I went out last night, surprise surprise! And in Bini too! The reason? First-born was playing his second gig with his band, currently going by the name of “The Hats” but that just came to them whilst they were playing last night so it could change! And what a great gig it was too!
The neighbour was there feeling as proud as I was and at one point he got up and sang a song with his son! I had gone with my other neighbour and her husband and had so much fun collecting votes, as my dad would say when I would canvas the floor in the village, whilst bumping into people. The pub/pizzeria was packed as it was also tapas night in the village so everyone was out!
And what a talent! I shall now spend the next few sentences boasting about my first born as is my right as his mother. He has a beautiful voice and his guitar playing just gets better and better. His self presence and command of the stage was mind-blowing, he was born to be up there. He made his audience very comfortable and that was the atmosphere he created. I was as proud as punch!
The rest of the band members were equally awesome. Remy on guitar and voice was also comfortable on stage and made us laugh with his playful way. Joe Woodman aka José was the crac on harmonica, what a talent! And Omar, my favourite vegetarian, was beautifully lost in his drums and seemed to be in his own paradise. At one point the four of them were playing whilst facing each other and their connection to each other was a sight to behold. I could feel the connection it was so palpable!
All in all it was a great evening! There were more than a few sore heads today, not least my neighbours!! First-born got back in the early hours and I think I had the proudest mother conversation with him ever, or did I dream that?!
Next Thursday, Bar Es Suro in Binissalem for Thursday tapas – see you there!
