Acoustic Apple - Long Island Bluegrass Festival - 8/20/2016
Acoustic Apple (Gary Schoenberger and Steve Angliss) managed to perform 2 songs before monsoon rains hit the 2016 Long Island Bluegrass Festival. The crowd took cover during the 3rd song as windswept rain pummeled the beachfront festival. Power to the sound equipment was finally cut as Gary and Steve completed their 3rd song. Certainly a memorable performance. The storm passed in 45 minutes and the festival resumed under sunny skies. There have been many times we have been in the audience at a festival when it rained (sometimes even a hurricane-level microburst), but this was the first time viewing it from the performer's perspective on stage.
