Restaurante Amanecer En Sevilla (05.17.10)

It's a little busy in Zak World, isn't it? As anyone reading this blog already knows, I did shows on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday of last week, did a 12+ hour recording marathon on Saturday that was streamed out to the world on live video, spent yesterday documenting the studio session, and then tried to get in some real-life work today before having yet another show. Whew. I can't complain of boredom these days, so that's good, and on a general basis, the more music in my life, the better.
However, when I awoke today, the thought of doing a show wasn't all that appealing. Then, when I arrived at my show, I was even more doubtful about it being a good gig; we had some confusion with the stream and a language barrier to cross. However, once that got sorted out, it turned out to be a terrific show. The audience was fun and lively, and I unexpectedly had some friends/fans pop in, which is always a nice sight at a new place.
The venue itself, Restaurante Amanecer en Savilla, is a nice-looking build from people based in Spain (which you probably guessed by the name). They pulled together a nice-sized crowd, and I think everyone had a great time, or at least it seemed that way. In turn, I pulled out a few tunes that I don't do very often. This show, by the way, is one of a bunch of European-based gigs that Sandy Demina put together for me, and I have to once again say thanks to her for being a cool manager. I'm enjoying this tour of Europe!
