There’s this one regular who gives me cards and checks for tips at the gig. I’m fairly sure this person is not rich and lives on a fixed income. The tips are generous. Very Generous. Having this kind of support is so unusual and surprising. The Christmas show was a longtime desire of mine to do. Just playing the tunes with the band and singing the songs was fulfilling. But the response from the people and this special supporter made me think about how I don’t really understand how this musical and social experiment wrapped up as a dance band on once-a-month Wednesdays affects people. I know how it affects me. Stage fright, Rehearsals, Planning! I breathe and have feelings because I have to breathe to sing. It’s unavoidable. I never thought I had an effect on others because of the music. Perhaps I’m not as alone on this musical path as I often feel I am.
