Chris Botti ... part 2

Some of the people in the orchestra were complaining about the volume, and it reminded me of the time I was doing monitors for the band Boris (one of the loudest bands I have ever heard - and a lot louder than a Jazz band !!). 

Anyway, we were in the middle of soundcheck, and I was dialing up the bands monitor mixes, which was made somewhat difficult by the fact that I do not speak Japanese, and they did not speak that much English, and I brought up some guitar in the drummers mix, and he got up, walked over the monitor console, and said (in thick Japanese accent), "... too loud.." 

I can only imagine what the orchestra would have thought about the volume of that show....
