The Adventures of Slim Johnny... Performed
The Maritime Rock Opera Club got together and delivered the world premiere of "The Adventures of Slim Johnny" at the Stereophonic music festival in Sackville, NB, Canada. It was raw and ragged, my voice was perpetually out of tune, and we had no stage lighting, but the audience was warm and wonderful and in the end the rock opera was a success.
Jamie Brewer, our M-ROC guitarist, is putting together a little website to preserve the memories. You can check it out here.
We also got covered by the CBC, so feel free to check that action out here. Cue the show to 17 minutes 38 seconds for talk about the Stereophonic festival, 21 minutes 40 seconds for the rock opera itself.
