Last Friday night, just a stone’s throw away from where Frank Sinatra and The Rat Pack performed their legendary shows, James Dempsey and the Breakpoints made their Las Vegas debut. The jam featured songs from the upcoming album Backtrace.
Taking the stage for the first time as Conditional Breakpoints were Jean MacDonald (@macgenie) founder at App Camp for Girls, on guitar for Goto Fail; and Matt Smollinger (@mattsmollinger) of Skaffl on backing vocals for The Liki Song. Josh Smith (@kognate) of AllTrails made a switch from blues xylophone last month to guitar. Adding to the excitement, Jonathan Penn (@jonathanpenn), recent hire at everyone’s favorite fruit factory, flew in just in time to don his trademark sunglasses, tune up and jam. Finally, Daniel Steinberg (@dimsumthinking) of Dim Sum Thinking delivered his excellent keynote before jumping in on slide-advance keyboard.
