Often, it's hard to remember why we go through what we go through as musicians. Lousy pay, never-ending hours, no holidays, working side jobs so that we can play the gigs we want to (although some of us are trying to pursue careers that will allow us to work in music as our day job).
But then there are concerts like tonight. Great repertoire, wonderful people, responsive audience.....this is why we do what we do.
Sometimes it works, and it's worth every single possible downside to be able to do this day in a day out. What we do is magic, and I wouldn't give it up for the world.
Peace, Love, and Tunes,
