SPB: What is the largest crowd you have played to? Did you approach the set differently?
Camuglia: Well, I played a 3 song set at the 25 the Anniversary of Woodstock at the original site in Bethel, NY in 1994 to an estimated crowd of 70,000 people.
I don't know the exact number except I heard that 100,000 people had gathered there. And in the field, the day I sang it was full packed, so who knows? But it was fun and a great experience.
Since it was a hippie type scene I sang a peace song called “Let's Make Pizza” and also a song that I wrote about Woodstock, as well as a song called “Dance in The Rain” as it was getting ready to rain...and it did, just as I finished my set.
The crowd dispersed as I closed out my song and the next hour and a half we all took refuge as we waited out the rain storm before they started the music again.
