This event was a private engagement for the hotel chef that was retiring after his twenty-five years of service at this wonderful establishment.
Our job was to provide live background music and what made this event special was that the client asked that we play music to fit a French theme!
Fortunately playing rumba flamenco tunes by the Gipsy Kings made perfect sense as the band is based in France. Also this event allowed me to dust off all my Django Reinhardt charts. Plus a few other French titles I added to the mix such as La vie en Rose.
Anyways… here’s the Guitar Slinger video taking you behind the scenes on my gig.
Today I’m back performing for Iris Optical. This time it’s in West Vancouver.
As you may or may not know, Iris plays my music at their branches across Canada. They also performed my laser eye surgery last April. It’s always such a pleasure working with this wonderful company.
So for today’s event I’ll be performing solo guitar from 6 pm to 8 pm. It’s a short gig for me in a small venue. For this gig I’ll use a couple of small speakers.
Join me again behind the scenes…
