Hoboken411 reader photo of the day – 5/5/2009

“The festival was GREAT … it was the wettest, and fun-est one I’ve ever done, and I go way back to 1999 with these things! We rigged up a tent over the stage, hung tarps, etc. and ran sound out of the back of an old school bus … the most amazing thing were the crowds we had! We played four sets!”

No problem on the north side. Joe Taino was rocking and the sound people were great. They pinned it just right.

Too bad more folks couldn’t be out to enjoy it. Joe did a rendition of “Riders on the Storm” I’ve never heard him do before. It was excellent.

I felt bad for the bands. The couple of times I was down at the end where the stage was, their sound really suffered from being under the tent.

If they’re going to make this tent a permanent thing, maybe they might consider investing in a couple of spotlights so people can actually see the musicians. I was about halfway back and because it was overcast the Box Tops looked like they were playing in silhouette.
