On May 20, 1991, the band returned for an encore performance of “Virtual Reality” at the F.M. Station. We were expecting some new faces in the audience because three-days earlier Music Connection magazine published a review of the show in their May-June edition.
The entire performance looked very professional at the FM Station. The lighting equipment there was especially complimentary to our show.
Around this time, Marianne Smith, the band’s booking agent and promoter, mailed a press-kit of the “Virtual Reality” show to Disneyland to see if we could join the ranks of entertainment there… Disney’s response was very definitive… “Regretfully, we do not have an opening in our entertainment schedule for your particular act at the present time, nor do we anticipate any openings in the near future…”
So, basically, sorry Parousia… not now, OR EVER! Not very “inclusive” of the Mouse to shine us off like that. Maybe our “particular act” was too scary for the kids? …too sexy? Maybe it was just bad timing. After all, it was still ten-years away from the opening of the Down Town Disney district which added more outdoor stages and several new acts to play live music. If only the letter said, “try again in 10-years”… >sigh<
