Haiti Benefit

On Saturday February 12th 2010 Capsicum Pro Audio had an awesome and amazing opportunity to help the people of Haiti. As a company we believe that it is important to help those in need, and we were honored to have the opportunity to help raise money for Haiti.
Hole Hearts for Haiti benefit show had all the best musical groups in the Western Wyoming region. Held at the Pink Garter Theater in Jack
son Hole.
The evening started off with the group "Soul Impressions" who played a soulful set of tunes from "Stevie Wonder" to "Prince". Following "Soul Impressions" two of Jackson Holes favorite D.J.s (Cutter and Chris Howell) took to the stage for set breaks and set changes.
Then "Jet Black Ninja Funk Grass Unit" delivered an amazing performance of their eclectic interpretations of many of our favorites from the 80's 90's and today. They definitely had everyone shaking their booties. Next up was one of my local favorites, "Mandatory Air". Lead by the Miller Sisters, Mandatory Air brought the heat!! Nobody was sitting still during their set!
The evening was closed out by Peter Chandler and his "Chan Man Roots Band". Chandlers island vibe had the audience dancing well past 2 a.m. Rocking all the classic reggae tunes and a few of his own originals.

The Pink Garter Theater was packed shoulder to shoulder, upstairs and down stairs all night long. It would be safe to say that 600-700 people came through the doors to offer their financial support for Haiti Relief. Foster Friess of Jackson Hole offered to match all donations up to $2 million dollars to aid the people of Haiti!!!

Capsicum Pro Audio provided a sound system and lighting rig that definitely impressed the audience and kept them in a dancing and giving mood.

I will post pictures soon.........
