Firehouse Theatre, Pleasanton CA
Jan 8th 2011
The Firehouse Arts Center is a newly built performing arts theatre that was converted from an old... & yes you can still slide down the old "fireman's poll" on intermission (VIPs only)
This was a special homecoming show for Trumpeter JEFF BORDES who grew up in Pleasanton. It was a blast for us all to come and perform in Jeff's hometown and get the opportunity to meet so many of Jeff's old schoolmates and friends who came out to show their support for Jeff and the band.
Back in September PANTHELION gave a short performance at the Firehouse theatre to help kick off the 2010-2011 concert series and showcase a bit of what's to come in the new hall. Needless to say we were all psyched to come get back onto the firehouse stage and let loose in full form.
Speaking of full form, we welcomed saxophonist & bass clarinetist CHAZZ ALLEY to the stage for his official PANTHELION debut... and he killed it!! Chazz has been no stranger to PANTHELION performances, mash-ups and collabs during the past year. Chazz' multifaceted, unique, soulful and at times downright vulgar expression, has become an indispensable part of PANTHELION' fabric. It has always been fun sharing the stage with Chazz and even more exciting to see the group growing and expanding with him now in the core family.
We had a sold-out audience in attendance, and the energy and love that was spread around the room was very inspiring. We saw some new faces, some young faces, some old friends and had an absolute blast with everybody.
Thanks for all the support and love in Pleasanton. Can't wait to come back to the Firehouse, Its always a treat!
