The Bedford Ave. L Train Stop

This evening Billy, Adrian (sax) and I did a little busking on the L train Bedford Ave. platform which is a convenient two stops from mine (Graham Ave.) When I got there Billy was already manning the spot and talking to Cassidy (uprightbassist) who just happened to be passing through and as we were getting ready to play Stephane (saxes) walked up and said hello. It felt like if I stayed there long enough everyone I played with would pass by.
The playing was fun and Williamsburgers are good listeners in general.
Oh it’s the slow weeks following the holidays when musicians need to hybernate to survive. The less we consume the longer our holiday gig money will last. Thankfully we will be sojourning to Florida in Feb. to play and hang a bit in the sun. We went there last year because we landed a nice festival called Tropical Heatwave Festival in Tampa. This time so such luck. But we are playing a few clubs and a nice sized swing dance hosted by Swing Time. Also this time we will be trying to get our foot in the door in Key West. We have been trying to get a gig at The Green Parrot but to no avail. So we decided to go there anyway and busk and show up at The Parrot so we can at least meet the right peoples. Kind of an in person press kit. Wish us luck.

Chris
