I have you all to thank for my first real gig!!
« on: October 03, 2018, 05:26:43 PM »
I was called yesterday by the owner of the local restaurant / bar / music hall where I play the open mics and open jams.  She books live music every week and offered me a spot next month.  I considered not accepting because I don't know a huge number of covers and don't really want to be a live jukebox in the corner.  However, she told me she specifically wanted me to play my originals and provide background on how I came up with them.  Apparently, that is her favorite part of open mic night!

The thing is, most of those songs started as ODC challenges here.

So allow me to buy you all a virtual beer and brat as a way to say thank you for getting me my first gig.  :D

Thanks everyone!

Slight change of plans. Since I wasn't going to be paid much, I decided to change this from a regular gig to a fundraiser for the local food bank.  The venue owner agreed to support this in their advertising and I can be much more comfortable asking for donations, rather than tips. Plus, more folks are likely to come to a fundraiser that has music than just my performance. I think it will be a win-win-win!
