Apparently, this is what I look like standing on your table. Thanks to Neil Smart for the pic.
Yeah, so I was playing an outdoor set last weekend. Although it’s January, we are enjoying some really warm weather, and it was a beautiful day on Sunday. It was also the weekend of the Upstream Songwriter’s Retreat in Estes Park. As a part of that retreat we have a day of performance in Lyons for all the songwriters. There were performance all over town.
I finished the day at Mainstage– an awesome pizza/music place here in town. In the warm weather we played out in the beer garden- but we didn’t have any kind of PA. No singer really likes to do that- luckily, I’m really loud, so I was doing fine for about 2/3ds of the set. I played my loudest rowdiest songs. But that’s a lot of work on the voice, and I knew I needed to back off a bit- however, the patio we were on was pretty far back from the people in the beer garden- which is no big deal when you have a PA helping you out.
I had a few friends in the crowd and they yelled come closer- so I did.
I’m definitely adding table dances to the repertoire from now on.
Earlier in the day I got to share a song with my friend Rebecca Jonas from the All Through The Night Band. I really love the cello on this song. Maybe we’ll put a cello on regular rotation?
And that was the close of January!
On To February Stuff…
