I wandered into the sound check of the Andy T Band of Nashville, Tennessee this evening while questing for orbs.
Markey, the female backup singer, is already an orb enthusiast.
Friends and family of the band amused themselves playing “catch the orb” while we waited for the show to start.
Sound check had the orbs interested, but when Nick Nixon, formerly of the New Imperials, took center stage, the orbs turned up their wattage.
The band has been crisscrossing Arizona for a few weeks and are homeward bound for a day in Nashville.
They obviously enjoy working together. And their music brought out the best in orbs.
I must admit that every time I got an extra-large luminous orb in my camera I showed it off to friends in the audience. Can’t help but share the joy of orbs with each and everyone!
I gave up my rule about only one flash per song. There are too many choice moments to see how the orbs are reacting to the music.
Nick Nixon trained to sing opera when he left high school, which he had to unlearn when he took up rhythm and blues. But, man, he can really light up an orb when he lets loose with his full-bodied vocals.
