    Good gig, good press. Sucks to be you.
     
  6. Hey Congratulations. I played the Oak Room for a year straight after a two week run and a great review from Stephen Holden. Use every bit of it to your advantage. This kind of thing goes a long way towards securing some top gigs and raising your price a bit. Also, it's the damn Oak Room which has lovely dry acoustics and a listening audience. Have a ball.

    Thnx, guys! Yes, Jason I was there in '06 for 6 weeks w/ Karen Akers, but that was w/o drums. This gig is a Qrt w/ drums and the polite atmosphere is making us keep our stage volume nice & acoustic. Pn is not even miked. Prescott sounds great in there. Using Focus & Wizzy 10 as a personal monitor and miking the bass in the house. For audience sight lines we're sandwiched together in a kinda wacky stage plot, but it's working out..

    "a feel-good selection of take-home tunes guaranteed to pep up the most dyspeptic cynic."

    "Dyspeptic cynic". That's fat platter of New York City bullpoopiee right there.

    Great press.

    Spin that old bitch. She loves it.
