I've been very busy with the new version of the Professor World Band since returning from Guatemala. and it's been lot's of fun. I also have been working on a rotating platform for it which is pretty awesome. I had a rotating stage years ago when I was traveling around Europe but this newer version is much easier to set up and transport and it needs no motor to keep it going around. It's a real attention getter and people have been very excited about it. I'm hoping for a good season playing in the Public Gardens and Harvard Square. When it starts getting hot perhaps I'll take a trip up to Canada this year.
You can see the rotating stage in the developmental phase in this recently made documentary made by Harvard student, Michael Genecin for a class.
Now I have also mounted wheels underneath it so if I want I can set the whole thing up at my house and wheel it about a mile down to Harvard Square to play. It's a lot of fun playing on it, although I do tend to get a bit dizzy at times.
