with Grin Convention - May 15, 2008
Fusion Festival in Surrey, BC, July 18th 2010, allows diversity of many local communities to present their arts and culture.
Veenar solo was a challange to amplify. Sound was not rich on the open field but some people could appreciate the music. I want to improve the instrument and make music suitable for big events like this.
North West Music May 15 midnight 2008: My first concert in Vancouver with Kari, Steve, Rob and Trevor, as Grin Convention. Great people, it was true honor to play with the group. Using my instrument was an experiment as veenar is primarily acoustic and sounds best this way. With the help of Fishmen pickup and Roland amp AC-90 my instrument sounded strong and I was quite please with the sound.
My new veenar sunds strong and crisp.
