The Orbitals accepted the engagement to perform as the opening act for a band named Resurrection Larry on February 12, 2010 at Murphy’s Pub.
Elroy Cabeza of The Orbitals arrived at Murphy’s at 8:45 pm. Donaldo Spulmaldi said he got there earlier. Douglas Horan arrived about 8:50 pm. The setting up of musical instruments took us about 15 minutes. During the time The Orbitals were setting up on stage someone notified us that Uncle Fester’s (leader of Resurrection Larry) battery in his Land Rover had malfunctioned. DRAMA! The trio started to play music right at 10:00 pm. We played 25 songs in 1 hour and 10 minutes. We finished playing at 11:10 pm. The musical program was The Orbitals Acoustic Duet set. There were about 50 to 60 people in the audience. It was a nice turn out. The Orbitals received a pleasant response from a really appreciative audience. A fun night was had by all who watched The Orbitals perform. Resurrection Larry began performing at 11:50 pm until 1:20 am. They performed loud electric rock.

A solo performance by The Orbitals only. It was a great night. We played well. The audience had fun. They were dancing. I think we played approximately 50 songs. I got to wear my purple derby.
