I drove up to Cedar Park tonight to play a solo show. I was a little nervous when I arrived because there weren’t many people there, but by the time I started to play at 8:30p, the crown started filing in! I had lots of good requests, and lots of great compliments. Heather will be with me when we return to Rockin J this Saturday!
We performed our Dueling Pianos show in Lubbock, Texas, tonight for a charity, raising money for the West Texas Children’s Chorus. They were connected through Texas Tech, so there were lots of faculty and sponsors there to support the choir. Heather and I had a great time! We helped a few people, celebrate their birthdays, one of which was a gentleman who had played drums with some of Buddy Holly‘s band mates, and he was a delight to talk to. As we ended our show, we received a standing ovation from the crowd, and many people came up to tell us how much they enjoyed what we do. It was so great to hear that from a room full of musicians. Now begins the 6 1/2 hour long drive home!
What a day! I started off by repairing a keyboard for Moonshine & Ale. Then, I made my way to discount tire to pick up a spare for Heather. I swung through the Panera drive-through for some lunch for everyone at my house, and headed home. A friend of mine, bassist Jeremiah Sawyer, asked if he could come record a song for his mother’s funeral, which is happening tomorrow, so I was glad to help him out by doing a quick recording session. Although the reason was sad, it was nice to see him again. I then got ready for our show in Cedar Park, Texas, which is where I met up with my partner Heather to take requests from the crowd for three hours! We finished up, packed quickly, and just got in the car to head to our next show in Lubbock. There’s never a dull moment.
Heather and I were so glad to share the stage again tonight with Pancho! He’s always fun to perform with. Tonight was busy, but everyone was more relaxed than usual, which made the night easier. Live Band Karaoke is always entertaining!
We performed our dueling pianos show tonight in San Marcos, TX, for the good people at Kissing Tree! Heather and I played a solid 3-hour show of requests like “Pink Houses”, “Dancing Queen”, “Pride (In The Name Of Love)” and “Uptown Funk”, plus so many more. We even had a dance-off to “Baby Got Back”! It was a fun show.
