Just so good.

20140404_202918Sometimes life affords you opportunities and it’s your job to hear the knocking.  Last night the opportunity to go and listen to Los Lobos presented itself and I answered the door.  While I am entrenched in this world of music  booking,los lobos shirt rehearsing, writing, scheduling, etc (Then spend the last two week in school learning a whole new position on the fire department).   You forget why you make music.  Then you go see a band perform with such fluidity and excellence that even when one member makes an unexpected change… they all jump back in line. It’s a reminder of why you do it.  It’s about the music and the joy and the shared experience of the audience and band.   Where  music makes you forget all the worries and problems and there is just the band and you.   It doesn’t have to be a big name band.  I go and see bands like Electric Dirt, Expo 76, Great Moments in Vinyl, etc.  It’s about excellence and happiness whether your on stage or in the audience. So thanks Los Lobos for that moment where life paused momentarily and I got to catch my breath.  Reality becomes a bit easier after a show like last night.20140404_225915
