Ivan,
Thanks for your interest in the Canadian shows. The team had a great time and are on their way back to Bose (Massachusetts). They will post results soon!

Thanks,

Nathan

Re: We're coming to Canada! Two shows- Long & McQuade Musical Instruments.

I was there on Thursday (had the flu and very nearly didn't go).

Ended up sitting about 5 feet in front of Tony Sarno (I was in the front row). I was blown away without being blown away. If you ever get a chance to sit that close to a band running PASs you that bizarre statement will make sense.

Had a great chat with Tony and Wolf after the show.

Friday morning as soon as L&M (the store that sponsored the show) opened,
I picked up my PAS. (one bass module)

Since I'm under the weather, I took the rest of the day to get to know the unit. Good times.

Get my first chance to try it out live tonight.

Many many thanks to all the people at Bose who made the investment to travel to Canada.

I was somewhat taken aback that Bose would make so large an investment (you sent what - 10 people including the band?)

Tony, if you happen to see this, I'll send you the information about the McIntyre amp later today.

Wolfe, if you happen to see this, I'm the guy with the Musicman EVH and the PRSs.

I'll post more about how I intend to use it and some questions in the other forums.

Re: We're coming to Canada! Two shows- Long & McQuade Musical Instruments.

Hi all, especially to those who came out to the shows in Toronto and Vancouver! On behalf of my colleagues at Bose Corporation and Long & McQuade Musical Instruments, we had a great time putting on these shows for the folks out there in Canada. The turnout for these shows were great!

I like the interaction I'm able to have on the road with working musicians who completely understand what this product offers: to improve live musical experiences for both musicians and their audiences.

I can't tell you how good it feels to be working on a product that would inspire an audience member to say that it was the best live show they've ever been to (Vancouver).

Thanks to everyone who turned out to check out the product at these shows! For the new Canadians on the message board- Welcome!

Here are some photos of the shows:



Show #1: Toronto's Hard Rock Cafe:




The crowd begins to take their seats:



It ended up being a full house that night, over 110 people.



The Linemen crank out the tunes:




Show #2: Vancouver's French Cultural Center was the location for the second show. Here's a picture of half the audience area. We had just opened the doors. The crowd begins to file in. Another full house that night with a great audience and questions. Many excited musicians came out.



Bruce McGrath of The Linemen belts out a killer soprano sax solo to the Meter's "Sissy Strut".
