Los Angeles : The Palers' Festival

Some graphical souvenirs from Allen Edelist


These passes were prepared before we found out that BB King's club didn't actually have a 'backstage' area as such: the dressing-room upstairs came in handy, though, for some last-minute practice of bluegrass Procoling and so forth.

No visible changing went on, except when Roland put on a different shirt for his set with Ape neck, the support band.

 One-Eye, whose pass this is, drove all the way home to change into the fantastic suit (possibly dark grey mohair?) in which he sang Juicy John Pink evidently blue men can sing the whites

 

Each delegate to the Palers' Festival had a dangly neck-thing shewing who they were (calligraphy by Donna Roberds, who served a like office at the first Palers' Convention in Guildford, UK in 2000)

Mind you ... such has been the explosion of fans' socialising since 2000, there were not many people who were unknown to the mass of celebrants.

Printed invitations were sent to all members of Procol Harum, advertising the attractions of the Monday section of the Festival. Gary, Matthew, Geoff, Mark and Matt did indeed grace us with their presence and their music.
This was a flyer for the party, which no doubt contributed to the great throng at BB King's following the Procol gig (which was rained off, of course).

Another substantial contributor was the magnificent banner made by Neal Fischer, which was held aloft by the BtP's webmasters during one of the rainchecks.

Finally, the PH itinerary for the whole of Procol's West Coast tour
