I decided to hit the Wednesday open mic at Gaffney’s in Bethesda and see what was going on there these days.
I arrived at 9 – which I thought was the start time – only to find that they had begun at 8, and I was late. LOL Nonetheless, they had me up on the stage in short order. The host, Mike, was extremely generous to me with mic time. I got to perform 5 of my own songs — World of My Own, It’s Time To Go, Going Through The Motions, It Sucks To Grow Old, and Two Left Feet. And it was the public debut for two of those songs!
I did OK. Even more important for me were the supportive words from Mike and his right-hand-man John regarding my songs. It felt good knowing someone liked my music.
