Hi,

My name is Jacque and I am the pregnant one with my sweater pulled up and my husband Evan's hand on my stomach feeling our daughter Rakesha kicking and moving around like crazy because of the loud music. Great music I must say, I believe it was Jethro Tull playing at the time if I remember right but I am older now so I am not real sure.I just know she was either rocking out cuz she liked the music or was having a fit because it was too loud. We had to leave the front area because I was getting sick from all of her activity, I'm sorry I don't have any pictures I just wanted to tell you who we were. Oh and we were from the U.S. - from Santa Barbara California at the time. My daughter is 36yrs . She was born in Dublin Ireland Dec.27th 1970 she is now 36yrs old and lives in San Luis Obispo Ca. Thank you for taking that picture of us I haven't seen it since the 70's. My friend found it online and sent it to me.

Thanks

Jacquelyn Hall
