The only downside was the curious feeling of detachment that you get whilst at the Roxy, and the muddy sound. Both Norm and I had noticed that from a few years back, from both watching and playing there. But unfortunately, unless they invest a fortune in acoustic engineering the place, it will always be thus, being an old church and all.
That didn't dim the enthusiasm and energy of the performers though, and it was a refreshing change to hear so many different sounds, not least from all the percussion. I also realised that I had been playing my darabuka completely wrong. I shall have to see if I can add that drum sound to a suitable song of The Storm's at some point.
