WOW.. I just can't speak highly enough on that concert. It wasn't big and flashy like back in the day, but what was good about it was just how incredible the audio was.

I seen them at a casino here in Oregon which has their own venue. A few hours after the concert I went back into the room, all of Tesla's gear was gone, but I did notice that the PA was still there. I'm guessing that this stays put. Having said that, I can assume that the venue was also designed to have great acoustics. Not like your large arenas that should like crap. I'm also going to assume that they have already had audio engineers in there setting up the pa system to sound at its peak.

Regardless, they sounded tight, everything was clear, CD clear... Amazing. It was good crowd as well. Very civilized but then that’s what you get when most the head bangers are now in their 40’s :D

As mentioned, a few hours after the concert I was poking around. Wanted to see what was back stage. Looked down a hall and what do my eyes ponder on? Frank Hannon! I didn't want to be inappropriate, but, I couldn't just miss this chance, so I seized the opportunity and went into the dressing room where he was talking biz with what looked like some roadies.

I just quickly shook his hand gave him some props and walked away.
