I attended a "rent party" of sorts last evening. It was held in the back yard of the leader of the dominant "jazz" band in the area. Just like a park gig, everyone brought there own chairs, drinks & food & a tip jar was there for the band. A good time was had by all. I haven't had a gig since end of June but the effect was great. The day after the party I was walking on air. That flat funk of the past few months was gone. The following week was a bar gig with lots of room for people to isolate. The fans were super appreciative. One guy threw several fivers at each of the players feet as we were playing.
