Dubai (05.14.10)

I'd be okay with saying that the small crowd who came to my show at Dubai today had a good time, and I'd also say that I was happy to find my voice in good form and my guitar playing smooth. On the flip side, as an artist, you have to be patient with people who don't have a lot of experience hosting music events. I exhibited some of that patience today, but once we got rolling, I enjoyed doing the show.

The people, mostly Italian, were very nice and appreciative of the tunes, and I managed to wedge 13 songs into the hour, mostly because I couldn't blab as much to people between tunes (since I wasn't sure anyone else spoke English). In any case, I think I gained a new fan or two while I was there. Win.
