis Griffing on bass, and Ward Durrett on drums backing me up on vocals.

We started off with an hour of music for the cocktail hour then played a couple of sets after dinner.  Here are several tunes that I uploaded from the after-dinner music.

We also captured some video accompanied by audio feeds off of the board which I’ll post when I get them back.  Hopefully, that will give you a better sound quality and you will be able to see us playing as well, but I hope this gives you an idea of what this show was like.
