and thanks to everyone who submitted tips on Tuscadero's thread asking for advice on how to play in public. They were quite helpful tonight.

wow congrats Deach! good stuff!

you know, ive roadied for many famous people (Testament, Manowar, Zandelle, Magus Beast, and more) so I think I beat Russ for the roadie job. whatchu think?

edit: as a failed harp player myself I must say, that guy was pretty good, he a member? reminds me of something Les Stroud would play along with

Never met the guy. He started playing during my second song and then for the encore he asked if he could do a duet with me.

Rockin the House Deach, did you invite the long arm of the law, or was he just there to keep away the groupies.

Fantastic! For someone claiming they were nervous you sound great. Wanna come to port townsend to Sirens for your next event? I'll buy you a jamacian jerk burger and a your choice of bevs. We can put you up after the hat guy who does beatbox poetry while doing interpretive dance. Seriously though, nice work.

So are you not counting your duet with Adelle at the UWC open mic?

Great job Deach! What a powerful sounding uke!

Super Duper 1st open mic performance! It was very enjoyable to listen to. Your voice is meant for the blues. Perhaps you've found your genre.

Thanks again everyone! I really appreciate the kind words and support!



I'll buy you a jamacian jerk burger and a your choice of bevs. .... Food and beer? Count me in!


So are you not counting your duet with Adelle at the UWC open mic?

Well, kinda. With Adelle, I didn't sing and it was a uke friendly crowd. This was my first solo open mic.

Was it just me, or was someone playin' bones in the front row? Way to go, Deach! Did you have to split the "take" with the harp player? :D

Maybe....someday....but just maybe! :eek:
