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.
