You could hear a pin drop in the hour and ten minutes spanning NOW International's latest show on the edge of the Great Salt Lake this last Saturday. These are just a few moments I caught on my iPhone over the intense 'FEAST' experience we created at Saltair. Such a marvelous night, made possible by so many beautiful patrons, gracious sponsors and volunteers. From the load-in of an enormous 50ft. custom 'table' (our stage), lighting and sound–through to our strike yesterday some some strong helpers...  'FEAST' was a huge undertaking for a company this size. Six months in the making, and fully realized by our incredible guest performers with direction by Charlotte Boye-Christensen, founder and husband Nathan Webster in collaboration with Flying Bobcat Theatrical Laboratories.

The talented David Newkirk and Dena Eaton have posted select photos. More will be coming soon, either here or at NOW-ID.com. We want to thank everyone for taking this journey with us. We hope you felt it was as stunning a success as we did.

My view from the DJ booth, near the very end of the show. I got to play on the same sound system that SLAYER used the week before!
