We are playing at Backwaters Saturday night. It will be interesting to see how many people show up.
I am not counting a big crowd. There are tons of events Saturday night in Quincy. Blue Eyed Soul is playing at The Dock, and just down the street from Backwaters, two bands are playing outside by Kutters.
Working in our favor is the heat and the fact it might rain Saturday night, which may drive a few more people inside.
We rely on word of mouth, e-mail and the Net to spread the word about our shows. Sometimes I wonder if it's effective, if we need to advertise more.
In the end, we just show up, play and have a blast, no matter what the crowd is like.
But I will admit - a crowd (big or small) that's into the music is a lot more fun to play for.
So ... come on out Saturday night!
