It's Sunday...after 3 shows in 2 days, I am still in my pajamas and have no intention of getting out of them today! Football is on, which means I am glued to my Yahoo stats and yelling at the TV (huge fantasy football geek!) The kids are playing various intstruments --yep; it's always loud here!
But for a few brief minutes it was quiet. And after some amazing shows this weekend, I spent the morning with my coffee updating all of the social media, calendars, and website. I am the newbie to this band stuff, and I have to tell you that I still get so excited to wake up after a show and see that the numbers have jumped up. From a marketing perspective, I should know that means we are doing our job...but I take it very personally (sometimes too much so). I am still getting comfortable with the compliments given in the moment (I know-- forever my own worst critic), but then hours or days later you seek us out on one of the million social media outlets and "like" us, write a small note or post a picture. I am so flattered that you have taken the time to do that, and more importantly, were entertained enough to possibly want to come see us again!! Thank you all for keeping this so much fun for me!
Hopefully we will get to see you soon! We have another show coming up in the city at Dugan's on Halsted. If you have only seen the bigger stage show, here is your chance to get up close and personal...literally. I love the smaller settings sometimes--way more interaction with the crowd. And then there is the big Halloween bash at McGonigal's Irish Pub in Barrington. I don't want to give too much away...but the costumes have been ordered and believe me when I say, you won't want to miss this and you will probably end up with some blackmail photos!!
