Friday the 25th November I was booked to dance a double set at SafariNows year end party. Graham came with to help carry and take photos. They didn't turn out as well as hoped. Camera struggled as it was getting darker...but, he did take some videos clips which is great! I need videos!
Last week I had ordered some T-shirts for my crew to wear when they accompany me to my gigs. We picked them up an hour before my gig, and on the way, luckily.
Traffic was dreadful on the way to the t-shirt pick up, but then magically cleared up for the final leg of our journey so then we arrived too early.
We went in anyway, and it was probably just as well as my flash drive was not the best option for playing my music, the screen on the speaker was minute and I have lots of folders on my drive. We could not see the names properly as they were truncated. Luckily I have all my songs on my mobile so I just created 2 new playlists on that instead.
I changed into my first costume (pink Hanan) and went out onto the deck to wait with Graham.
There was a waitress walking around serving canapes and she came up to offer us some. Of course I refused, but urged Graham to have some. He's always hungry. A bit later she came to me again and offered more nibbles, I refused and then pointed across to Graham and said she could keep feeding him. After the gig he said she was so sweet, she kept coming up to him with trays of food, so at least he was happy!
The floor was just rough concrete and at the last minute I chickened out of wearing my dance shoes and decided to go barefoot instead. Not sure it was a better idea as the floor had the texture of pumice and my soles were quite tender afterwards.
My second set I had taken my turquoise Sim and a white chiffon skirt as turquoise and white are my clients corporate colours. Sometimes I need inspiration otherwise I just wear my favourites all the time.
