The next day,we had Jesse,who obviously had more experience....
then Saturday,Stacy-she enjoyed experimenting with new kinds
of subtlety,and was enthusiastic about her part in the show.
They were all fun,and good techs---a rare thing,in this biz.
The people were a real treat--many repeat customers,
all full of praise for Our Girl,and the group in general....
Saturday,we had assorted party groups on hand,and it got rather wild
before it was done.....Mike got kissed (and groped!) onstage...
It was a great night,ending with an ACTUAL éncore call.....
We gladly played "Something Deeper"and left the stage
as happy campers!!!
Sunday,Jesse was back---he had the responsibility of checking our
bandhouse for cleanliness/damage/whatever---no doubt the result
of some group trashing the place in the past....the company policy
is to withhold a portion of the total earnings,pursuant to an inspection--
He was pleased with how the place looked,and handed over a check--
after we finished loading the gear,Marci went to the casino Cashier's
window to cash it,and found it was only the amount of the withholding!! Huh?
I'm sure it caught her off guard,as everything had been peaches all week.
She was making her 2nd trip outside,to tell us what was happening,when
she spied Jesse,who was coming to find HER.......seems that in the process
of getting the checks,inspecting the bandhouse,running the lights,
handing over checks,etc,one of the envelopes stayed in his pocket,
instead of being handed over with the rest.....when he discovered it
on the way home,he naturally hustled right back to the club.
An honest mistake,and we laughed about it..............................afterward.
It was slow going for the first few hours of the trip home...
snow was falling heavily,and lots of mishaps on the road....but we
made it in one piece,ready for a couple days off before the next one....
