Thanks to Budrock “The Illuminator” Prewitt (Willie gave him that name), for sharing photos from last night’s show. You can almost feel the love and enjoyment and excitement of the fans, getting to see Willie Nelson and family in concert.

Cool venue.

Here’s Buddy’s unique view, from his office last night. He does such a great job lighting the band so we can enjoy the show, no matter where we are sitting.

And there’s Bobby Lemons, Sound Engineer

Willie Nelson & Family at the Windy City Smokeout, with electronic backdrops

Friday, August 5th, 2022

No Texas flag flying behind the band at the Windy City Smokeout in Chicago Thursday night. Budrock, the Illuminator and lighting engineer for Willie Nelson & Family got creative with electronic backdrops, like this one for “I’ll Love You ‘Til the Day I Die”. So beautiful.

And this one for “Bloody Mary Morning”, flyin’ down to Houston
Forgetting her, the nature of my flight.

I love this one he used for, “I thought about you, Lord”, with the Abbott Methodist Church beautifully displayed.

Budrock worked hard at Poodie’s Picnic on 6/28/09 in Austin, making sure things went smoothly.  I never saw him sit down once all day.

“1977.   Not my first Willie show as a fan, but the FIRST Willie show that I was the Lighting Director. That was awhile back and I’m still here. Lucky, I guess. Greatful, for sure.”

Tomorrow we are doing Farm Aid. We've been doing them since 1985. It's about awareness and saving our farmers. Pretty great lineup….all are unpaid. Check out who cared in 1986 and 2019.
