Interesting Gig this Friday

Fun ride and post-ride hang last night. I'm going to miss those little gatherings when the weather and daylight preclude any evening group rides. We'll have to keep it going with FACs.

I won't make tomorrow's FAC as I have a gig in Omaha Friday night backing up Joe Piscopo (of SNL fame). Should be a fun gig - I would imagine we'll be playing a lot of Frank Sinatra arrangements for him to sing to in between comedy bits. We won't get the music until the run-through on Friday afternoon, so I'll find out how the show will work then. I'll keep you all posted on how it goes.

For those of you youngsters who were too young to stay up that late to watch when he was a part of the SNL cast - here is a video of Eddie Murphy as Stevie Wonder with Joe doing his Frank Sinatra impression:

You suppose he's going to turn to you and say, "make it swing -- with a little bounce, baby"

That is an interesting gig. You'll have to tell us how it goes, for sure.
