So, thankfully they're still setting up instruments & doing sound checks at Picasso's, as we arrived 20 mins late. This now makes us unfashionably early but allows for sneak peeks, behind-the-scenes looks at the 3 backup singers, w/full accompaniment (a real piano, drum cage, bass, bongos, full sound board,et al).
This is a big deal, as they're videoing it (they're doing a live recording, probably for CD/DVD. Strange then, that he didn't ask me to sing a duet...). There's over 40 people here, which considering they've taken over the main lower floor means we're all enjoying mosh pit-like intimacy.
More soon, w/pix assuming my beautiful photog will snap some good ones.
