My wife and I are big fans of Brandi Carlile. Their Flagstaff, AZ show was one of the highlights of our honeymoon. We've even taken road trips to KY and TX to catch their show in smaller theater's, dance halls and even playing with a symphony in a large concert hall; every show has a special memory.
It wasn't until about a year ago that I got the idea to try and setup an interview with the band. The only problem was that Brandi had never toured through Florida. After an extensive Google search, a few phone calls and a few dozen emails we had actually setup a date and time! As it turned out, we didn't just have any old interview but the first headlining BC show in Florida; every show has a special memory :)
My wife interviewed the band while Charlie and I setup lights, cameras and audio. We were given 15 minutes in a tiny white room, while Amy Ray played her opening set (the tour manager told me, "it's gonna be real rock 'n roll!"). The interview lasted 9 minutes before Brandi had to rush onto the stage to perform her duet with Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls.
Our thanks goes out to Brandi, the Hanseroth twins, TrueFire.com, Columbia Records, Brendan and ultimately Sandee for making this possible!
