Bros. featuring Mark Johnson from Hunnie Bunnies, to the more chilled out folk of Peace, Loving, and doing interesting one off performances with groups such as Libras of Sound (with Greg Beson), utilizing a full concert venue’s sounds and light board, while doing a performance consisting of a ten minute sound check that morphs into a into a game of hide and seek, spanning the entire venue.
