Oh What Fun!

I haven't been a part of the bar or club scene in many years. I guess the older I've gotten, the more I appreciate quiet nights at home. Playing cards or board games, watching a movie, or just listening to music while talking seem to be as much fun for me now as the rip roaring, loud ass music that I didn't use to be able to get enough of years ago.
Last night I had a date with a fellow I met through a "mainsteam" dating site. He's a musician and plays at open mic night at a local watering hole. He invited me to come hear him play. If memory serves me, and it does seem to fail me a bit more each passing year, last night was the first time I've been in a bar in about 10 years.
This bar is a small, hole in the wall kind of dive. Pine paneling on the walls and ceiling, the waitstaff knows everyone's names and drink of choice. A nice, relaxed atmosphere. The host band got set up and started to rock the joint.
Awesome group, with only a lead guitar and bass. A chick on bass, love girls with guitars that know how to rock out.
The next band up invited my date up to play with them for 3 or 4 songs. Hoss plays the sax and harmonica and wow, he told me he was good, but that man can blow!! They did Turn the Page and on the sax solo, he nailed it. He played the harp on Roadhouse Blues and blew me away with his talent.
We stayed to hear three more acts and each one was wonderful. There's alot of talent here in this area of northwestern Michigan.
I was bebopping in my chair, no real dance floor, and Hoss doesn't dance. I think next time we go, I'm gonna just go dance with myself. I love watching couples who have been dancing together for years. I appreciate anyone who gets out there and feels the music, whether they have rhythym or just think they do.
What song makes you want to shake your money maker? Trip the lights fantastic? Boogie oogie oogie til ya just can't boogie no more?
