Load-in Load-out

We had a really fun gig today.  We played at an assisted living facility in Birmingham.  We were a little anxious going, would they like our songs, would we connect?  They were delightful.
We connected, they loved our music and were telling the director of the facility to bring us back before we left.

As our friend Fred says, if you get a gig where all you have to do is show up and play, life is good.  But most of our gigs are not that way, this morning there was the load in ( sound system, guitars,etc)
in the vehicle.  Then get to the gig, load out, set equipment up, then perform, then tear down system and load again, drive home and unload vehicle.  You have to love this stuff, because it is hard work.

Time tonight for a long soak in epsom salts.

Hope your Saturday has been as good as ours.  Tomorrow is Sunday, be kind, spread joy.


  1. I'm glad you had a great time at the assisted living facility. I'm sure they really appreciated the live music. It probably brightened up their day. An epsom salt bath sounds relaxing.

  2. My Aunt Happy is in an assisted living facility and let me tell you, they love having people come in to entertain them. Life gets pretty boring and having good music that makes their lives happier is such a wonderful thing you do. We were with her at a big party her complex throws every year and the entertainment was a cowboy singer and his horse. Yep. They allowed the horse in the dining room with us as we ate our chuckwagon dinner. Took him some time to set up and take down. The old and young loved it.
