— The dancing starts five songs into the first set.
— They beg you to keep playing nearly four hours later.
— Your bass player looks at you and says, "We need to learn a few more songs."
— You are playing a guitar solo and a dancer in front of you crashes into your music stand and breaks it.
— You and your bandmates just laugh when it happens.
— You are taking a break and suddenly somebody grabs a microphone and starts singing and somebody else gets behind the drums and starts banging on stuff.
— The host and hostess bring out shots of Uzo for the band.
— Everybody goes home happy.
What a great time at The Spear Compound Saturday night! Jeff bid on us at the CAC auction a few months back, and decided to have a party for about 50 of his closest friends.
Perfect weather, perfect place to play, more fun than should be allowed. Gotta love people determined to have a good time.

We had The Mighty One playing drums with us since Pat was off bidding good luck to married step-kids, and we played pretty well. Adam brought his keyboard (traction for the lead singer after loading and unloading) and we did some cool stuff like Piano Man, Walking In Memphis and Faithfully.
Jack showed up after a Heidelburg gig and looked sexy in his high socks. He was so into the people dancing and jumping around that we had to yell at him several times when it came time to sax solos, hysterical fun at his expense.
Rock A Bye had a smooth takeoff and landing for Six Days On The Road ... and the good doctor has the gravelly vocal on LaGrange down to a science.
The band made new friends and it proved once again playing music is the bomb.
Give us about a month and maybe we'll recover and we can do it again!
We will regroup and get ready for the huge show this Friday at Turner Hall.
