2017-108-Summer Concert

Summer Concert

Hello friend,

I’ve not been going down to the Thursday band night for most of the year but I’d promised to play guitar on some songs for the concert. I didn’t really have to learn anything: “just give me the key.”

The guys did a really good job on pretty much all of the numbers. Good sound and tight. Very impressive. The key is to pick songs that are easy but sound great with a lot of musicians.

Unfortunately, the numbers were down again. There were a lot of guys who signed up to come down but a big drop off. It didn’t help that there was an incident on B wing just before we were due to go to the venue (see next blog). This pushed back the start time by about 10-15 minutes.

If the prison choir hadn’t been there it really would have been empty. Because I’ve been working with them for the rock opera, I joined in on their 2 numbers. I had to go from singing bass on the first number to high falsetto for the second. Still, it was fun.

Be happy, be safe.
