Wait a minute, what happened? Where am I? How did I get here?
All common questions, but let’s forget about those for now. We’re back in action.
I just returned from a brief jaunt to Taiwan for the wedding of Web Master Eric Tarn, and it was a lovely time. Let’s call it our wedding party world tour, since technically we formed a band that went through a lineup change and played 2 nights. The performances consisted of one song one night, and 2 songs the next, and I sat in with a strange miscellaneous European dude, in Taiwan looking for a bride, who just wanted to play rockabilly tunes, but let’s not get caught up in the details.
It’s a wonder what jet lag and watery Taiwan Beer can do to a group of out of towners! There’s a strange little ex-pat music scene, where international business people go to play classic rock jams at all hours of the evening on a Wednesday. Very strange. It felt like we were in a Terry Gilliam movie at times, and that’s pretty much where I want to be cinematic-ally when having a surreal travel experience.
In what may have been the greatest wedding band decision of all time, a local Taiwanese Ska Band was hired for the reception, and it was fantastic. Some old R&B covers, some traditional swing songs, all fantastic. We even drank enough Taiwan Beer to get up and play a few numbers
Note Mr Tarn looking extra McCartney-like in his grey 3 piece suit and Hofner bass. Was it any good? I have no idea! But it was a great time. That’s all for now. Workin on some new ideas.
