Well . . . I've done a lot of show-type music. My wife and I used to have a cabaret act, known as The Act
. . . :imbar . . .we did music/comedy, dinner theater. Done full-time cruiseship gigs as a "lounge musician". Amy and I currently own a small production company and produce musical/comedy based shows and albums.
I used to be in a rock band playing southern rock type music. That was the last "human-bodied" band I was in. We were hot!!! I played keyboard. The guitarist was probably the best around the area. . . a real talent, he was!!!
When ever we do our live show, now, it's canned music with my wife and two other partners singing/performing. I'm the soundman who pushes the button to make the music go! (It's also my music, my recording, etc . . . I do alot of "behind the scene stuff. . .) Someday, when we make tons of money (hopefully!!!), we'll hire live musicians. Like I said, there's nothing like playing with live musicians!!!
With regards to talking via "keyboard and internet", one of the plus-sides is the minimal amount of social skills needed. Only me and God knows the amount of times I've burped and farted while typing to you guys here at "Allnurses.com"!!!! Yep!!! I could have just let one go now . . . and you never even knew!!!
Ahhhhhhhhhhh. . . . Cyber Friendship!
P. S. Shygirl . . . thanks for the cyber hug! One back at you!
I sure was in a pondering mood last evening.
