Thread Name: so how did your St. Pats Day gig go?
Subject: RE: so how did your St. Pats Day gig go?
Real good! Did four hours dinner music of mostly Irish/celtoid tunes (and lots of swing tunes 'cause we like'em) with the fiddle/guitar duo. Then a button accordian player we had never met before joined us and as a trio we banged out more tunes. Then a friend from my other band joined us on vocals and drum for the balance of the night...seven hours in total for the fiddler and me. The pub/bistro that hired us was gracious and generous with food, drink, and payment, the place was full all evening, and we got at least one gig referral from the effort.
Mind you, I was wasted most of the next day. Seems I don't have as much jam as I did 20 years ago!
