80s in Athens
Yacht Rock played a private gig for software developers in Athens last night. It was 80s themed, so we pulled all of our Reagan Rock stuff out for them.
We were on a super tiny stage. From my spot, my back was against the wall (literally!) and the microphone clipped on the bell of my horn kept hitting my keyboard. Mark Cobb's right side crash hung over the top of my other keyboard--I think that it was probably closer to me than him. All of that being said, the volume wasn't too bad, though the bass was awfully loud.
The gig was really fun. I don't know if the crowd was into it, but I enjoyed playing some different tunes. We also hit some stuff beyond the realm of Reagan Rock--just stuff that the Y.O.U. guys used to play as covers. I got off a really good alto solo on Talking In Your Sleep--wish I'd recorded that, but I wasn't thinking I was going to play anything on it at all!
