Have another hit of fresh air

Whenever summer rolls around, for musicians it means the prospect of playing outdoor shows. On one hand, you could be running the risk of your gig might be a balmy, sweaty mess. An outdoor show I played from 2 to 4 last Saturday with Words In Flight was one of those scorchers.

On the other hand, your outdoor gig could be cool and breezy — like the pleasant experience I had yesterday with The Flamin’ Caucasians as we made our debut at LaCosta in Sea Isle City, N.J.

We were on from 5 to 9, playing to a crowd of mainly twenty-somethings. The energy level was not unlike some of the riotous college parties we’ve played. We fielded requests for “Twist and Shout” and just plain-ol’ “Shout,” plus “Piano Man” with a lot of audience participation. A favorite of ours at shows like this is “Louie Louie.” As our drummer, Dave Consono, has been fond to say (and I think he’s quoting NRBQ), the people accepted it with glee, and there was much rejoicing.


So I’m hoping that in the coming weeks, it’ll be as nice out as it was yesterday.
