The Cryptones wowed 'em again, this time at the Wide World of Sales Conference opening reception in New Orleans. It was a great conference kick-off and very amazing considering they only had three days of practice.
YouTube is having some kind of problem - it is taking forever to upload video and then when it plays it keeps stopping and starting, like it can't buffer fast enough. So I am going to post them on my Vimeo account and see if that works here.
Here's the first one to try, the unplugged version of Layla. If it works I will post the rest once they are uploaded.
Actually, in case I don't get around to updating this post right away, if you are interested go to the Vimeo site by clicking here, and type "cryptones" in the Search box at top right. Our Cryptones videos start on the second page.

This was a surprise - Brenda Ayala-Figueruelo, Family Service Coordinator for Serenity Meadows in Riverdale, FL, took lead vocals for an impromptu version of Dreams. Not too bad considering the Cryptones had never practiced the song and never met Brenda before this!
