Rob performing the opening set at ON THE VERGE : The 21st Century Guitar, at ELDER PARK for the 2007 Adelaide International Guitar Festival. Other acts on the bill were Ed Kuepper, Kaki King, David Lindley and Vernon Reid.
Rob is playing one continuous piece, largely improvised, based on WATER MUSIC I, II, & III and ROB'S FREAKOUT - from his TERRAFIRMA album (2007).
Awsome footage! Thanks to the AIGF!!!
I was sick as a dog that week, having pretty bad tonsilitus and dosed up to the eyeballs with anti-biotics. (Mixed with beer before the show!)
I performed again a week later at the SA GUNSLINGERS show, (footage - highlights to come soon!) by which time my tonsilitus had given way to a secondary bacterial infection!!! (I always seem to get sick before gigs!)
Nevertheless, I reckon I gave a great performance, and the whole buzz and adrenaline rush got me thru' it!
