I was pretty confident that 'October Man' would be the band set opener and so I thought I was prepared. I've thought this before and every time I'm wrong.
The opening chords reduce me to a quiver and from that moment on all wordly worries disappear.

What music, what a day, !

A joy to be a part of once more after the year off. Great to see you again, Reg - also Martin, Angie and James Ellis and to meet Ian (Felix) for the first time. Bill, his fellow musicians and the whole Nelsonica team were excellent as always.ere's hoping Bill feels suitably fit and galvanised to do the same again next year.

lawrence, it was likewise great meeting you/jane, eugene/neola (sp?), billy, sue, barbara, sauropod, so many others, and dave/jane green who sold me their spare ticket!

i'll always remember standing in line waiting to meet/greet bill... and, when i finally determined a question, we were thinking "in 10 words or less, how would you describe bill's music to someone who's not familiar with bill/BBD?"

bill said, "ART MUSIC."

brilliant, of course! in TWO words!! then we scampered back to the table... :P

ladesco (louise)

p.s. silver glam c'boy hat made it home on the range unscathed!

I just wanted to say that it was a great Nelsonica this year and I really enjoyed it! I know everyone says it but it's true - everyone is so lovely - just a fantastic group of people. I loved meeting all my new friends and seeing the old ones again! Thanks again everyone for making it such a special day!

And let me just add my heartfelt thanks to everyone who made the day so great!

All 3 musical sets were fantastic:
- sublime playing in the solo set
- the band set was energetic & punchy (remarkably so given lack of rehearsal time)
- but my fave set was again Orchestra Futura - especially the last two pieces.

Thank you so much Bill

Neill

PS I've just been listening to the Theo Travis / Robert Fripp CD "Follow" that I bought at Nelsonica and wonderful it is too. What it really needs is an Orchestra Futura CD to keep it company... :wink: :wink:

PPS Would there ever be room in Orchestra Futura for a drummer/percussionist? We saw a rather good one in action on Saturday...
