Also, your rule for performing (meeting 2 out of 3 criteria) was eye-opening for both my son and myself. Correct me if I'm wrong:
1. Right people to perform with
2. Right venue for the performance
3. Right type of music to perform
Upon discussing this concept (on the way home from LaPlata), my son and I made some necessary changes on what, how and who we were playing with. We are both happier and more psyched about playing.
