yeah, if i understand it correctly, it is a music festival. not as big as say, Creation East or Cornerstone, but i think a music festival is the feel to expect.

(someone who has actually been to shoutfest, correct me if i'm wrong.)

went to it and LOVED it.. I'll post pics later I have 500+ of ShoutFest
ok Skillet was the 2nd to last preformer.. it was late like between 9 and 10 and they had the smoke going on too.. the first time I seen them they done that and it was closed in and nottoo dark so for it to be done at night time was extra cool for me.
Korey looked beautiful and so did Lori.. my motherinlaw was soo suprised Korey be so short and tiny flipping that guitar around as she did. She kept cmpimenting her on her outfit and her BIG shoes.
My 6 yr old girl was ticked off at me for a good portion of the shows.. I seen Ben early on in the evening and got his siggy.. and he had to go talk to another band for a sec...so she didnt get her shirt signed.. so all threw the other performers she like "MOM lets find BEN I want my shirt signed!!!.. later that night after Pillar had finished off the night Skillet was out doing sigs.. she was soo happy to get it... I told Ben about it and he told her he ws sorry for earlier..hes so sweet.
I had the pics from May with me to get signed and Korey was signing hers.. and one is her and my hubby she said " wow he looks familiar.. wow... Is he here? I think I seen him earlier(I guess in the crowd)
then I went to Lori and she loved the pics.. I told her u all liked the one of her throwing the cymball ( Ihad it posted b4 onhere) and she said 'Yeah its pretty awesome looking"
Ben liked his too..I told him I didnt like the lighting on a one.. he said that was the one he like.. he thought the lighting made it look better.
now John.. (this will take awhile)
He loved his pics.. told me I had an eye for doing pictures (haha I thought)i told him they are just soo photogenic (which they are)and just kept looking in awe at him..he had shown then to ben too....then looked at the others
We had 8 people there and wanted between 3-4 pics of each signed and one group shot and 6 shirts.. they took time for it ALL We even talked quite a bit too,, Koreys neck was hurting (I think she said someting about the alignment outta place)(but would be better soon) I asked her if it from rocking as hard as she does.. or the tour bus.. she said its not really due to rocking out, but more from the bumping bus.I asked her about Johns ( u all know how he throws his neck ALOT)she said he dont complain about it much.
But john was asking if all 8 of us was together and said yeah.. he "WOW" and u have a small one too... how old... told him she was 2..(she was kinda shy and a bit sleepy) He was talking about his girl she will say shes not sleepy but then falls out...Korey asked how far we came to see ShoutFest .. It was 3-3 1/2 hours of all 8 in a van.. she was amazed..
there was another couple there to take a pic.. I offered to take it so all can get in.. John says "yeah she'll know what to do shes ROCK MOM" and smiles so i take the pic and ask them if they want another just incase some reason it didnt take good, the lady said yeas please.. John said see she is a rocking mom.
we all were laffing about it.. I seen it was after 11.. so told them we'll let them be on their way and to be careful.. then we all got pics with the whole band, each of us 1 by 1...
They said thanks for supporting them and to be careful on the 3+ hr drive back..then John called me rock om once again and hooted...I absolutely love Skillet all around.

i have 2 pics of John watching Pillar play..but they are a bit fuzzy.. my neice freaked out when she seen Johns guitar behind the stage "Aint that Johns guitar Aunt Nicky??? Aint it...

09-11-2006, 12:25 PM
why was pillar headlining over Skillet? thats retarded, i dont think they are more popular, or have sold more units than SKillet. thats stupid

09-11-2006, 04:14 PM
I noticed that ALOT of people left after Skillet was done... So either they had no idea Pillar was there (dont know how they wouldnt know cause it was ALL over)
Or they just didnt wanna see em.

I liked Pillar ,but they come no where close to touching the greatness of Skillet.

Dude, I think on a bunch of the tours this summer, a LOT of other bands are headlining over Skillet. I know at Rock the Universe, they were the first ones on. Then there was MXPX and Relient K. I dont particularly think they are bad bands, but Skillet is just out of their league totally.

Actually it depends on how the show contract is negtioated between the promoter and the band management. In this case it would be Jeff Roberts the booking agent and the management of Skillet/Pillar.

I am the audio engineer for the side stage. I'll be there.

09-13-2006, 04:48 PM
sweet....you know what time Skillet is playing? i haven't been able to figure that out.

09-13-2006, 04:54 PM
I usually don't know that until the day of.

If you come to the tent in the middle of the crowd where we run the sound, we'll have a schedule there I can let ya read.

If it looks like we are busy (mixing bands or sound checking), then just wait until we don't look as busy before asking us. I'll be the guy in the black with long hair.
