” . . . .It sure looks like it will be a quiet night.”, I said to Carl as we finished setting up our equipment at Bumper’s Landing, Harrison Township.
Even though it was a Saturday night, there wasn’t much happening at 7:30. After all, the dinner crowd had moved on, and the crowd that was watching the football game, was just heading out.
That didn’t leave many people.
It’s a tough time of year, lots and lots happening involving friends, the holidays and and more. We understand all of that, so we pretty much prepared ourselves for the long, slow night ahead.
As I have said many times, the entire reason we entertain is for the people. When they are not part of the equation, it makes things tougher.
Right on time as we began our first song, the door opened up and and two tables were filled by friends we hadn’t seen in a long time. They were going out and about, and saw that we were entertaining at Bumper’s. Just what we both needed.
One table filled, then two then three then the entire place was jumping!
Nothing makes you feel better than when good friends come to share their night with us. The music seems right as it should of, with smiles and happy faces to account for it.
The staff was working hard, and the drinks were working their own special magic as an evening that seemed destined for mediocrity, turned one hundred and eighty degrees on its’ head.
There was dancing, and tambourine playing and game watching and fun and singing and drinking and chatting. It was another great night at Bumper’s Landing. Just what we needed to open the holiday season with a bang.
Next weekend will be the big Back To The 80’s party. That should be bitchin’!!!
