This week’s post will be brief, it is Christmas Eve after all and the elves need a hand.
Last night’s show at Relish was good fun, and a great privilege to play on what turned out to be the 6th anniversary of New Music Night. I want to thank family and friends who came out. It’s always heartening to see friendly faces in the audience. As a side note, the show provided worthwhile enlightenment re: knowing one’s limits. I’m not sure if this will stop me for always trying to do more each time I play, but it may inform me in how far to push. Overall, I’m still quite happy with the results; the band—NeMo on bass and brand-new-to-the-job Kimio Oki on drums—did a masterful job working off the charts. We got to hear NeMo’s brand new BSX Allegro upright bass too, so bonus!
Thanks in particular to Relish’s Joanne Clayton, for her unwavering support of live music, which has brought about such a positive change in my life, and for which I am forever grateful. Thanks as well to the staff who are always happy to hear the music and make us feel so welcome. I hope we can do it again in 2018!
So to veryone who reads this post, Merry Christmas and all the best for the Holidays!
P.S. Please note that the ABC Songwriter’s Circle is on a break, and back on January 16, 2018!
