Everyone was pretty nervous just before going on stage The house was packed for Kansas, but Jabberwockie had a fair amount of fans in attendance for their first major concert

Ryon Lawton on drums Jake rocks... Britta's background vocals were very strong, and complimented Jake's voice very well

The sound was awesome, even though there were some minor glitches with the bass amp sound Jake seemed very comfortable, and his voice was strong. Shawn O'Trimble on lead guitar

Ya' can't have a Kansas concert in co-founder Kerry Livgren's hometown, without having him sit in on guitar! In fact during the concert, Robbie Steinhardt (on violin) mentioned that it seemed everytime he turned around, he met another "Livgren."
