Can't see Chimenti playing

#3196 3 years, 6 months ago
jeff is buried behind his equipment. I think it would add tremendously to the fan's enjoyment of the performance if we could see Jeff playing keys. Perhaps a strategically placed mirror or two, what has worked for other artists?

Great idea. It's hard to see him playing behind all of his stuff. I'm so glad Furthur keeps him around- awesome, talented musician.

I agree...Jeff is an awesome, very talented keyboard player....but I dont know about the mirror idea.

Jeff is an amazing talent. I would love to be able to see him play. I recall Rick Wakeman having mirrors, but I am open to suggestions. In the meantime I can watch Phil all night every night.

He is amazing. He did have a mirror up at the Nokia, but that's for sightlines when he plays the keyboards in the back. Also helped that they have those flat screens up there that will cut to him from time to time.

He also hunches over pretty good when playin the Yamaha piano. Man he gets into it.

GO JEFF~

I was front row directly in front of Jeff at Patriot Center and when he switched from organ to piano I could see the piano perfectly from under the organ.

Well, you can just do what I do and go stand right in front of him. : P ( Of course that only works for GA)
He is so #$*&ing talented that there really aren't enough superlatives. : )))

Really, tho, given the jostling for position that takes place in front of him, I know there are alot of people who would like to see Jeff playing.

Somehow mirrors seem like they might be distracting.
