the music...

...was fantastic. I had a great time, and everything just flowed. No major screw-ups, no times when I completely lost it, we were just there.

I was intimidated by the set list at first, seeing this huge list of songs that we supposedly knew how to play. But one by one we proved we could actually play them, and two 45-minute sets went by very quickly. I should have thought to write the set list here. Fred, if you could email it... ;) I'm sure my many fans would appreciate it. (Fame has surely not gone to my head here!)

The venue was a little restaurant/tavern, very out-of-the way but well-attended. The audience was a late dinner crowd, with a few people who actually appreciated the music. Very non-intimidating.

I only wish my voice was used to this, as well as the fingertips on my left hand. Both are a little rough right now, but will get better with practice.

My pay was five dollars in tips, a pint of Summit Extra Pale Ale and a Two Hearted Ale. I could not ask for more.

Well, I can't offer you anything as exciting as the above, Deb, but congrats on a great gig!

Now how did that spam get through? I'd rather hear your singing.

Five bucks and two free beers = a net profit of 7...

Glad it went well!

Yeah, those spammers must have found a way around word verification. *sigh* For those who missed out on the fun that I deleted, you'll just have to go searching for phone sex on your own. I'm not hosting free advertising here.

I'm sure, had a recording been made last night, I would be tearing it apart right now in my own self-critical way. But for now I'll hold on to the idea that we sounded pretty damn good for only three rehearsals!

Sounds like you were rockin'. I woke up and wondered how it went last night. It was great to hear about it before I head out into one of the only 3 sunny days of October. :) Hope you have a good weekend, Deb.
