What a fun night. Last night I got to perform at the Commodore Grille. It was a Monday night song writing round hosted by Debi Champion. Debi is a great host. She is very patient and kind. It is amazing all of the talent in Nashville.
I saw one guy who looked about sixty with long hair, blue jeans, an old ball cap with a button up shirt with a flannel jacket that set crooked on his shoulders. He acted shy and timid but when he played his song, I could imagine Bruce Springsteen singing it. His voice even reminded me of Springsteen. Never judge a songwriter until you hear their songs.
Also there was a young man who was visiting from Holland. His name was Olaf Putker. I would guess Olaf is about thirteen. He borrowed my guitar and did a great job playing and performing his songs. You can check out him and his brother on facebook. They are called the OneNightRiders. I am going to check out their music after I finish this post. His mom, Emma bought my supper for letting her son play my guitar. That is so nice.
I played three songs. Guitar- A song that gives ladies free advice on how to pick a good man. (Hint) Look at his guitar. A song that I wrote last month called Little Black Dress. I call this my racy song. The hook is (I think I'm in love with you and that little black dress.) It was fun to play. The last song that I played was Long Live the King. It is a song about three Kings. Michael Jackson- King of Pop. Elvis Presley- King of Rock, and Jesus Christ- King of Kings. The hard part was tying all three of them into one song and making it work.
Thanks to Debi Champion and the Commodore Grille for allowing me to play.
