The car was Bomb Squad, the band (I believe) was from MonkeyPuzzle, maybe Matt(?) was the lead singer. Address 3:35 and Esplanade....

Glad you enjoyed the music. For this trip we were called The Mixtape Conspiracy...but we have been known for years as either:

The Kaosmosis No-Star All-Stars
The Nowhere Band
Stynx
After Me Gold
Manaconda

...and so forth. The singer is John Averill from March Fourth Marching Band...the drummer is Ryan Moore, the guitarist is Dave Camp, the bassist is Arthur Parker and I'm Carl Tietze aka Solovox (an electronic performer here in Portland).

We were on the Mobile Groove Bomb from Portland...hope you enjoyed the show and I apologize for my solo in 'Bloody Well Right.'

I was camped next door to them. We really enjoyed their live music, and the classical music they played during the Saturday fireworks show.

Glad you enjoyed...my rig wasn't booted up yet so I played the 'Ode To Joy' segment from Beethoven's Ninth.

I said it somewhere else here, too, but I'll say it again. Ode To Joy was absolutely perfect that night, at that moment, with the fireworks blasting off like they were. We were watching the burn from just off Esplanade, to the right of the Mobile Grove Bomb and it was wonderful.

Thanks again from myself and some other folks who were camped with BWB this year. You made it grand.

So glad you enjoyed!

And to my DISMAY...I forgot to mention that the great Jason Wells from Trashcan Joe was a our guest vocalist on much of the Beatles material...he sang 'All You Need Is Love' and 'Instant Karma' among others. I love you Jason!
