Today we travel from Charlotte to Charlottesville (followed tomorrow
by Charlottetown and then Charlotte City, haha, jk). I have enough
trouble knowing where I am from day to day when the city names aren't
The show last night went well. Michael mentioned it was the 4 year
anniversary of us working with the promoter Don Fox. It is amazing
to see how much the show has grown since the beginning. We often
played for a few hundred people back in the day. Last nights show
was for about 10,000.
But the REAL show did not take place on the stage last night folks.
It took place on the Ping Pong table after sound check. You see Ping
Pong started out as a leisurely pastime for the band and crew during
off hours. The table has now become a heated battlefield where only
the fiercest of competitors have a chance of coming away with their
dignity :) You must bring your A game or be destroyed. Yesterday I
lost to the "gentleman's game" of Mr. Bryan Lipps (he says he just
plays for the love of the sport, yeah right) but was victorious
against Mr. Buble in a close rally from behind victory. Sometimes
you really have to dig deep and find every last ounce of energy to
get the job done......
