Little Shop of Horrors (again)

Postby GonzoBass » Sat Apr 09, 2011 3:32 am

Just received confirmation this afternoon-

I'll be holding down the bass chair for "Little Shop of Horrors" once again
but this time for an eight show run at the beautiful historic Palace Theater
and under the absolutely amazing musical direction of Cheryl "Quack" Moore
(25 years as MD for Saturday Night Live and all around bad ass/sweatheart).

The show won't happen until fall
(first rehearsals in September/opening first weekend in October)
but I figure, why wait?
So I am smiling already.

YOU ARE WORKING WITH QUACK!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

A musical godess, the SNL band died once when Paul left, and then died for good when she stepped down. G.E. Smith is a ham sandwich. Cheryl Moore is a master's master musician, I am humbled just knowing someone who will share a stage with her.
"Time Is the river, eternity is the ocean, music is the water.
Play what you hear, hear what you play.
Trust your ears, serve your soul." ~Philip Toshio Sudo "Zen Guitar"

Yeah BFB, I wish I knew half of what Quack has forgotten...
[smilie=cheeky-smiley-025.gif]

She retired out here, took the helm of the neglected Palace Theater
and has brought it back to glorious life.

She has an upright guy she uses for most shows
("Sound of Music", etc.)
but with it's rock/Motown feel and slap parts
this score really calls for bass guitar.

This will be my first musical with her,
although I came close to doing "Jesus Christ Superstar" a few years back
(another bass guitar score)
but a fire sprinkler system malfunction at the theater cancelled the show
when it went off undetected over a three day weekend
leaving the place under several feet of water.

Here we are after playing a family wedding reception at her house-

First band rehearsal tonight
(what Quack calls "first slog-through).

So I am up and in the woodshed early.

Heh, haven't felt this excited about a rehearsal in years.

Second "slog-through" tonight
(second batch of tunes).

Was up early, ran 'em again and again.
So I'll play confident tonight.

I'm honored to be included in the amazing batch of musicians she's assembled.
Most educators;
Trumpet- Armando Mendoza, Hilo High School Band
Sax- Randy Skaggs, St. Joseph High School Band
Guitar- Trever Veilleux, UH Hilo Jazz Ensemble
Drums- Bo Wade, Head of the Percussion Dept. at UH Hilo
a few additional horn players,
not to mention Quack herself.


...and then ME!
Ha!!!

First rehearsal with the cast tonight.

Trever and I were excused last night from tech rehearsal because we had a gig
(Quack's so damn cool...)
but now it's every night this week,
as we head into what is affectionately known in the theater circle as "Hell Week".

Show opens Friday.
