Horseshoe Casino Indiana

Well, here we are in the middle of nowhere for rehearsals!

The casino complex is huge and right next to the Ohio river which flooded a few days ago so they are still cleaning up the lobby etc.
It is a bit like an airport with moving sidewalks to get to the different parts of the building.
The first thing that hit us here was the smell of cigarette smoke in the air, smoking is allowed pretty much everywhere and it's pretty grim.

The staff are lovely and all very helpful, making sure we all get fed in between run thru's, one of my jobs is to find out what the band wants to eat and get the meals ordered ahead of time.
I am dressing a bit warmer for run thru's now, they keep the building air conditioned and it's cold!
The man is of course working his socks off (scuse the pun) under stage lights so he is taking things off whilst I am putting on more.
They did some adjustments on his guitar sound yesterday and now I can hear every fab note he is playing. (he says, "what! you are hearing every bad note!" Noooooo, fab note silly)
Thursday is the first gig, cant wait to see an audience here, will let you know how that goes.
