Thread Name: so how did your St. Pats Day gig go?
Subject: RE: so how did your St. Pats Day gig go?
We performed for an AOH group in a school auditorium. The audience loved our Clancy Brothers/Dubliners type repertoire. There were close to 200 in attendance. A nice crowd - there was alcohol but nobody overdid it. We had a proper stage to set up on and the acoustics were great. We started at 6:00 and played till around 7:00, then had dinner with the guests (wonderful corned beef and cabbage, and homemade Irish soda bread) then played another set, then dancers from the local Irish dance school came on. And after that we played til around 10:00 pm, packed up and went home. It was great! Much nicer than playing at a bar!
