    One of my first paying gigs was with a really bad Polynesian Showband. At one gig, one of the dancers nearly cut off his toe while doing a knife dance. At another gig, at a Senior Home, somebody had a heart attack in the audience, and at yet another gig one of the dancers nearly burned all of his hair off while doing some sort of fire dance. Welcome to show BIZ!!! I was about 20 yeras old, and thank God the gigs have gotten a little better since then.
