The Big Time Out

This past weekend, on Saturday, August 13th, I accompanied The Great Giffoni at the Big Time Out Festival!!

Our first show was early in the day, and was at the "Kid's Zone" at the festival. Although our first show was competing with the sound of the band's on stage, we still had a great audience of happy little faces - who were very intrigued and charmed by the magic show, the bunny, and of course Princess Muffin.

This festival had to have a quick relocation, originally planned for being at the Cumberland Village Park - was now at the Ash Berry Farm. A slightly smaller patch of land, it didn't seem to get in the way of the fun that was being had, the musical acts, food and fashion vendors, tipi dance tent, as well as the Burlesque tent.

With several hours in between The Great Giffoni's Magic Show sets, I was able to check out the festival, nibble on the food, dance around, people watch, and run in to friends :)

At one point my boyfriend and I were really enjoying the sounds coming from the band on stage, and as we walked closer I realized it was a band I knew - Brasstronaut, which a musician friend of mine - Sam Davidson - plays in. We originally met while performing together at the TD International Vancouver Jazz Festival in 2010, and it was a nice surprise to run in to him at this festival.

The second set of the magic show finally arrived, and we were inside the Burlesque tent this time. I love how this magic show appeals to all ages. I've accompanied The Great Giffoni at events where there are little ones as young as 1 or 2 years old in the audience, all the way to doing a birthday party for a woman in her late 80's who just adored magic shows and so her family had us come to entertain her.
This second show had an audience to those in their 20s, 30s, and 40s, and seemed thrilled to taken to another world within this festival where they could yell and laugh and be silly kids again. 

I was thrilled because I was finally using my accordion with proper amplification! Pick ups = happy Accordion Girl!

The show was a blast for me, the audience was great, I still don't know how The Great Giffoni finds the card in that deck while blindfolded!
One fun moment to note: as my boyfriend and I left the festival we went through a road block. There's nothing funnier than telling a police officer you have a chicken and a bunny in your back seat :)
