and Red Sky Performance.

 

The ongoing support and labour of friends, colleagues and artists in the first year of The Roadshow are also responsible for its success. Thank you so much.

 

Kevin Araya and his team at JP Storage went out of their way to deliver The Roadshow container and get it parked in some tricky places.  Their kindness and support is appreciated.  We were treated the same by Robert Reed at King Con Storage where we stored the container in the winter months.
