Triumph on the seashore!

Last night was one of the proudest of my life, as Bump 'n' Grindhouse was an absolute smash success! The show ran like clockwork, and every performer absolutely brought their A game the whole night! We were so lucky to put together an array of fabulous talent and it all came together exactly the way we hoped. We had a packed house beyond capacity-in fact they turned people away! The response after the show was so positive, not only from the whole audience but from other performers and producers whose opinion I respect so much.

I'm happy to say that the kind of last-minute changes and potential problems that happen before every show were handled on the fly really well by our producing team. I knew that fortune was smiling on us when one of our performers discovered she'd forgotten her CD 15 minutes before we opened the house, and Clams found it on her Ipod (seriously, you have that Esquival song?!), and the house photographer Norman Blake had a cable connecter in his bag, and the DJ Donny V. dug the right adaptor plug out of the back of the Sideshow's antique soundboard, and bang, we had the music. All proof of how important having a cohesive team that can work together well. And we'll definitely be doing it again!

There's really nothing better then finishing the night off drinking with your friends at Cha-Cha's on the Boardwalk, in the breeze off the water, basking in the glow of a successful show. Absolutely made the hard work, and the previous nearly sleepless night working to just about the limit of capacity, all worth it. I love my friends and I love doing what we do.
