The bass player in my high school band had a thing for MIDI. By the time he was in 10th grade, he had sequenced over a hundred arrangements of Pachabel’s Canon in D on his Apple ||gs. When played through his Kurzweill synth, ZOMGs.
Huey Lewis and The News, backed by the Tower of Power horn section, was the first concert I ever saw, way the hell back in ’86. And still one of the best.
