Yes, indeed. As you can see, I’m on the right in the pictures, but in real life, I’m on the left. Two sides. Two basses. Two stages. Two legs. Two feet, etc., etc.,
Lover Gurl hit the stage outside on the patio @ Riot Room, and I was nervous. I’m always nervous about shows because I have a vivid recollection of a show I put together when I was a teenager in Kalamazoo– no one except a few friends and my mom and dad showed up. The bar owner was furious. He said he thought we had a following of people who could drink and spend money at his bar. I didn’t know what I was doing, I just wanted to play a show and asked if my band could play. Because of that, I assume a bad reaction is right around the corner when I go out to play. It’s a shock to me when there isn’t a bad reaction, and people dig something I’m a part of.
The next day, I put on my classical hat and performed with my friend Bridget at Vinyl Renaissance for their Classical Sunday event. They sell classical records at a discount on the 2nd Sunday of every month and it’s up to us to tell the world about it! I performed works by Bloch, Mozart, Lennon & McCartney, as well as classics by Harrison. Although, not as prolific as Lennon or McCartney, several of Harrison’s works have made it into the classical repertory and stand as giants of the genre in their own right.
Afterward, I fell into a deep sleep for 40 days and 40 nights.
Awake again, the days are shorter and everything smells like Autumn.
