Last night our outdoor concert was moved indoors because of an excessive heat warning.
Temperatures were in the high 90’s. It was 97 degrees Fahrenheit (36.11 degrees Celsius) at 7pm, the time when we were supposed to be outside at the park to perform.
Happily, we got to perform indoors, on stage, at the local community center.
Loading up all the equipment was not too bad.
I didn’t know if I wanted to dress up or style my hair.
So I just did the easy thing and pulled back my hair.
When we got to the venue, the Park and Rec director was there to open doors, turn on the lights and assist us.
She called Maddie O’Connor, a high school senior and fit athlete, to help lift and carry in our heavy speakers and other heavy equipment.
Maddie is a great lifter. She lifts weights, plays hockey, softball and basketball.
The performance venue was changed from German Park to the community center. People began to trickle in.
We eventually had a good-sized audience in spite of the heat outside!
I was a little distracted by all the people coming in at the beginning of show so I kind of got off track during our first number.
Here is a recording of our show last night.
Lots of nostalgic songs, but very fun to perform!
