Great to hear there's music starting to happen again. Nice set list too. I'd have been there all night. Heck, I'm so starved for live music I'd go see anything live. My band has been on the sidelines since Feb. 2.  We had 23 bookings wiped out this year and now we're heading back into lockdown. I'm starting to worry that if this doesn't stop soon most of the places we play will be gone. Two have already closed for good and another is really struggling. I pray they can hold on.

No Meshuggah? 😆

Cool Variety of the Classics.   Do you have to sing Carry on Wayward Son?  

I have the high part in the harmonies, if that's what you're referring to!

Gudonya, I'd be there to yell for "Stairway To Freebird" if I could.

I played a socially distanced "pasty white folk singer" thing last weekend in a heated tent, behind a drummer's sound shield.  Yeah, there's some crowd interaction for ya.  Right.  I'll be the guitarist in a small to middlin' jazz combo at a small club in the next county over that has managed to hang on so far.  We'll see if he's still there in a couple of weeks.  No rehearsal.  Here's the charts kid, play.  Scary as hell and I love it.  But those are the only two proper gigs I've had since, I think, May??

When I saw Green Eyed Lady I thought, “please tell me you have a Hammond player” but then I saw Carry On... and figured you probably do.

Actually he uses a Yamaha, a Korg and a Kerzweil "brain".  "Synths" today are amazingly accurate.  The violins and cellos are killer.  His Hammond sound is nearly perfect.  It has the "hair".  The MiniMoog sound is flat out perfect.  He does some ELP stuff and it's spot on.

Well, here I am at home.  The drummer's off again on again tendonitis in his elbow is back with a vengeance.  We had to cancel.  Sucks to get old.  So, December 19th is the next gig.  Ugh...

Damn disappointing! Feel for ya!!
