So, Sunday night at Tonic Dundee was my eleventh solo appearance, and possibly the best yet! Not since my lowly debut at the Underground 17 months previously have I strung together 10 songs on-stage. (Full gig history here)
And all this while recovering from a 10km run (fancy sponsoring?) and an inflamed throat… aw well, it helped lend a husky sound to the bar-room drawl…
The bar was pretty well full – and they seemed to enjoy the music… it takes guts to sing your songs in a room full of drinkers, but there was plenty of smiles and applause, so I’m happy. I heard the comment from a punter that it’s nice to hear a piano for a change.
After my set I sold a couple of CDs and got talking to some guys in the audience who enjoyed the music… may have a useful contact and some developments there: watch this space…
Finlay and Nicky both appeared on the bill too: playing acoustic guitar and singing a range of familiar songs. Keith + James were up later, and I had a chin-wag, though I couldn’t stay long enough to hear them – though going on previous performances they would have done a good job of pleasing the crowd.
Hoped to have some video footage of the evening, but none due to technical difficulties: you’ll just have to get out and see me live!!
Speaking of which, there should be one or two more gigs coming soon: see you there.
