These are strange days my friends. Everyone is calling for "social distancing", but as recently as yesterday, all of my gigs have been full, sold-out, or well-attended. But, that's about to change. Today the president called to a limit of 10 people for social gatherings. Bars, restaurants, and everyone in the hospitality industry, as well as the entertainment industry is scrambling to deal with having their world turned upside down.
In the last two days, my vacation has been cancelled, concerts, gigs, even my dentist appt has been cancelled or post-poned. I am wondering if my teaching job will change completely to an on-line one, and I wonder if I will get to see the beautiful faces of my students again this year. You can't make this stuff up.
Please continue to support live music, bars and restaurants. I have talented musical friends playing gigs on social media now for tips, restaurants are turning to carry-out options, do what you can to support them. These are some of the best people I know, and you that support us, we consider you family.
Take care and be safe!
