that Martin can’t sing Andrew’s songs in an Irish pub with a full bar. Lesson learned. We had the cd release party at the Irish Rover because we figured we would know people there. After all, they were so good to us when Andrew was in the hospital and they knew us and loved Martin’s singing. BUT the only people there that knew us were the few, of the many people we invited, Bobby the owner, and Mike the bodrham player. Even Bobby said he didn’t know anybody and found the crowd to be a tough one. So the other 100 odd people had no clue who we were and pretty much didn’t care. When Martin went up, the chatter in the place was loud and the mic Martin had wasn’t that good, couldn’t hear the guitar that well, Martin was a bit off due to the energy. It was not Martin’s most shinging moment, as he put it.
These songs are a high vibration and need to be performed in the right environment, like where people are there to see us specifically, not as filler. If the Rover still had the open mics on Sundays like they use to, that would have been a great time and place to have the party. At least we did touch a few of the peoples’ hearts there. I saw a few woman with their hand on their heart while Martin sang. One of women came up after and wanted to see Andrew’s picture up close. She could feel his energy from it. You can’t help but feel Andrew’s energy from the 16×22 canvas of him. Since it was Martin AND Andrew’s music cd, I felt it was only fair to have Andrew’s picture there with us. So I put it on our table. Martin did sell 2 cd’s to people we didn’t know before he even went up, so that was great. He then sold 4 more after he sang.
The cake came out incredible! It was very cool what they did. They not only put the cd cover on the cake, they added clouds in the sky, a couple of shamrock rings, and they actually found my past life portrait on here and put it on the front and sides of the cake. It was a shame to eat the cake. It was like eating art.
It was also very cool that most of the people that showed up for us were from the leads club we recently joined. I was surprised.
While you can’t help but have a good time in an Irish pub with Irish sing songs, now we know, note to self, we only do Andrew’s songs in the right environment where people are there to listen to us. ;-) It’s the only way to get the full vibration of these songs.
Ok Leah, you can take a break from writing your little ditties…. for a little while anyway. :-D
IT’S ALL GOOD!
