Strange day......last Thursday, a friend's mom called Rick and I ask us to play at a function today. Her boss had requested that she get in touch with us, it was definitely community service, but that was ok. We had the morning open, and we love helping out when we can.
We had met our friend's boss a few times during the last several years, at a party, social functions, and she once interviewed me for a job. When we arrived today, there was no sign of any acknowledgement that she had ever met us.......interesting. I did not push it, I just thought well, strange. She kept forgetting our names, weird.
It was an in service event, not sure why they asked us to perform........no stage, no biggie, or pa, we can deal.
We did several motivational songs that we had written, but we were playing while vendors presented their wares. I had the sensation of what it would be like if we played a children's birthday party.
We have played some strange gigs........a llama convention comes to mind, immediately. But this, I think was the one that truly didn't make sense. The boss, kept calling us the band........maybe when she had our friend call us, she had us confused with someone else......even our trio, is not really a band. We are acoustic, folk
Years ago, we would sometimes play smoky bars........but even those, people listened. It was like being in the twilight zone for musicians, wondering why, where, what, how today. We gave it all we had, but we both were shaking our heads when left there today........what just happened?????? Strange day in music land.
