100 Days of Practice, Day 35: Off the Wagon?

News: Just got word that the Lindsays are playing for Boston's GreenFest 2009 on City Hall Plaza, August 20-22. Don't know what day or time yet... but rest assured, I'll post it.

But back to the 100 Days now, and very happy to be here.

Does one day break count as okay? I have decided that the answer is yes! Yesterday was the first complete "day off" since this started, and though it was disappointing in a way, it was also due. It was the last full day of the inlaw visit, so there really was little appropriate time to practice... and we were coming off a week of four gigs. It is NOT easy to maintain a practice with visitors in your house, especially when the house is not palatial. But... what a week of gigs. A fabulous concert at Church of the Pilgrimage, a blast with Stage Door Canteen in Buzzards Bay on Thursday, another blast of a ceremony and cocktail hour wedding gig with Steve, for a wonderful couple on Saturday at the Newport Naval Station, playing right into the sunset... and capped off by Stage Door Canteen opening for the Boston Pops in Hyannis on Sunday, with thunderous applause for a band that was on fire. Much excitement!

So, a day off on Monday was well earned.

Tonight, back to the routine and rather pleased! Glad to be back... feels like it's been a while. Gearing up now for the next big thing: Cultural Center of Cape Cod on August 15!
