I agree with DonM. about them.

Sure, to me, they'd be a bit of a fish out of water with senior audiences, but if that's the bulk of work in the area, then they gotta take what's there. And, as you say, Gary, they are booked.

They may not be able, nor want, to up stakes and move somewhere else, so good luck to them.

Guys like us like to do the familiar stuff and there's always a 'demand' for it - y'know, give 'em what they want and all that. But it's not everyone's chosen path, and I kinda have a sneaking admiration for those who write and perform their own stuff.

In reality, most of the audiences here are in the senior category, 50 to 80 years of age is the average. And, if you look at their booking calendar, most are not booked more than one time at a single location during the season. The one that I posted a link for is based out of Ohio, so I guess they're supplementing their vacation income with some jobs in the sunny south.

Last night, the winds howled from the east, temperatures dropped into the low 60s and it was really cold at the marina Tiki Hut. Had a small audience, but this will quickly change with an improvement in the weather.

He must be doing something right. He's popular with the younger crowd. He's has a lot of gigs in six or seven states. The video is an amateur video shot off- the-cuff in a living room.

Awesome night tonight. I performed from 6 till 9 p.m. at Cabana Breezes, there were about 75 people there, many stayed after finishing dinner and happy hour, the staff loved the music and so did the audience. Ironically, I was asked by a very young lady behind the bar to play some Sinatra songs, which I did, and a 12-year old boy asked for Cats In The Cradle. I was floored when the kid asked for that song, which I had not performed in many years. I fired up and did it, missed a few chords early on, but into the second verse I nailed it. His mother came up and put a 10 in the tip pitcher and thanked me.

Friday will be the big challenge at the Hyatt, but I think I can wow them there as well.

Another fun day in Paradise,

Gary cool

Gary, a Superbowl commercial featured Cat's in the Cradle. That's why it is being requested.

Thanks Don, I was wondering why some young kid was asking for that particular song.

It was to dark to shoot the vids last night - the job was outdoors. I'll try to get some on Friday night.
