Third up was Geoff Lundstrom. Formerly, he was known as Geoffrey Lundstrom, and I’m betting it’s “formerly” because of the easy confusion between rey and ery after Geoff.

As with Evan, there was a lot of lady love for Geoff. Can’t imagine why.

Finally, Robbie Aylesworth brought together a supergroup of talent, with Acres of Lions’ Dan Ball on bass, Noah Edwards on guitar, and prolific producer/tech dude (like Robbie)/drummer Todd Hooge on kit.

The gent with the hat is Luca Dashwood of the Tall Tree Music Festival. It took a couple of tries, but he eventually made contact with Robbie’s head mid-song.
