The Show Must Go On............

Updated: Feb 25, 2021

British rock band Queen performed the song "The Show Must Go On" and how right they were, even when everything around you is going pear-shaped :-) The Show Must Go On...


You may have seen my live performance in Berlin Germany at The Country Music Meeting which was sponsored by Sony Music, but if not, see the video below of me performing Dolly Parton's classic 9 to 5. I had a fantastic time and the show was awesome.

I was told a few weeks before the show that the full performance would be recorded for broadcast on European T.V. So myself and the band got together each week to rehearse before going out to Germany for the show. With live music shows, no matter how much you rehearse the unexpected will always happen and it did...


I remember the night before each band rehearsal being in the kitchen making lots and lots of submarine salmon rolls for the band. I’m pretty sure it was the highlight of the rehearsal. About halfway through the band rehearsal, we would take a coffee break and munch on the salmon rolls, hmmm..nice...


Ok, so back to my story, Spencer (my song-writing partner) and I went out to Germany a few days before the show to perform an acoustic set on the biggest radio station in Germany. Everything is going great...The day of The Country Music Meeting show and the band are arriving in Germany with all their equipment. A musician's equipment is almost sacred, they have spent countless hours programming every patch and sound to perfection, complimenting each song.
