October 7th has been significant in my life for the past few months for two reasons.
1. It is my daughters birthday and she is now 8 years old. She is incredibly special.
2. Production rehearsals begin for the Lead Me On Tour
I would post pictures of my daughters birthday party but you aren't here to see that. However, I have posted some pictures below production rehearsals. Today is the load in process for the audio, lighting, and staging. We have the day to get things set up and looking right and then tomorrow the band will return and we will start production runs. For those of you that don't know how this process works, let me explain.
Production rehearsals help the tour iron out production issues, program lighting and audio consoles. We take three or four days to put the set up and make sure it works as planned and it also gives us a chance to run the show from top to bottom tweaking things here and there. A lot of work goes into getting a tour out on the road and we have a great crew that works behinds the scenes to get this done. Be sure to thank them when you see them on the road the next couple of months. Without them there is no tour.
