July 27 & 28, 2012 – Oyster Ridge Music Festival, Kemmerer, WY
We love to play this festival and always have a blast. We did two 90 minute sets, one on Friday and the other on Saturday.
Before (Friday – it was hot and dry so the Gatorade was a necessity!):
OK, the B.O.D.s are taking a beating. I use them mostly on shuffles but we do one tune that’s 15 minutes long, pretty fast and goes from pp to fff. Rimshots are going to do some damage. And not to sound like a broken record but the sticks are showing very little signs of wear other than a little denting. Still no wood chips, splinters or cracks. Also, the finish on the sticks seemed to help me hold on to the sticks when the hands got sweaty. Haven’t dropped a stick all week actually.
