I have been lucky enough to receive two gifts of original works of art at my shows this year. One from the talented James Fooncia and one from an amateur artist with little ribbons in her hair.
Normally if I played a gig and only two people showed up, I'd be feeling kinda down but, in this case it was planned that way.
Are you married? Do you remember how fast your wedding reception went by? Do you remember even tasting the food?
Well this guy had a great idea. For him and his wife's wedding anniversary, he surprised her by renting out the same reception hall and hiring the same caterer to make the same meal for just the two of them + one.. ME! I was hired to play slow romantic instrumentals for two hours including their song they danced to, "Come Away With Me". How awesome is that!
Before they arrived, I snapped this shot as I finished setting up (in the background) and before the sun went down.
