Swave N. Deboner Are You a 'Performance Junkie'? (25) RE: Are You a 'Performance Junkie'? 31 Mar 05

I've never thought of myself as being good enough to be a performer. Though I do play several instruments, I'm not polished enough to accompany myself, so I never perform with them. The only "performing" I really do is getting up and singing a set or two at the open mic club I hang out at on Friday nights. Tom, the guy that hosts it, is a superb musician, and he sometimes attracts other really good instrumentalists that stop by for a jam session. It's during those times that my best comes out. The music is exceptional; folk, rock, jazz, C&W, blues, and standards. I'm honored to be a part of it. But I don't get upset if I'm not called up. Sometimes, there are so many good singers in the house that not everybody gets a shot. Tom tries to get everybody up in turn, based on when they get there. I usually don't have to worry about that, because people actually request me. I'll admit, I get a degree of personal satisfaction out of that, so I guess it's partly an ego thing. Mostly, I just like to make good music that people appreciate.
