Live from Inside the California Institution for Wo
One night at rehearsal, Doug mentioned that, years ago, some of his friends had played a gig at a men's prison in Chino. According to them, it was one of the best gigs they had ever played. Being the politically correct, adventurous band that we are, we decided to do a live recording from inside a female correctional institution. The first step was to find an institution that was, A. local, and B. willing to let us in. We searched the internet and set our sights on The California Institution for Women, in Chino, California. Fortunately for us, the Warden, John Dovey, loved our 1st CD and gave us his permission to perform and record. With his blessing, the legal department in Sacramento agreed as well and we were on our way. Six months of planning, multiple clearance forms, and 8 pages of equipment inventory were what it took to get us inside. After 4 concerts, they didn't want to let us out!
