#7. 101 things in 1001 days. Sing karaoke in a bar.
I selected “Midnight Rider” by the Allman Brothers Band to sing karaoke, a song I love that also seemed fitting for the setting, the Winchester Café. Nervous enough, I freaked out more when “Midnight Rambler” began to play, a great song, too, but not what I was prepared for. The karaoke man switched it to “Midnight Rider,” but it was a slower version, I think the one by Waylon Jennings. It was all good, though, a lot of fun, and the crowd was very supportive. (I cannot sing!) Group versions of “Gimme Three Steps” and “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” followed.
The most fun moment, though, was on an instrumental break during my debut when I said, “How’s everybody doing out there tonight?”
The crowd went wild.
Update: I did include a snippet of my singing in my ebook trailer. You’ve been warned.
