   In Stereo had a great weekend at the Canyon Inn. We have been playing a lot of shows lately so the band was very tight and our voices were strong. Friday night we had a full house and the people were up and dancing early. Friday was another night where we didn’t play very many slow songs. The crowd just wanted to dance and party all night long. There were a couple birthdays and the mood was really good in the room. Kyle had some family show up and it’s always good to see them out there in the audience. It was just a good solid show and we put a lot of energy into it. By the end of the night our fingers were sore and so were our throats.        

   Saturday night the crowd was a little slower to get going and the room filled up a little later. But once the crowd got going, wow! We got some of the loudest cheers we’ve heard in a long time. We had some good friends and family show up again and Tom’s daughter Heidi Nedreberg got up and sang with us. She knocked the crowd out with killer renditions of Folsom Prison, Rock-N-Roll, You Oughta Know and she really knocked it out of the park with I’m The Only One. Heidi sang I’m The Only One really well and the band played great on it too so it was an over-the-top performance with all the elements clicking together extremely well. It was truly a case of live musician energy putting a song over the top. It’s something you just can’t get from a recording. By the end of the song the crowd was right up against the stage and when we hit that final note, the crowd went wild! Ted’s son Alec and his buddy Dane showed up on Saturday as well and it was good to see them. It’s always a great feeling onstage when you see your friends and family out in the crowd.

   All in all it was a great weekend and we’re looking forward to playing the Canyon Inn again really soon.
