    Tried to watch your livestream Sunday night at 7pm. The audio was so bad I had to turn it off. Was it just mine?

      We are sorry for the difficulty. Technical answer is that the sound was distorted for the first few songs because the audio coming from the band’s sound person’s system was overdriving the EMS system (too much audio signal for EMS system to handle so the sound was distorted). Our technician was able to fix it after the first couple of songs, so most of the concert was fine.
