yes, focus on the friendly faces and if the children are dancing, you are doing your job!

did just that, walter.

i went wireless so i was able to get out amongst the people. took 2 of the kids that were dancing and got them onto a bench that was by the band.

during the last song i got 3 women to sing back up!

folks seemed to like us. i think we werent the usual type of act they got there. we even had people inquire about us playing some other gigs.

great to hear it worked out! i used to play with a triditional blues duo that did this all the time, it led to some bigger things, like a couple of radio appearances

Great to listen that you are playing farmers market. I have not played it, but I have heard about this. Even I am very enthusiast to listen the farmers market from you.
