Last Saturday I filled in as keyboard player for a classic rock band at a house party.
Here are the songs we played along with my performance notes:
We played "Sympathy for the Devil" from our "back pocket" list.
The party was lots of fun. It was held in a house in which a performance hall, complete with stage and PA system, had been built into the top floor. There were maybe 100 people, all of whom danced and cheered loudly as we played their favorite tunes.
I hadn't played in months, so it felt good to stretch out.
Although it was a last-minute call, and I had never played many of songs, I enjoy a challenge like this. It stretches me to perform my very best.
It didn't hurt that I came home with a cool $100 in my wallet!
I have made a New Years resolution that in 2007 I will play a lot more music.
