Right Up Here
When you play outdoor gigs, you never know where you might end up playing. Yesterday Peak City Sound was booked to play at a PGA tournament at a very nice local country club. Sweet. But we ended up playing on a huge balcony way above the audience, who were milling around a bunch of food trucks. First, most people were there to see the pro golfers, not a band. Second, it’s hard to compete with food, especially if it comes out of a truck. But being 15 feet above everyone is just a bad idea for a band. I knew right away we would just be background music. No problem. Background music is a good thing. And since we were so high up, I pretended we were doing a rooftop gig at Apple Corps headquarters in London in 1969. I even started talking with an British accent. Which is really nothing new for our band. Our keyboard player is actually from England. Tea anyone?
