The final Gala Event



It's a sad day. There will be no more Gala Events. Tonight's Gala Event at The Riveria in Chicago was the last of the special instrumental shows.

Chicago got special treats in the form of a performance of "Funky Boss" and "High Plains Drifter."

Like the Detroit Gala Event, the Chicago Gala Event was filmed for a possible dvd.

    Even though they made a lot of mistakes, it was a fantastic show. My friend who was dressed to impress got interviewed on camera about his outfit.

    Someone who filmed the entire Detroit Gala Event supplied the setlist to me. Both the Chicago and Detroit Gala Events had the exact same setlist for filming purposes. Chicago, however, got a few extra gems.

    I got a picture after the show with the 'Robot Guy". The poor thing looked so hot I hated to ask him to don his suit again, but I did, and he did!!!

    I'm glad you all are enjoying our videos. I have posted a few more.
