    Default First gig since September!

    Finally got to play a gig this weekend for the first time since last September. Our Memorial Weekend gig got cancelled, so our first gig was this past Saturday. We were at a marina, a great spot with picturesque sunsets and the weather was perfect. Everyone must have been dying to get out because we had a huge crowd. We were a little rusty, nothing that the audience would notice, and our mix was a bit unbalanced, but overall it went well, the crowd loved it and wanted 3 encores. The owners of the place love us too, it was our 6th time playing there, and we have 2 more dates booked there this summer. Our cancelled gig was rescheduled for this coming Saturday at another waterfront place which we haven't played at before. It will be interesting to see how it goes - 2 in a row after 9 months off. The weather forecast is good so far but we chipped in and bought a commercial grade 10x20' tent just in case.

    Can anyone give a clear definition as to what "normal" is?
    YOU MESS WITH THE DEVIL YOU KNOW.

    YOU DON'T MESS WITH THE DEVIL YOU DON'T KNOW.

    VAE VICTIS

    ONCE YOU HIT A CERTAIN AGE, YOU BECOME PERMANENTLY UNIMPRESSED BY A LOT OF CRAP.

    I HIT THAT AGE 20 YEARS AGO.

    Perhaps "new normal" is where we are.
