It was a decent performance, the crowd was withdrawn, but not rude.
Open Mic Night
As usual, I did the open mic last night. Unusually, there was a good and enthusiastic crowd, probably the best I’ve ever had. I happened to be in fine voice last night too, which helped. A good time was had by all.
I was quite pleased with my performance and the response. It’s reassuring to hear yourself through the monitors. I did “Raining Here This Morning”, “Red Clay Halo”, “Walkin’ Cane”, and “Blackjack County Chain”. I could have slowed them all down a tad, but on the whole, I’m pretty happy. A good first real open mic night.
Last night I attended the Mulligans Acoustic Thursdays event. While not really geared for me (I like the strict structure and announced keys of bluegrass) it wasn’t bad. I basically played with Matt Greenia and various members of the Sour Mash band for a few hours. While I am not a fan of the jam band sound, they do actually get up and play out, which is nice. I did figure out Me and Bobby McGee for this girl from the crowd to sing.
