Posted:I have been booked to perform this coming Weds night.....for a baby shower!

The woman who hired me saw me do a exhibition performance and called me straight away for this party she is planning. We went to the restaraunt where I will be performing and the owner is thrilled about it all, trusting me so implicitly he didn't want to see the safety write-ups I brought.

The woman who hired me is hoping that maybe my show will induce labor!

Hmm...and I thought performing at a wedding was weird! This takes it!

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

Can miles truly separate us from friends? If we want to be with someone we love aren't we already there? If there is someone willing to show, and there is someone willing to see; magic happens. This is whem humans are alive. This is when the wingless fly.

That was the most not-right image I have had in my head in a long time! Funny as hell, but still not right.

Posted:nice use of what's available, but I agree a little disturbing. I don't know exactly what type of fire work you are doing, but I think that some of the gorillaz tracks are a little calmer. I also like rusted root, which would be a kinda general happy friendly music. hope maybe that will help since Durbs didn't.

Posted:Thanks Molly.
In the absence of help (thanks guys! )
I decided to choose between Loreena, Enya (Orinoco Flow to be exact) and Blackmore's Night.
Rusted Root is a nice thought. Hadn't thought of them in years, thanks for that.
Hmmmm *looking around at boxes*, now where did I leave that tape????

Ok, it's cheesy, it's rap, and it's by a man, but thematically appropriate.

Posted:It went very well. We ended up going with a Celtic Moods CD. Pele spun very well (even with her ankle still feeling sore) and the audience was great. Aplause at the end and everything.

The party came out of the restaraunt and watched. The guest of honor was very surprised but smiled through the whole thing. The entire staff stopped working and they all went outside to watch too. Only the owner and the party organizer knew that this entertainment was going to be there so actually everyone was surprised.
Then they invited us in and we all chatted for about an hour. Pele and I felt a little out of place as we weren't really dressed for a nice restaraunt like this. It was one of those places where the food is prepared like artwork. It was delicious though. Oh, they even delivered the desserts with flames (shredded coconut.)

All in all, a really good performance night. If only they all could be that good.

Posted:Thanks, PWB! Glad it went well. Sounds like fun.

And an artsy-phartsy restaurant like that needs a bit of fire spinnin' every now and then, methinks.

Hope that helps.
Also you still have an unread message, look in your profile.


The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.-- Ken Kesey

Thanks PWB for answering, and to everyone else for asking. The other thing I wanted to mention was the fire chief. The fire hall was across the street. He brought his wife and some lawn chairs and sat there. He asked if there was anything I needed a few times and was as nice and pleasant as could be. (Then again, I headed him off at the pass by telling him everything he could've asked me about in advance).
It was really great and the restaraunt told us to come back any time we wanted, fire welcome!

It was renewing for me. I was thinking of retirement, but that changed my mind. It was sooooo fun! Makes all those club/bar shows worht it!

And, by the looks of the mother to be...she wished the labor had been induced! Poor woman!

There are many, many reasons I am glad that I am a man, and this is one of them. I couldn't do it.
