Should be funny like the press conference today. Hosted by Matt Bearden.
I'm not really sure what was happening here.
A lone bass player finangled an on the spot audition that floored everyone in the room and may have scored him a booking. Though I think this dude is really a spy/papparazzo from ThorazineMZ.com
