Hey everybody.... I've got a gig...
OK, so it isn't Glastonbury, but it's a good thing and I'm delighted to have been asked to perform.
I took my daughter to her friend's birthday party and the kids were doing all the usual manic kid stuff while wife and I stood in the kitchen with the other mums talking about this and that.
It was getting near the end of the party and the birthday boy's mum was wondering how she was going to get the kids settled down from all the excitement when I remembered that Cat (my six string acoustic) was in the back of my car.
I fetched Cat from the car and got the kids sat down while I played some songs I know. It was kinda cute getting one half of the group to sing one part while the other side sang the second part... that sort of stuff. I finished with Puff The Magic Dragon, which they all loved.
One of the other mums there asked me to come along and play at her daughter's birthday party in a few weeks time.
Like.... wow..... I'm being booked to play to an audience.. How good is that..???
Ok,so none of them are over seven years old but that don't matter.
Now... I suppose I have to look up the tabs for a dozen children's songs and learn them off by heart in time.
I'm looking forward to it.
