Please Pleaserock Me played a show at Smith's Olde Bar last night to a pretty full room. Pretty good gig!
We had Rob Opitz joining us on trumpet. Excellent work and good hang with somebody I've known back from the William Noll days fifteen years ago.
We debuted a couple of songs, my favorite being George Harrison's What is Life--a great song from a great album. It makes me wonder why it took us so long to add this one!
I got to play the rhodes part at the beginning of Band on the Run, but the amp wasn't loud enough and I didn't hear anything I played. I'm hoping my guesses were all lucky! I made it back to the horn section, picked up my tenor and adjusted the microphone with just enough time to see that I was supposed to play bari! I managed the switch just in time.
I made a quick load out after the gig--around 10 minutes. It's good to be a horn player!
Next week will be a biggie for church gigs--four services on Sunday, three on Tuesday, and one on Wednesday. Tis the season!
