Well after last Thursday’s gig, I’m feeling like I ain’t never had friends like you all. After our Monday gig last night, Seamie said to me – “I can tell you’re still landing” – and he’s right. It can take a while to recover from big milestones like this, and so it is, but underneath it all there is a deep sense of satisfaction about what we all did last week.
So today’s blog will be one of thanks. No names, because there are so many, but you all know who you are.
To the audience – old and new, Sligo and non-Sligo who came out in numbers to make this big step so much easier for us.
To those individuals and companies who forked out that bit extra in order to make the show financially possible for us.
To the musicians and performers, who each (as Dean Gurrie so eloquently said) left their heart and soul on that stage.
To those who recorded the evening’s proceedings so beautifully.
As Dave Flynn quotes in the video below – ‘I got a powerful urge to help you out, so what you want – I really wanna know’ – and that’s how it felt for me with so many people willing to go out of their way for me.
Especially the 5 others on the organising committee who took so many jobs off my hands in the lead-up to the show so I could focus on the music. So a huge thanks to you guys too.
I’ll let you know when all the videos are up on YouTube, but apart from that, this is Theme Night #22 – The Story So Far – put to bed.
Theme Night #23 will begin a new chapter of the story, and it’s less than three months away. Since last Thurs there is a new bar to reach now – so it’s down to work!
