Time-lapse of REO Speedwagon crew setting up the stage, John Aldridge setting up the drum kit at Downstream Casino Resort on 9/16/2017.Over 2 hours of work into 38 seconds of video.Outdoor stage with high winds, and a lots of activity with people and gear. And a storm rolled in right at show time, just missing the venue by a few miles, hence the song.This gives a birds eye view from behind the drum riser, of how much work it takes to bring these shows to life. Dedicated crew.This was a huge honor to do.
