What are the odds?

I used to alternate years that I would apply to play the summer festivals and it seemed like even when I did a big blitz of submissions I would get a handful of gigs and then when I did absolutely nothing I would still get a handful of gigs. I think somewhere along the line I just gave up entirely (well, at least until I have a new CD to flog) but wouldn’t you know that I get two offers a day apart and they are for the same date – June 26th. Oh well...maybe that will save me having to decide between Herbie Hancock and Robben Ford, both playing the jazzfest that night. Oh yeah, the downtown core will be locked up tight as a drum for Obama and the other G-20 Leaders.
