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!
Oh my, it’s been a super fun 4 years, I’ve met so many cool folks and we’ve had thousands of laughs, but my time singing at Bernard’s happy hour on Wednesdays is soon ending. My last show will be Wednesday May 30.
I really dragged my heels on making this decision, I’ve been so proud of what I accomplished there and I’m going to miss it muchly. Wednesdays used to be a pretty dead day at Bernard’s and over time we built it up to always have a superb audience every week, I could always count on it as a mood enhancement.
Please join me for my last two shows, come say goodbye and find out what I’ll be up to next!
Loudmotor still performs there on the first Friday of every month, enjoy!
My weekly Wednesday happy hour shows have been so successful and fun, even with the sunny weather I’m glad folks still want to hang out in the dark basement with cheap booze and live music for a while. Please join us at Bernard’s, 315 Seneca, 5-7PM, good times guaranteed.
The final “Presidential” debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is this evening, so we’re going to split my happy hour show at Bernard’s in two, I’ll start music at 5PM, and then we’ll stop and turn on the debate and watch the country continue to swirl down the toilet at 6PM. Luckily there will be good people to hang out with and tasty inexpensive beverages.
Please join us, we’ll make it a fun evening!
Our Wednesday happy hour show at Bernard’s has become such a fun part of the week, sometimes we refer to it as our mini-Friday. Join us today from 5-7PM for some live tunes and cheap booze and a whole bunch of cool folks.
