Barnstorm 13 was a huge success – the weather was not the best, but audience members and musicians had a wonderful time. Several people have commented that this was the best Barnstorm yet, and that this is THE music festival to play.
Thank you to everyone who made this event great, including of course the bands that made the magic happen. You all played scorching sets!
Special thanks to Dick Alta Vista for doing a great job as MC for the evening, and for the delicious Jamaican patties for the bands. You were fantastic!
Thanks again to Laker Beer’s generous sponsorship of suds for the bands. Thank you Brett Croft and Laker Beer!
Sound Output Audio Productions (SOAP) for the sound reinforcement and recording and front of house PA – thank you Mark Valcour, David Pratt, and Jay Kay.
Dave’s Drum Shop for the loaner drum kit – thank you.
Martin Sound for the lasers, smoke machine and DJ gear – thank you.
Thanks to Ken Tierney for your great audio ad – and great ear! Bravo!
Dwight Macpherson for the poster design and logo that went over and above – thank you.
This should be closer to the top, but I want to thank all of the volunteers – I couldn’t do it without you:
Thanks to Derek and Jennifer Bradshaw, who organized the raffle and worked the gate.
Special thanks to Kent ‘the man’ MacMillan for all the effort you put into the balcony extension, the “Le Bistro” walls and windows, and countless other things.
Thanks to Martha and Tom Walsh for the great chili and desserts for our performers’ hospitality area, for Martha’s stage direction and her work at the Merchandise booth – it’s always wonderful to have you with us.
Thanks to Dave Sarazin and Matthew Crosier from CKCU for spinning the tunes in the Chill Zone.
Lastly, I would like to thank my girlfriend Margaret for serving food, and for putting up with me for the last few weeks, as there were many long nights and early mornings that were spent working on the endless details that need to be attended to. Thank You Sweetie!
