Last Night At Bernard’s Was Good

Last night at Bernard’s was good. And good is the new amazing. I remember my first night there, I walked up to the door and almost walked away thinking that they wouldn’t want to hear me. I’m glad I decided to go in anyway. Over the next four years we had so many laughs and discussions and arguments and singalongs. It is difficult to measure how rewarding it is to hear people singing along to my songs. For my final show, I got nice presents, people cried, and lots of people dropped in who I hadn’t seen in a while. Last night was good. I’m really proud of what the show had became, I chose Wednesdays when I started because it was typically a super slow day and I wanted to prove to myself that with some live music it could be built up into something wonderfully human. There was some bad though too. The pay was pathetic (except the tips, thank you!!!). I never got a “thank you” or even any acknowledgment from the manager, or almost any interaction at all, and he didn’t even show up on my last day. But I wasn’t there for him anyway. I kept doing that show for so long because the audience was super special. Also, the bartenders were some of the best of I’ve worked with. I’m glad a bunch of regulars stuck around after the show and we got a couple of photos, although I know I’ll have hundreds of memories to enjoy for the rest of my days anyway. Well, this post is long enough, I just really wanted to say thank you to all the folks who would hang out with us on Bernard’s on Wednesdays, you really made it a special time and place to be. I have lots of shows around the Pacific Northwest, let’s hang out soon!
