The warehouse with all this Hill gear is a 15 minute drive from my shop and I've worked for the owner Mike Scarfe for the last 25 years or so. And the Antietam Battlefield is only a 20 minute drive from my shop. So if you REALLY NEEDED them there tomorrow morning and had a budget, I could make it happen.  ;)

But I'm being realistic and can probably get permission for use of the field, and maybe a sponsor or two pay incidental costs like the genny and a few hotel rooms for the out-of-town folks. I can bring old-school speakers and amps and mixers and mics. I just need to know what the PF cover band would need to play through, etc...


I would bring a motor home to stay in could sleep 6 comfortably.  Also have access to a bunk house toy hauler that would sleep another 8.

Okay this really is getting real.  😀

I'm local, so barring me being out of town I'll be all over this.

And doesn't Scarfe still have his XL4?  At least that'd be from the right side of the pond.

All these sound guys in one place. Gonna be fighting over faders....

First I need to contact the Park Service to see what sort of application needs to be made for usage of the property. And since Mike Scarfe has done the sound at the Antietam Battlefield for the MSO on July 4th over the last 25 years or so, I should be able to find the right person to talk to.

And I really do want to mix this in quad. Hey, I was on a discussion panel with Alan Parsons years ago discussing his quad mix of DSOTM. I would really dig sitting in the middle of the battlefield with speaker stacks on all four corners.

Does anyone have a laser light show to bring to the party?

The keyboard player for WYWH still travels with a real Moog.  I don't know enough what model but it has hard patches.


They take a few modern conveniences, the clocks on Time are sampled but the congos are done live.  They are at the HOB on 3/29 you should make the drive to Cleveland and join me, I could introduce you to the guys.

I'll be in Paris, France that week, so that's too long of a drive back. ;)  But we should discuss this soon on the phone.

Snort!  Old school, I got your old school baby. 

... I can probably find a Yamaha PM4000 to mix on. Again, heavy as all crap (1,000 lbs in the case IIRC) but that's "old school" baby.

So according to my guitar player Karl, here is the route their tour bus would have taken for this leg of the tour. All completely doable.
