The Erotic Web Of Sound [Audience Camera]

Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band
Kimo's San Francisco, California
August 8, 2003

It was the first time I introduced much more explicit eroticism into the meat of the performance.  Also I had the cameraman nude moving onstage, bringing you extremely intimate with the rubbing aroused melting bodies.  So much so that you feel like you are within the erotic action!
