After being uninvited to play a Battle of the Bands, we had one August gig: the Mohegan Sun Arena. I’m still waiting for the “official” pics/ video from the venue but below are my pics from my perspective. I also kept a timeline on Twitter via the “#CTSunGig” hashtag.

The Mohegan Sun Arena Play-By-Play:
Prior to leaving my gear was packed: 2 acoustic guitars, an extension chord, DigiTech pedal board, Fishman acoustic amp, electric guitar (for anthem), Marshall gig bag & sitting stool.
Arriving 2 hours before game time.
A look at the passes and tickets for the event.
An assumedly sick joke. We walked out on to the court to see 2 vocal microphones???
Rich sound checking at center court.
I assume this is the backstage area for bands (KISS played the following night).
The small area next to the stands where we stashed our gear waiting to go on.
I’m hopeful this is how everyone reacted to the performances…
