10.09.07: Chicago, HOB

This was the last show out of six in a row for Mute Math, which was a great relief for all the band and crew because we're simply getting tired; (we're well into the tour with only a month left to go). However, neither the band nor the crew played/worked like a bunch of apathetic slugs. Instead, the opposite was happening. I felt an energy that day, perhaps it was coming from the great city of Chicago and all the wonderful folk art hanging along the walls of the venue.

Wherever it was coming from, it translated that night into a beautiful exchange of energy and language between the band and audience. I was moved by all the diversity I witnessed in the faces before me, singing and dancing along to the beat of Darren's groove, Greg's anthem guitars, and Paul's soaring vocals.

I love to see music touch people. This is why I play. I love my job. I love music. Chicago makes me love it more.

Thanks, Chicago!

You almost make me feel like I was there. But, you neglected to mention the mesmerizing bass of a certain musician I know. LOL

Seriously, I mentioned the bass solo here in SLC to another band member who had a similar experience when you played your bass solo (I don't recall where he saw you play.)

It is sooooo obvious how much you love to play, and it makes a difference. Thanks, for making such great music, and thank you for sharing your experiences. It means a lot.
