I was supposed to gig tonight. I would have been the concert.

Not much I can do about that though.

Nope not at all.

I just got an e-mail the other day the my Tommy Emmanuel concert that was supposed to be last month in April, that had already been postponed to this September is now going to be in May 2021. Jason Isbell has already been postponed a year. It was gonna happen in late this July I think.

Not complaining just sharing. Cause that is what a forum is, a place to share. Just like that big Dinosaur said Sharing Is Caring.

I know genius. I said I'm not complain about it. I'm sharing. If you are Canadian worry about your own country. Covid is a world problem, but what happened is the States is ours and ours to fix, and I don't need you or Neil Young (who is now an American citizen telling me what to do or who to vote for or that I'm bad for what I say).

If you are Canadian. If not sorry for being mean, Ringo please forgive me.

You came around a while back starting trouble with me. I rarley if ever post anything about politics or religion. You wanted to start stirring the pot about the recent events in the USA.

poor you

I Know. I need help got any advice. So are you a Canuck? Cause I live in the USA and served for 23 years without ever holding a gun (well had to shot a piston and rifle in bootcamp). I was an electrician and fuse pullers were my weapon of choice.

Have you considered streaming a concert?   You can actually reach a lot of peoplethat way.   The pay sucks in the beginning but if people end up watching regularly, you can generate money.  Something to think about.  If you need help with how to stream let me know.

very proud Canadian  65 years old , red neck hippy is me, hope things get better with our neighbours to the south...

Love Canada went there on my honeymoon. Been to Toronto and Vancouver and Montreal several times.  It just aggravates me when rock stars and actors and people form other counties tell us  Americans what we need to do and  and who to vote for.  Cause at 53 I can't make up my own mind. I need Neil Young to tell me which candidate is the best. You have been an American citizen for 5 months. Shut your pie hole Neil and make music. That's your job. If you want to yap about politics put the guitar down a run or office.

Things need to get better in the entire world not just here or in the Great White North.

Permanent Waves 40th Anniversary came out Friday. Think I'll rock that today. It's my fav Rush album.

Yet you're watching all the bad news and posting about it. Just to stir up controversy. You're right you do have freedom of speech but talk about your own damn country cuz we all know what you're implying.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I've thought about it, but what I miss about gigging is the live interaction with the audience. I watch them, pace them, talk to them on the mic, tell lame jokes, have running gags with them, and basically play with them. They feed me and that lets me know what to feed them which makes them feed more back to me and so on.

We played one restaurant for 12 years and two owners. They want us back at the end of October IF the economy is decent and COVID is under control.

There is an RV Park that has 600 Canadian RVs and another 300 US RVs every winter. They also hire us in the Summer but only one day per month in the summer as they don't have entertainment that much in the slow season. Still, I'm missing that one too. And all the assorted one-nighters at assorted yacht clubs, country clubs, and retirement developments.

Come winter, the French Canadians are a lot of fun to entertain. Even though there is a language barrier, we can communicate without resorting to the translate app. When the US people are ready to go to bed, the French Canadians are still partying and when the gig is over the venue is still full and happy. They hit the dance floor on the first song and are still there on the last one.

Playing live to an audience is my bliss. COVID took that away, but of course the disease wasn't picking on me personally, it was just being a good virus that happens to be very bad for humans.

I can make more money writing aftermarket style e-disks and fake e-disks for Band-in-a-Box than I could probably make at first streaming. Leilani and I are working on new software now. It takes months to finish a product, but we have savings and social security enough to get by on until then.

I have an e-mail list of about 10,000 customers or potential customers (opt in only). Of those, about 2,000 are regular customers. They have all they want from me so I need to make more product.

Leilani (wife, duo partner) and I get along very well, so being confined with each other is a joy. But we both miss gigging, it's our second favorite thing to do ;)

Totally understandable.  Ok how about a one-time concert for your friends here on the forum?  😀  I'm actually familiar with your act - you guys have been around for a long time.  I used to play the east coast oldies circuit but centered around NY/NJ/CT/MA area.  You would have fit in great with those acts. Leilani has a killer voice and you fill the space in between perfectly.

Here for 6 months and already 400 'Likes'  - yet 3/4 of what you post is negative. Wow.     And the rest is like your opening post here - "I can't go to a concert, poor me."  Then when someone suggests it's a First World Problem - you immediately attack his Nationality.   Neither JVI, nor his nationality should be denigrated.   Ever hear the term  "Race, Color, NATIONAL ORIGIN, Sex, Religion or Age."  ?     You mention Boot Camp and being a Navy veteran (E-8?) often.  Didn't you also mention you drove another member away - whose sign on was .... "NAVYVET"?    When I was in the Navy - we looked forward to Canadian Navy visits, because they knew how to drink beer.  And hold it without getting ugly.  We also didn't have pistols or rifles in Boot Camp.  Funny.   We have enough divisiveness all over - you are either part of the problem or part of the solution.  Pick one.
