Different Kinds of Gigs

Updated: Jun 28, 2020

I've been performing at a wonky pace recently. I'll have stretches where I'll play four out of five days, then go two or three weeks without a solo show. I'm hosting my open mic at O'Toole's every week though, and that keeps me plenty busy. We're doing a Live Music Showcase this month. Three weeks of qualifying rounds, having people play 15-minute sets. We have scorecards for patrons to use, and the owner ultimately decides the top two who will play in the finale on July 29. The winner gets $250, some recording studio time, and we have other prizes involved. It's gone great so far, a lot of fun.

Last night, I played a V.F.W. Post in Richmond, IN. I've never traveled that far to play before. It was a mostly older crowd, but that was okay, because my set list was perfect for them. I had a lot of people dancing, making requests, and we all had a good time. Today, I'm playing at the retirement community that I've been at several times. It's a more subdued group of people, but still very rewarding.
