This week I want to know what makes you so wonderfully weird…
This weeks Tea and Talk is a 5×5 of my day….Enjoy!
Tuesday Tea and Talk is a 5×5 of my day. With a special guest appearance from FISHY!! #ilovemygoldfish #tea #talk #5×5
Over the past month or so, I’ve been lucky enough to perform in a variety of venues in the North East (which is TOTALLY AWESOME!!). It’s been incredible meeting so many new people and sharing my music. I’ve been in a variety of performance environments in a short amount of time- from full concert type shows where the audience is there strictly to listen to the music – to sports bars where the 60″ flat screen TV is king of the jungle and I’m merely a tick on the back of a flea – I’ve lived these venues (and everything in between) in the last 45 days. And to be frank, it’s hard going from one to the next…one night you’re a rockstar and the next you feel like no one would notice if you set the keyboard on fire and ran a lap around the bar naked. Seriously! Go ahead and laugh, but it’s true. And it’s tough not to get discouraged when you’re literally singing your heart out while some drunken girl is twirling around on her even drunker boyfriend’s shoulders three inches from your face, dangerously close to falling on you and your instrument. But this is the truth of some venues…and it is what makes us musicians… Frustrated. Resilient. Experienced. Seasoned. Determined. I’ve literally said to the band “I am going to get these people to engage with us …it is going to happen. We are going to make it happen…”
Playing these different concert types in succession has truly been a blessing in disguise…I’ve learned a lot about my listeners and about my own performance style. I’ve learned that I’m really good at handling the guy who yells “Freee Biiiiiird” and that I’m not fazed by ridiculous raucous behavior…I’m fairly certain at this point I could play through a tornado without missing a beat. I’ve learned that I like to have my side table for concert style shows and never want to perform without a monitor…ever. And most importantly I’ve learned that my listeners are always there, even if I can’t see them right away, and that they truly appreciate what I do. And that is what it’s all about.
Please enjoy this highlight reel from Cafe Veritas in Rochester, NY where I opened for Tracy Grammer.
