Saw "Wicked" tonight at the Kennedy Center with the family (a birthday present for my wife). The kids and I took a peek in the pit before the show.


What keyboards were there?


Four Yamaha S90ES's.


Makes me proud. :thu:





Saw 3 Yamaha S90ES's in the pit for Young Frankenstein.

My wife and I went to see "Wicked" at the Bob Carr in Orlando. Absolutely wonderful show.


We'll get shows to the King Center here in Melbourne once in a while. I've seen "Rent" and "Hairspray" there. Looked in the pit for Hairspray. There were 3 Kuezweils.


And I saw "Classic Albums Live" there when it included our own Sven Golly.

Now everybody's got the blues."

Chicago: 3 K2600s, drummer, horn guy, guitarist and bassist. It's sad, but things is tough everywhere.


I did the Broadway touring show of Chicago around 2007. They hired a full band (10 piece I think) and we were in the middle of the stage. Good view of the dancing girls from up there. :love:

Big expensive tickets xshow - "The Sound Of Music" in Edinburgh.


Percussion, couple of multi brass, couple of reed/flute, two strings, four keyboards:


Yamaha piano

hardware Kurzweil

two Kurz controllers driving Mac VSTs


Sounded great BTW (I was in the audience - not playing).


The much smaller Perth Christmas panto:


1 Trumpet/tin whistle

1 Accordian

1 Roland digital piano (the new-ish 700 thing)


Wasn't playing at that either. They did their best.

"Oh no they didn't."

"Oh yes they did ..."


Like this thread. I feel quite cut off from my keyboard playing peers. This is the nerdy stuff that I want to know.

I'm the piano player "off of" Borrowed Books.
