Williamsport, PA...Community Arts Center

Recommended Posts

YOu know I'm very happy about this tour and that it's bringing in the first timers....be it through local promotion or season ticket holders. All Clay needs is for people to see and hear him..he'll do the rest. I'm sure he's charming the socks off the newbies tonight.

OCOCE. I think he did the standard pre-song banter about the boyhood church services.

Another standing O.

I couldn't decipher much of the pre-DSIAFCD speech, although I did hear a different voice at times. I'm assuming it was the orchestra conductor talking about his group.

Baby that's a fact - screams.

Quote:

WORDS OF THE DAY

1 Crescendo - soft to loud (not as fun as Aspie's definition!)

2 Decrescendo - Loud to soft

3 Fermata - Held note

4 Sforzando - a sudden burst of sound on a chord

5 Tremolo- (tremble) a string player shakes their bow reeeeaaal fast on the string for effect such as in scary music.

another set of definitions:

a. A tremulous effect produced by rapid repetition of a single tone.

b. A similar effect produced by rapid alternation of two tones.

6. Pizzicato - I-talian (â„¢CHA) term meaning "pinching". It is used for string instruments to indicate that the strings must be pinched instead of playing with the violin bow.

A tremolo performed on a piano would be 2 notes one octave apart played in rapid succession ie: low E high E low E high E...

Add col legno, "With the wood", bowed instrument struck with the wood rather than the hair of the bow.

I think the first word was in Merrillville.

Per the cellcerter, pre DSIAFCD banter:

"Support your local arts organization, because most artists get their start that way. Unless you're Paris Hilton or Britney Spears." pause. "Or Kelly Ripa."

The cellcerter was explaining the laughter during the beginning of TCS / HYAMLC, One of the men in the front row, which was very close to the stage, stood up to take a picture. He must have practically been in Clay's face, so it cracked Clay up.

Per the certer, paraphrasing here: Good hair, good assage. Much giddiness.

Newbies are raving about Clay - "Phenomenal."

From CH.

Frameless glasses, gray pinstripe suit, gray shirt and brown tie.

Made a lot of jokes about the internet. His eyes are dried out that's why he has glasses on.

Quite a few have not been to a concert before. Many men and families.

There was just quite a detailed description of how Clay partially stood up from the stool to make an "adjustment" to his pant leg and whatnot. The relevant part being whatnot.

At least 12 men, of all ages, at the bus line.

I think they said jojoct got the whole show from the balcony, but don't hold me to that.

I'll leave that last comment to stand on its own merits...heh...

Claygasm just called! She said:

After initial disappointment of seeing the glasses and then no stubble, she really enjoyed it!

His voice was wonderful; he looked great (even though the glasses and this hair just 'don't go together' hee)

Funny, funny, funny! Basically cracked up when the man stood up to take his picture.

When the woman said what the word of the day meant 'playing with wood', he couldn't help himself---he cracked up and then when he asked a young girl about it, he said, "You're too young to understand that joke!"

Very nice pants.

Very nice pants. (oh, sorry...heh)

LOTS of 'newbies'---she talked to someone who said she only 'knew' Clay from AI, but that he was just wonderful and she'd definitely be looking for his concerts and CDs...

Said throughout the concert she'd look at some of the people who'd identified themselves as first timers and that they were always really engaged, laughing and applauding enthusiastically.

A good time was had by all!

Oh...CG said she thought he should've worn his black boots instead of the brown...BWAH! :lol:

ER...did I already mention that his pants looked really good? :unsure:

After all the angst over the missed notes in the first concert, I'm glad to know that the Clay Nation has come together to focus on what's really important:

THE PANTS!!!!

from OFC via CH:

A zillion people are at the buses and Jerome said that he would try to make sure that all the girls would be able to say hi to Clay and that Clay would be about 30 minutes. Oh...what a sweet guy!! They can see the dogs in the bus..Raleigh and Durham. The girls are really excited about the 30 minute wait...I am jealous!!!

The bus is totally electronic and the curtains are electronically controlled....

There was video taping, JoJo got it all from the loge...other's did as well, they took one video away b/c the security said that was different than still photography....

who is this kindler gentler Jerome... be gone heee

I think that Clay is determined to do the bus lines as often as he can, and Jerome is charged with making it happen. If you look at the bus pictures and read the decriptions, Jerome is glued to Clay's side the whole time, ready to move him out of there at a moment's notice. Also, maybe the fans are a bit better trained. And, I think the fact that the bus leaves relatively quickly after the show (compared to the JNT, which took much longer to pack up, I assume) contributes to Clay's willingness to greet the lines.
