Music for the elders
Last night I played for a Holiday Dance where many of the guests were in theiir seventies and up. I think there were a few in their nineties. When we were kids first getting into music we thought of rock stars as guys who were about ten or fifteen years older than us playing the music we thought was cool. We didn't think of musicians as people who played for people older than they. Yet as a professional musician you end up playing in all kinds of situations that you may not have expected. There I was last night at an exclusive East Side Ladies club, playing with a band leader who has been in the clubdate business for longer than I've been alive. I was the youngest musician on the stand and probably younger than most of the crowd. It was kind of a glimpse into another era. It's actually quite cool that htese people still dance and party.
Tonight I'll be somewhere else in the city playing for people around my age doing classic rock tunes. What a long strange trip it's been!
