These are a few photos from the sound check.  I’ll put up some more as I find time to sort them. Hope you like them.

Roy had a migraine earlier but managed to shrug it off though it left him a bit drained – I don’t think it showed.


There is a lot of work getting the sound levels and tone right, coordinating the musicians and arrangements, and getting the lighting right. Sound checks are fraught with focussed attention and intensity. Everything is organised to the last detail. A lot goes on. Quite a bit different to the days when Roy would hitch-hike into a small club, take his guitar out of the case and step up to the microphone.
