Happy Wednesday to everyone out there,
We had a small but hearty crew last night at the open mic at the Hearing Room. Rick Cande did a great job keeping things going and after the first round it sort of turned into a jam session which was a lot of fun. Don't forget that next Tuesday, December 6th I will be hosting the weekly open mic at the Hearing Room, so I hope to see a full house. All manners of performance are welcome, including poets. comics, musicians and magicians. Regardless of your level of expertise, you are welcome. Tuesday nights at the Hearing Room is a judgement free zone.
This Saturday, December 3rd, The Hugh McQueen Music Project takes the stage at the Hearing Room at 7:00 for an evening of originaltunes, select covers, and a special Tribute to the Music of Cat Stevens. Tickets are only five bucks so come support local live music. Plenty of free Parking, and remember the Hearing Room is a BYOBeverage venue, so just be discreet and legal. Doors open at six o'clock and the show starts at 7:00. There will be one intermission.
One last thing I wanted to share with you today on this rainy Wednesday, before I head back to rehearsal. Today when I realized it was the last day of the month, this incredible sense of euphoria just came over me like a wave. You see, for the thirty five years I spent working in the Retail Automobile Industry the last day of the month was hell on earth. I used to have Wednesday as my usual day off, which would have meant that today, being a Wednesday and the 30th, I would have had to work from open to closing just like so many of my friends that are still in the business are doing right now, So to all of my brothers and sisters at dealerships everywhere, I feel your pain.......Well, the truth is, I really don't feel it any more, but I do remember it well and I don't miss it at all. So hang in there, and just remember, there is Life after Retail, as long as you don't let it kill you first. Just sayin......
