First Game of 2012

16 Apr

Last Wednesday was the first game of 2012 with me playing the organ. It was a blast.

Several things made last Wednesday’s game an awesome one.

-I put in tons of work over the off season to have more material than ever prepared. This includes new tunes, new medleys, and new charges clap tracks.

-Because of the threat of rain, I was in a booth instead of outside. I love being outside with the fans, so this was more ‘different’ that ‘good’. But the cool thing about being in a booth was no wind blowing my music all over, and an unobstructed view of the game. Look at this view from the booth, and SD looking all gorgeous.






-Also, I had easy access to hot dogs in the middle of the game. Noice.



– We had a visitor from Japan who took my pic and tweeted it to a bunch of Japanese Fans. Check it out!


And in case you’re wondering what he’s talking about, here is the Google Translation:



Alrighty. I think he was talking about his team back at home, the Orix Buffaloes. They’re a team from Osaka (or at least near Osaka).

-I figured out a way to make the organ sound even sweeter than it already does. I’m using this cool piece of technology called a NEO VENTILATOR. It takes a raw organ signal and processes it through a rotary speaker simulation. The result is we don’t have to mic up the organ like we’d been doing. This gives us a cleaner and stronger signal. And it sounded sweet.

What else was cool about Wednesday? Oh yeah,




Which is no small feat, considering that so far we have only won 2 games out of the 10 we’ve played. In fact my stats for winning games are pretty good. I’ll post about them soon.


What else……Played some ‘Weezer’ for a fan who wasn’t at the game when I played it, played some ‘Los Tigres Del Norte’, played some ‘Beatles’, played some jazz.

Met some cool people, including Corey Brock (beat writer for the Padres), had a passing conversation with Dick Enberg, and met Steve Adler of the Friarhood after the game. Cool.


Looking forward to April 25th. Hoping we get some wins before then.
