So, how many of us had a gig on the weekend associated with St Patrick's Day, playing either your normal music or doing something more Irish for the occasion? Did you play acoustic or electric? We played three gigs - two on Saturday and one on Sunday. By the end of Sunday we were wiped, especially since we had to provide sound for Saturday night and Sunday's gigs. Saturday afternoon's was the easiest, since it was a multi-band festival so we just showed up with instruments (plus my pedal board and small amp) - someone else was running sound. We played an energetic selection of our usual blend of Irish/Celtic stuff, but I got to let my rock'n'roll side out for a big stroll, adding dirt to the pub songs that I might normally play on an acoustic at our usual haunts. Everything was outside (under some modicum of cover), and thankfully the weather held up! For those local to central Florida, we played the Crooked Can Celtic Fest Saturday afternoon (effectively opening up for the headliner), then played the Sanford St Paddy's Day Street Festival at Wops Hops Brewing, and then on Sunday we played the Yalaha Bootlegging Company (they make "commercial moonshine") - their event was called "ShineFest". @bodia , thanks for letting me acquire your P245SH - it rocked over the weekend! You might not have bonded with it, but I think I have now! I used it anytime I wasn't on Mandolin, basically, so about half of my playing time. We are already booked to return next year for St Pat's at one of the locales (the St night gig at Wops Hops), and will return to Yalaha for next year's ShineFest. And of course, we'll play these spots throughout the year as "normal" gigs. Who else rocked the weekend?!
