Gig #6 D & D’s Barbeque

5/21/11   Gig #6

D & D’s Barbeque, Grand Ledge MI
WOW – I don’t know how else to start. Thoughtfulness and pure kindness seemed to be the theme of the evening.

This gig was a party at some friend’s house. The deck was all decked-out with a canopy, white linen table cloths, party lighting and great people. Before the gig, everybody was mingling, having a few hors d’oeuvres and drinks. So, I’m chatting, talking like I always do, when this gentlemen comes out of the house thru the sliding glass door wearing a green T-shirt that says tim52gigs on it.

What the hell? Then someone else cames out, and then another and another until everybody at the party was wearing a tims52gigs T-shirt. I WAS BLOWN AWAY! They gave me one too. Really, I was blown away. Next I’m thinking “how am I going to live up this” man the pressures on now. We had dinner then I was up.

I retrieved my equipment from the car and started to set up. A few people suggested that I try playing and singing unplugged. I did and before I could finish the first song, Dave was plugging in an extension cord so I could power up. I sang 9 or 10 songs while most everybody politely listened and watched (too kind) which of course kept the pressure on, but that was all right. After all, that is part of the reason for tims52gigs in the first place. I took a break and returned after about 20 minutes. As you will see under the Video Gallery/Gig #6 videos tab, everybody started to loosen up, including me. I made mistakes, recovered, made a few quick one liners and had a great time. I sang at least 14-15 more songs then sat down with the group and played unplugged for a while (see” Unplugged, Your Mamma Don’t Dance under the Video’s Gallery tab/ Gig #6 to watch)

I deeply appreciate the opportunity to perform at this venue (my friends Dave and Deb). My wife and friends are the best. All of your kindness cherished.

My buddy Tom couldn’t make this one, so my homie Harv did the work– thanks for all the video’s and pictures bud, I appreciate it.
Looking forward to the next one,
Tim
