Uh, that was a trip. After getting through the preliminary round with a third place finish, we started out the semis with a show in Escondido, CA. It’s all palm trees down there! Then we had a show in Sacramento the next day. Not my best stuff but I pushed through the anxiety and had stronger shows in Livermore and Santa Rosa.
It was an amazing experience and would do it again. Well, I guess it’s back to reality and begging for 2.5 minutes of stage time at open mics.
Special thanks to Peter Greyy (Get well soon!), Pat Burtscher, John Fox, Roger Lizoala, for making it a great event! Also, Santa Rosa has the smartest and best looking people in the world.
