...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.
